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.
This has a great intense vanilla aroma. The burn is really fast on the tongue for me. It could be just today, but I can’t get great flavors from this.
pekne zabalený v koženom mešci, ale inak priemerný rum nijak zvláštny, ničím výnimočný. neskrýva v sebe nič, čo by ma prinútilo ochutnať ho znova.
A good dark uncomplicated rum which does not have to hide from expensier rums. It is not to sweet. Ideal for beginners.
Very smooth n sweet, reminds you of a fancy dessert.
Sehr gut im Geschmack aber etwas scharf, alkoholig,...
Tento rum skutečně voní po tabáku či doutníku, ale chuťově není špatný.
Lepší korenistejší starší brat Especial, takto si asi predstavujem spodnú hranicu, keď sa povie dobrý rum.
Nice rum from pampero. Like the discreet coconut flavour.
Sehr guter Rum zum Mixen von guten drinks. Auch pur trinkbar mir aber ein wenig zu spritig.
This was slightly more expensive than the Abuelo 7 and the Angostura 7.
The nose is flat, a little buttery smell, a hint of honey in the back
Tast is very similar to Angostura 7, a little less wood, very boring
Finish is pretty dry and a little bitter very similar to Angostura 7 with slightly more afterburn
Even with this beautifull bottle in a nice leather bag: this Rum is not worth the price... the Havana Club Especial for 10$ less a bottle is way better.
The Abuelo 7 takes the cake, way better than Angostura 7 and far ahead of Pampero Aniversario at a similar price. I won't buy again...
příjemný, ve vůni i v chutí je cítit zrání v sudech po sherry Pedro Ximenez, 40% dává o sobě vědět, v této cenové relaci jeden z top
Dostal som ho ako vianocny darcek. Velmi mi vsak nechutil, ma vyraznu alkoholovu chut, ktora prebija vsetko ostatne.
I got this as christmass gift. I don’t like it very much, because it has very strong alcohol taste.
Not to sweet but sweet. Drives down the middle. Drinking in a bar. I’m adding to my collection. More later.
I find myself enjoying this rum, more as a mixer but also a good sipper. Nose is the weakest the first sip bites a bit but begins to expand on the pallet falling short of being great. Some say do not waste as a sipper but this is great with ginger ale and citrus; have not had it with coke but looking forward to trying. This will find a place in my bar.
Not my favourite. And we have it here twice (both are Reserva Exclusiva).
Udemærket smag men så heller ikke mere. Lidt Diplomatico over den, fin til prisen på 150 kr i Tyskland
Meget middelmådig rom. Det er dælme ikke meget at komme efter.
Very good rum for a very good price. Full taste, good odour
Smooth rum. I got warm flavours, like nuts, rich pudding. Yet i got a bit of a quickly taste. Not for mixing imo, instead, sip slowly.
Famous name famous taste... shugarry sweet soft drinkable... fast drinkable :)
Great sipper for any occasion. Not too sweet and no alcohol burn.
The price is so low you don´t feel bad at all if you finish it in one night with a bunch of friends as a sipper or mixer. Always pays to have a bottle ready.
Ein sehr einfacher aber dennoch nicht schlechter Rum. Super zum sippen in Ice oder gemischt in einem Cocktail.
Kúpené tatkovi k narodeninám. No hriech by bol neokostovat. Príjemna chut
