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.
Un peu decu. Je prefere grandement un diplomatico ou un cacique comme produit venant du venezuela.
Bhe cosi malaccio non e.....certo c'e di meglio! Qualia rapporto/prezzo ma i veri Ron sono un altra cosa
drinkable rum, but not interesting at all. packaging is nice
Good for mixed drinks, but nothing special. At the same price, you can find better than this, like Havana 7, Appleton V/X and many more....
Tried to sipp it, but to heavy on alcohol, tried with an ice cube....... better, tried with a Coke - FANTASTIC
When I drunk this rum was for a birthday party and I drunk it all with a friend of mine.
I cannot remember the taste, the smell and so on... but I remember that I really appreciated it!
Absolutely one of my personal favourites. So simple yet complex.
Comme j'aime les rhums trés parfumés et assez doux, evidemment, celui ci sort de mes criteres meme si c'est un rhum trés correct.
I recommend this for different drinks and especially Cuba Libre!
the bottle :), seriously very sweet from my ponit of view, reminded me of my grandmothers jam, really. Too sweet. Someone might like it, but i do not. Happy for having the bottle in December last year along with 10 others to really find the rum i love - pampero aint it.
Now this one is one truly interesting rum. It's dark but unlike most of them it feels almost dry (despite the carmel inside) - strongly tastes of oak and is overall really interesting in smell and flavor.
Fair Rum. Good price, and good taste. Pampero should try improve his top rum.
Dost dobrý rum, který má výborný poměr cena/výkon.
Found the bottle on a friends bar. It stood out in a short-fat way, red seal on top. I liked it. The color is a deep dark honey but the aroma hints of wood, brown sugar and raisin. Once past the nose it is not as sweet as the aroma would suggest. It has a slight burn, better to let it sit or over ice.
Nose: Not much.
Feel: A bit rough. I actually prefer this one on ice which is rare for me. It seemed to smooth it out more.
Taste: Black Pepper-y and raisins. A little bit of wood. Quite nice.
Presentation: Nice colour, nice bottle. It came with a leather covering too which looks nice.
Price: 40USD duty free for 1L.
one of my favourite rums, lovely with coke and a slice of lime
Mooie presentatie en rijk van smaken en geuren. Behoord tot van een van mijn lievelingen rummen.
It's ok, but I didn't care for the flavors in this rum.
Deffinently a rebuy. For the price this is very very good!
Lekker rummetje maar is met zn 40 euro absoluut niet beter dan de matusalem
Ich muß zugeben das ich den Rum erstmal wegen der Optik bestellt habe. Der schöne Lederbeutel in dem die Flasche geliefert wurde, machte schon was her.
Geschmacklich ist es ein sehr guter solider Rum der pur oder in hochwertigen Cocktails gleichermaßen gut zu genießen ist.
Amongst my fave rums excellent stuff
Un aniversario al sabor
I have to acknowledge when I have begun to drink RVM, I minded Pampero was a big big RVM. Sincerely I didn't know the Real RVM, however I must say that, about the RVM simple to find on trade market, it is a good schnapps.
I suggest it like the bottle to buy on holidays.
