Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Pampero Aniversario was first crafted in 1963 to commemorate the Pampero company’s 25th anniversary. The rum is a blend of rums ranging in maturity from four to six years and aged in whisky and bourbon barrels.
The Pampero distillery was founded by Alejandro Hernández of Venezuela in 1938. The brand is now a division of the world’s largest liquor holding company, Diageo.
At first sip I expected it to be sweeter and more viscous based on the nose and color. The initial taste is some leathery tobacco that I didn't expect but not in an overpowering or negative way. There's some delicious sweet vanilla, brown sugar flavor that I really enjoy that layers itself over the dry flavors from the beginning. It's buttery and nutty while not being to heavy. Last night I was drinking El Dorado 15 which is a much more sugary and viscous rum and tonight my first ever taste of Pampero. While less sweet, it still stood up to that sugar bomb but without having nearly as much sugar added to it. (ED 15 has about 35g/L while Pampero has about 12g/L). Really nice balance of sweet and dry that I have been looking for in a rum. There is a base flavor that reminds me of other great oaky rums followed by a unique nutty vanilla cake flavor. It's just so good and definitely up there with the best I've had yet. Go get some!
Update: just wanted to mention that it does have some bite in the finish and its not the absolute smoothest rum ive had but the flavors are just so good that I don't mind a little burn to go with it . Still really well balanced and awesome. Update 2: I must say that this rum is best enjoyed NEAT! I've noticed that if I add ice or water to it then it actually becomes worse and the flavor becomes more bitter and much less enjoyable. I can tell now that the added sugar definitely benefits this rum which appears older than it actually is. You may have some difficulty when initially switching back to drinking unsugared rums. Still great for sipping.
Der Rum spielt für mich in der Mittelklasse, leider steht ein recht scharfer Alkoholgeschmack im Vordergrund welcher bei anderen Rums in dieser Preisklasse nicht zu finden ist. Bei uns ist der Rum leider auch zimlich teuer, zum Mischen z.B. für Cuba Libre wäre er gut geeignet, ist jedoch etwas schade für diesen Preis.
Classico rum commerciale da bere in compagnia niente di speciale. Ottimo da bere col succo alla pera
Taste begins with strong alcoholic flavour, but give it a time, third sip won't dissapoint you. Still not sure if it is worth the money thou.
About $30 a bottle at my local liquor store. Nice vanilla note, not too smooth or sweet like a spiced rum - still has a little bite. A good daily sipper. I typically go neat with everything I drink.
Byl to dárek od nejlepšího přítele, takže musí být dobrý :)
Takový chuťový průměr z tmavých rumů, ale příliš hustý, sladký, mix různých aroma bez specifické chuťové výraznosti. Neadekvátní cena v atraktivním balení. Můj první ochutnaný rum s korkovým uzávěrem.
Strong aromas, taste comes through after a delayed moment but lingers for a while. Nice with a single block of ice. Strong smokey/bitter taste, hint of vanilla.
Preisleistungsverhältnis passt! Für dieses Geld ein richtig guter Rum!
Rum famoso, molto pubblicizzato. Lo considero un ottimo level entry nel mondo dei rum. Abbastanza equilibrato nei sapori anche se presenta note di alcool un po' persistenti . Ottimo da presentare per una bevuta in compagnia non necessariamente da bere "nei peggior bar di Caracas" come diceva la pubblicità e soprattutto senza spendere cifre folli. Buono col cioccolato ma anche mischiato per i cocktail. Consigliato. Un classico delle bevute in compagnia.
PAMPERO ANIVERSARIO...jällegi pean tõdema vanarahva tarkust--mida vähem kulinaid seda parem maitse. Meelitas mind ostma oma kaunis nahkkotis. Joodud pitsike ja nüüd ta siis seisab siin kapikeses ja ootab minu vanadust ja maitsemeelte langemist... Hind 30 eurot
Nice subtle aroma in the bottle and the flavor that hits the tongue is rather sweet but then a bitterness hits which lingers....way too long. Even when the burn eases...and it's a rather mild burn...the bitterness just becomes a bad aftertaste. It's not a bad rum but I would have rated it higher except for the aftertaste. I may amend my review after trying it in Coke Zero. That may redeem this rum.
Not so great, but may be very good for mixing, albeit I didnt try that.
Good for mix with cola. Good price for value......
En fin rom som kan nydes ren eller i cocktails. ..
An unbelievable bargain! Very easy to drink either neat or mixed. A personal favorite!
Very sweet scent. Tastes sweet but also spicy. I like it for mixing.
IT looks Great But the taste isnt longlasting, and isnt vert full.
it is very good rum. Full of flavours. Similar to El Dorado 12. Same bitter-sweet finish. Good nose and in mouth same experience. Great value for money as well.
...der Rum an sich leider keine Offenbarung. Bestenfalls zum Mixen geeignet - da gibts aber in der Preisklasse viel bessere.
Smooth and creamy taste, but not too aweet. Good straight or on the rocks
Pije se lehce a je dobry, vynikajici na vecer a neurazi
Den kommer i en smart læderposer og ser så sød ud :)
Da jeg ikke har prøvet Pampero rom før, tænker jeg, at jeg ville starte med denne da den endda var på tilbud til sølle 140 kr :)
Un peu decu. Je prefere grandement un diplomatico ou un cacique comme produit venant du venezuela.
