As stated in the title, Pampero Aniversario is the rum that started me on my appreciation of good sipping rums some 30+ years ago. Up until that point, the taste of the spirits I had tried never lived up to the wonderful, rich smell that a lot of rums dangled in front of you but didn't deliver on when hitting the palate. All that changed with my first bottle of this one: vanilla, wood, and leather with a very slight undercurrent of buttery varnish. It was like a veil had been lifted off of my taste buds. Are there better rums to be had? Absolutely. Are there also worse ones? Most definitely. And I've had many of both camps. Probably should be a "7" on the ratings scale but, emotionally speaking, this one has a special place in my heart. You could do a lot worse for an introduction to sipping rums.
I prefer it as an ornament, though. The leather satchel is great! I found it easy to drink, without bite or bold taste. Interesting price, too. Some people like it a lot, but i find it quite generic, lacks some wow factor for sure. Wood and smoke in the aftertaste, then leather and burnt caramel undertones. One bottle of that stuff and i was done with it. I regret drinking it; it would be better being displayed upon my desk!
Perfectly balanced and not too sweet or too dry. Alcohol doesn’t dominate. Some molasses and very light vanilla with a bit of caramel over hints of smokiness. Really only a neat sipper. Could only be better if you like one or another aspect to be heavy instead of perfectly balanced.
Nice bottle exterior, okay taste. A little too much alcohol in the taste tho.
Definitely worth the money.
Learning sipping rums, this is delicious with little to no heat. Best bang for the buck I've found so far.
I bought it in a leather pouch which i found a little tacky, but to my astonishment what it lacked in presentation it delivered in taste. A sweet rich rum, that's gone before you know it. A solid choice.
So smooth. Chocolate, coffee and caramel flavors with a surprising tobacco finish at the back of the throat.
