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.
Tasty, but not quite great
I am not a fan of this rum. But it’s not horrible. It’s tasty. Dry. But not complex in any way. One note monotony all the way through. It’s a rum note. It’s solid. But it’s boring and overpriced.
Aniversario was suggested to me by a young man from Venesuela yeas ago and is the rum which taught me what sipping rum should aspire to. Beautiful dark honey color, semi sweet vanilla flavor with a hint of smokey after taste. Light burn but very tolerable. Never needs any added ingredients. A solid 9.
Despite its beautiful color and old-school leather-wrapped bottle, the nose on this rum calls to mind the grain spirits, with lots of astringency, and dusky tones. It's rum on the lips though and provides a smooth finish. I found very little complexity of flavor, however, and thus began to favor it with a splash of coconut water. Had expected more, frankly.
I was introduced to Pampero Aniversario by a bartender I knew at a bar I frequented often when I work in NYC. I was looking for something I could enjoy throughout the evening, but would have the flavor to stand up through snack and smoke. The Aniversario is sweet caramel and toffee goodness with light hints of oak. Best when enjoyed alone, but also does well with a splash of ginger beer. Still one of my go to rums.
This Pampero Anniversario rum looks very nice in it's leather purse. It also tastes very nice and strong. Tobacco and wood flavors and some cinnamon and vanilla notes!
Need to add i love the presentation in its little pouch. Small things eh? ;-)
Anyways the rum is a nice balance of caramel, vanilla, nuts and tropical spices with the slightest bit of gingerbread all without being overly sweet. Fine on the rocks or in a cocktail.
