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.
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.
Nice smooth sipping rum, like a more upmarket Chairman's Reserve. No alcohol burn but leaves a nice lasting warm belly sensation
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
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.
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.
This is a delightfully dark sipping rum that has a great finish! I love the lite fruity and slightly vanilla taste. This rum equals or surpasses many higher priced rums. Definitely worth having on hand.
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.
Most prominently in the taste is a leathery and bitter tobacco flavor with a touch of vanilla. This is masterfully balanced out with brown sugar. Although this rum is very refined, I prefer to mix high-end drinks with it, which I personally think makes better use of the bitter taste. So far my favorite drink with this is a classic Mojito.
If you drink it straight up, I find that its character is much improved when you let it rest in the glass for at least 5 minutes.
Great sipping rum. Not as rich as Diplo Reserva Exclusiva, but in the ballpark. Sweetness is subtle. A personal favorite to have with a flavored seltzer (usually lime or orange-vanilla).
Great rum that I consistently find around $33. It's good enough to drink on the rocks, but also great for a dark n stormy. Great value in this smooth drinking rum
Pampero Aniversario - like it for well balanced aroma and taste.
It definitely worth's to test it, for that money it is good and I would say nothing more. Package and bottle is stylish and color of the rum is very promising. But over all I would say it is just average, good choice for someone who is able to find there more than just a obvious tastes, I would say this can really evaluate professionals.
It has a smooth taste... you can drink it alone or combined with coke.. a bit pricy for what it is
Good tasting rum, good nose, mouth and finish. For the price it is what i would call a reasonable purchase. I like it with one rock or neat. No sweetness just plain ole man's rum. Arrrrrgg..
Beautiful design with the leather pocket and beautiful barell like bottle. Flavour is tasty, full and spicy. I like this rum very much
What can I say about this rum? It's smells nice, one of those that become quite better with a little bit of air. But still, the good smell is not on the surface.
The same with the taste. It has that hard and bitter leather with tobacco taste, wich is nice. But (the Obvious but), it is not as good as it suppose to be. At least that is what I kept thinking. I liked it, but something was off there.
This rum left me guessing, like the flirt of a lady you saw that afternoon on the station. Was it a flirt, or something you wished for?
Dark, sweet and nice rum, good to taste with an Habanos, and it is not very expensive.
Der Pampero Aniversario hat einen sehr leckeren Geschmack und bietet ein tolles Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Für 20€ ein sehr guter Tropfen.
Süßlicher Geschmack mit Vanillenote, leicht alkoholischer Abgang und guter Nachgeschmack. Nicht so lecker wie der Botucal Reserva Exclusiva, dennoch sehr gut.
Die Flasche sieht edel aus und der Ledersack ist auch ein schönes Detail.
Between the leather packaging, the dark pour, and the complex yet approachable taste, this is one of my go to introductory rums, especially for bourbon heads.
This pours a dark, substantial maroon, matching its leather bag wrapper. The nose is toffee, the taste is thst with taste is nuts, alcohol, and oak. This warms the whpke way down but does not burn.
Way more layered than you would expect. The more it breathes and the more you sip, the .ore you learn. Good neat or with ice. A stellar blend overall.
En rom med meget duft. den smager til gengæld ikke af meget. ser eksklusiv ud i læder posen
The smell of this rum is thirteen in a dozen, the taste is slight oak en spice. The best price/taste i had so far(2-9-2017)
This bottle is a dream. I've been drinking it for years and it never disappoints. Definitely in my top five
Pampero Aniversario Reserva Exclusiva used to be on my Top 10 out of well over 300 aged rums for years, but several new findings have dropped it to the Top 20 list. Pampero has plenty of traditional aged rum flavors, hardly any burn and would be a great addition to your rum collection. Blind test Pampero Aniversario Reserva Exclusiva with the Bacoo 12 year old and I will get you have a hard time figuring which is which.
