Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Has a lot of wow factor as a gift due to the leather sack. Very smooth, so watch how much ice you use. Oaky vanilla flavour is really nice.
This looks great with the leather presentation pouch. The first scent is sweet caramel (sticky toffee pudding!) but was a bit harsh. This soon mellowed and a drop of ice helps.
Great for sipping. A touch expensive to use as a mixer but tastes good either way.
I like this rum, smooth, medium-bodied, great for sipping. I commend the brand for its use of a leather sack, a unique and premium-looking packaging.
kann nicht verstehen, warum er hier von einigen als "nicht so Süß" beschrieben wird.
Meiner Meinung nach ähnlich dem Diplomatico sehr süß, dennoch gefällig mit viel Aroma. Kann pur getrunken werden, macht sich aber hervorragend als Basis für einen Cuba Libre.
This rum has a nice smell to it. Brown sugar, oak, spice, and tobacco. Taste is similar, but to me it's a bit harsh for a 40%abv rum. It's a fairly decent rum, but I prefer a little more sweetness such as found in other Venezuelan rums like the Santa Teresa 1796 and the Diplomatico Reserva.
This rum has a nice "edge". Not so sweet. But still very good sipping rum. Love the leather sack!
This rum has been sitting in my collection for about a year... I recall that it had a very strong bite, so I was not in a hurry to re-visit. That said, it was actually OK. It is nearly odourless, and has a dark brown colour, with a tinge of red. While it did burn the throat a little, it actually wasn't too harsh. It was a little sweet, but not too complex - I didn't really taste much of anything. I don't really expect much from a "tweener" rum (Aged > 4 but
Pampero Aniversario Reserva Exclusiva 40% Venezuela
Eye: Worn brownish copper
Nose: Pleasingly coy nose on this one at introduction. Smells a little too sweet and one dimensional to be refined and makes me think it is quiet young with the ambition to seem older than it is. Like a teenage boy with grandads perfume on. Kind of oily and thick which can be promising but the lack of edge raises a red flag for me. Then comes the compulsory butter scotch and caramel, some dried fruits, hazel and walnuts. Detect also margarine (that´s a first) and vanilla coke. It also reminds me of Versace Edt Pour Homme but I suspect I´ve bumped into someone with that fragrance on earlier today. It develops somewhat in the glass and after a while I love the smell. Nougat, some citrus like orange marmalade and grape fruit zest. Very nice, could smell this all night!
Mouth: Yes, very sweet. Oh, and it comes in waves. First a small swell of cool sweetness with some exotic fruits, then a slightly larger swell carrying dried fruits and nougat and finishes with a monster wave of embrowned butter and burnt sugar, molasses even. This is the fault in my humble opinion. It is very mellow throughout the whole palate and is evenly presented with its entire register of flavors. In that respect it is very well balanced. I like each and every element but it is just too sweet and sugary which in the long run is …boring. Taste good though.
Reaction: As usual I don´t have a clue of what I am drinking. Apart from the treacle-like sweetness it is rather gentle and cool which is an unusual but welcome feature. It is also anonymous and lack that individuality I do appreciate so much in 40%-ABV-and-above-spirits. After 30 minutes I don´t agree with myself about the age statement anymore. I feels older and more self-confident towards the end but it seem to have lost interest in itself. Like an I-am-what-I-am-attitude. Good stuff but a tad sweet and simple. Seems like a bargain taking the price into account, but again, when do I drink it?
Price: 289 SEK
Tasted: 2016, In a Riedel Sommelier Cognac XO glass at room temperature.
Package in leather sack is very nice. Gratifying as a gift for someone. Surely will not be disappointed what is concealed inside bottle.
Definitely needs some time to breathe in a glass because first you are hammered with strong alcohol smell. After few minutes you can find there some sweet,oaky and vanilla aroma.
Taste is just little sweet, also vanilla oak and smoky tones. Burns just little and everything is well balanced.
Don't waste with this stuff for mixing wiht coke!
More bite than expected, but decent stuff. You're first greeted by a sharp alcohol smell, then a sweet aroma, and a large amount of oak. In the end, a great package for an OK rum.
Revisit- Still harsh, more smoke, 6

Super rum. that good! Smooth tasting, not to sweet, tastefull really good on the rocks or not if you like. Get your hands on a bottle!
My go to rum. It's in short supply right now and I found two bottles this weekend at a store about 45 minutes from home so I'm good for a while. That said I'm thinking of driving another couple of hours up the road to get another bottle or two. It's that good! Smooth tasting, not to sweet or spicy. I call it a grownup rum. If you can get your hands on a bottle do it.
This is a very well blended smooth rum, with a full very clasic rummy body. Letting it breath a bit in the glass removes the very faint alcohol taste that's there from the beginning. Great aftertaste, not much wood.
Bottle design and the leather pouch is a very good thing for those of you (like me!) who enjoy such things.
A vastly underrated rum. Rich complex and full of flavour. Wonderfully presented as well. Up there as one of favourites
Buen ron Buenas notas a vainilla y canela. Típico ron venezolano
Mein 3. Rating und mein Start in die gehobenere Rum-Welt:
Wer deutlich mehr als Havana Club und Captain Morgan will, der sollte zum Pampero im Lederbeutel greifen! Ein Quantensprung dagegen.
Preis: ca. 19-25€
Süße ist zu riechen, Toffee und Karamell....leichte Alkoholschärfe ebenfalls....man will sofort probieren!
Geschmack pur (Note 4):
Es dominiert leider die Schärfe des Alkohols. Er ist recht sprittig und die Aromen des leckeren Geruchs sind sofort weg. Im Nachklang wird er etwas rauchig, und/oder sogar bitter? Der Nachgeschmack ist dann nicht schlecht, erscheint insgesamt aber zu unrund und zu scharf.
Geschmack in Cola (Note 7):
Hier kommt sofort wieder die Toffee und Karamell-Note zum Vorschein. Die leichte Sprittigkeit (eines Havana Clubs) ist zwar ebenfalls vorhanden, erscheint mir allerdings um einiges süßer und unaufdringlicher. Insgesamt harmoniert der Pampero Aniversario Reserva Exclusiva einfach super mit Cola. Und da ich Rum am liebsten in Cola trinke, ist er momentan mein Lieblings Mix-Rum.
I like Pampero design - leather sack is great. But taste of thi rum is well balanced.
One of the best rums from Venezuela. It has a great Flavor with a touch of wood
Very nice aroma. Spicy, affordable sweetness, at the end a bit harsh. Definitely worthy of tasting moreover lower price compared to similar quality rums.
chutna dobre, nevoni ale chutove vyvazeny jjjjjjjjj
Tried it long time ago on a party and didn't pay much attention and finally got a bottle for 21 euros, a very competitive price (normally it costst here 5 more). With Coke and lime it makes one of the best mixers I've ever tried. It tastes so good I must stop myself to not drink it every night. It's even better than Diplomatico Mantuano I reviewed last time that makes a awesome mixer too, but this one is a bit nicer, full of flavours I can't even define correctly, well balanced, smooth. Haven't tried to sip it, and sincerely I see no need to as it matches so nice in Cuba Libre I want to keep to that. If there was a 8,5 I would give it to this rum.
This rum is very nice. It have sweet, caramel aroma with smoke tones. Taste have nice sharp hit but then there is very sweet mid-taste ending in little spicy and smokey finish.
The leather sack makes it nice to give this rum as a gift. It starts with a alcohol hardness, but a ball of ice does the trick!
Good sipping rum for the weekends.
