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
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.
Beautiful color led me to beleive this could rival the el Dorado's for flavor. It was slightly disappointing though based on the beautiful reddish black. It has nice molassas and vanilla with a little bit of butterscotch on the nose and just a hint of oak spice. There is something I cannot place when I swirl it covered and then sniff. Almost a buttery nougat or toffee. Very light on the palate with a tinge of bite. It finishes very smooth giving more molassas and vanilla. A little bit of clove and burnt sugar were also present. Very good sipper and I highly recommend it as a change up. Tried it again and wow. The spices you.get just holding it in your mouth are great. Try to enjoy it slowly and really switch it around.
Very good rum. Perfect choice for those, who don´t like sweet rum, but want top quality tasty rum. The first tase is spicy but then after second try you will feel very interesting taste. One of my favorite even if it isn´t A.H.Riise.
Awesome nutty and sweet taste. Cant go wrong with this sipping rum. Do not waste by mixing it. An ice cube will help tone down its sweetness.
Nice smooth sipping rum, like a more upmarket Chairman's Reserve. No alcohol burn but leaves a nice lasting warm belly sensation

Aroma: Rum Pampero Aniversario je velmi tmavý, v lahvi až mahagonové barvy, ve sklence je přece jen průsvitnější, řekl bych kaštanový odstín.
Opojná vůně se line z lahve už při nalévání. V krásně vyzrálé vůni cítím máslový karamel, tmavou melasu, vanilku, snad trošku dřevo. Úplně láká k napití.
Chuť: V chuti objevíte po prvním až máslovém dojmu karamel, dřevo, kávu, nasládlé koření, dozvuk je krásně hřejivý a kořenitý.
Shrnutí: Stálice mého baru, jako plus je velmi přijatelná cena.
A 8 year age rum, solid with a very complex sensory notes, round and balanced, at sight its deep amber color shows us its long, its intense but deep with complex aroma of wood, vaibilla, caramel, dried fruits and chocolate, is the art of blending, winner 5 times gold medal in San Francisco World Spirits Competition
The Pampero Aniversario is a dark rich amber colored rum with a wonderful smell that opened my noise up. I don't remember the exact smell of the rum, but I do remember the way my noise opened up to the rum. This was an incredible buy for around $35 that had tones of sweet flavors from the molasses, and hints of vanillas. The finish on this glass was a bit stiffer, which I liked, slimier to a bourbon. This finish comes from the pre-aged bourbon barrels the rum is blended in, and is currently my favorite rum that is put in bourbon barrels. This rum is far better than the Flor da Cona 12 year, and is half the cost. I would recommend this to any bourbon fan, or blended rum fans.
Velmi lahodný rum. Ani sladký ani suchý, chuť zprvu po vanilce, na konci do mandlových tónů. Po polknutí příjemně zahřeje v hrdle. Minimální lihovatost. Doporučuji, moc dobrý rum.
Good value for money.
Stand out compared to other rum's that cost just as much.
Tabaco, leather and and hint of vanilla and a fruity note.
