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.
Tento Venezuelský rum vám dá podstatne viac ako čakáte od 4 ročného rumu,ktorý sa dá zohnať pod 20EUR. Cena je až zarážajúca pri pohľade na nádherný obal,vkusnu fľašku a následne peknú vôňu a chuť. Rum sa na nič nehrá,je skôr suchsi,málinko tvrdšiu,no nie príliš. Záver mierne zahreje,no nájdete v ňom príjemnú dochut Sherry i nasladle tony. Výborná voľba a určite najlepšia v kategórii rumov do 20EUR. Skvelá voľba na začiatok pri spoznávaní sveta rumov.
... given the many high ratings here.
To my taste the alcohol is too dominant in nose and aftertaste but the flavors are ok: a bit of vanilla, dry fruits, dark chocolate and wood. Not sweet and not too bitter, whereupon I wish it would be smoother. Sadly nothing special overall.
Rum je prijemne jemny sladkasty. Odporucam v tejto cenovej kategorii.
Smell: Caramel, dry fruits are very intensive, some vanilla
I recommend to leave it 30min before tasting. The alcohol drops significantly.
Taste: A lot of fruit, caramel, burnt sugar and light vanilla, a little sweetness. Farewell with a nice burn.
A big hit for everyday enjoyment. I like this one.
Definitely has its own character and at the age of 4-8 years it delivers a solid performance.
Very good balance between sweetness and flavours. I would love an XO version of pampero.
German: Karamell, stark ausgeprägt sind die Trockenfrüchte, etwas Vanille.
Ich empfehle den 30min vor dem Verkosten stehen zu lassen. Der Alkohol lässt deutlich nach.
Geschmack: Karamell, gebrannter Zucker und Vanille, etwas Süße. Verabschiedet sich mit einem Brennen.
Ein Preisknaller für den täglichen Genuss.
Hat definitiv einen eigenen Charakter und bei einem Alter von 4-8 Jahren, liefert er eine solide Leistung ab.
A very smooth and delicious rum that can be enjoyed on it's own or mixed in your favorite drink.
Nice taste. Ron is dry, colour is nice and taste is mild. Like it.
Pampero od always good choice, sweet and lovely taste
Really nice to sip, but even stronger cacao taste than the especial, not always easy to handle.
This rum has eveeything what good rum should have. Good balance. Deep, warming, complex. Just one or two levels of sweetness too much. Very good however.
It doesn't work for me. At all. Definitely not for sipping.
Just the right amount of texture. Good amount of oak and with a smooth finish. Taste buds just dance after each swallow. Good one to buy for Christmas for an important client... who still calls you by the wrong name
Pampero Anniversario spreads a well rounded flavour while drinking however it is a little too sharp in the finish for my taste.
Very nice looking package with leather bag. Taste exactly as you would expect from rum in this price range. This one is not sweet, and is little bit spicy. I give one extra star for package...
Since the bottle is wrapped in real leather and the bottle is well made I came to believe it would be the equal to my favourite of 12yrs El Dorado. But no. The odeur was unpleasant and the taste likewise. For the price not good. There are much better rums for less money. Big dissatisfaction
This is the rum that started it all for me. I liked the mix of different ”schools” of rum that could be found in this. A good starting point for those going into rum. Today only used for drinks. Good value for the money.
Not bad, I like it is quite dry, but the finish is too woody.
This rum is just fine. Nothing complex or amazing. Just an average Spanish rum
This is sweetened, but ok - even a touch of oak in there. Sherried - or thats what it tastes like.
Light color and smooth taste. To me an unknown brand, which i can definately add to my colleaction, with ron zacapa,diplimatico 2000.
I got this rum as a gift but honestly nothing special. Standard rum. Very strong alcohol taste. Maybe it will be better to drink it with Coke :) The package is better than the taste. Nothing for me.
This is rum for fair price with good quality, i like its taste and colour.
A moderate rum. Not realy good, not realy bad. Nice to have had once.
It’s not a terrible rum. Not good enough to sip but great to mix. Your wife or daughter will appreciate the nice little leather bag it comes in.
I was looking for a rum upgrade for my hurricanes and jungle birds and I couldn't be happier. This rum has a deep, complex flavor that makes it an amazing sipper and capable of adding delicious complexity to already flavorful cocktails. It has a mustiness and a woodiness that add expertly to it's deep molasses base, with everything balancing out. I bought a bottle for a tiki party and it was gone before the night was over (the only rum I can say that about).
