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.
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.
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?
Nice smooth sipping rum, like a more upmarket Chairman's Reserve. No alcohol burn but leaves a nice lasting warm belly sensation
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..
This rum is fantastic if you like woody, smoky sweet and caramel all in one. There is really nothing that compares to this flavor wise. Other rums gravitate around it, but I personally like very much the blend of flavors this rum offers. The only other rum that compares to this one flavor wise is the Kirk and Sweeney's either the 12 or 18 year old. This is how I rank them:
- K&S 12: 7
- K&S 18: 8
- Pampero Aniversario: 9
Well...tried after a Matuzalem 15 it results not so fine, but it's a nice rum for cocktails, it's a little harsh if taken alone. Good q/p ratio
À venir ..........................................................................
Tohle byl můj první z lepších rumů a byl jsem překvapen. Velice dobré pití mě zlákalo k ochutnávání dalších kousků.
Beautiful design with the leather pocket and beautiful barell like bottle. Flavour is tasty, full and spicy. I like this rum very much
Love this Rum, it has became one of my favorites. Love the rich taste... highly recommend it
Easy drinking rum. A little on the sweet side but fun to drink. Very little hangover from this rum. Very well made.
I drink it with ice or in mixed drinks. A high quality rum for parties. Your guests will be happy.
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.
Vanilla and caramel, may be a with a hint of soft-bitter almond.
If you'd like to enjoy a nice moment with your friends at a cosy apartment in a city like Prague.
Určitě stojí za vyzkoušení. Vyvážená chuť a buket.
Ranked 7.5 on my scale, but the bottles here are never half full. Maybe an 8. Nice oaky flavor, but missing just a bit of that molasses flavor that I enjoy.
Nu er det er det et stykke tid siden jeg har fået den men jeg var ikke så begejstret over den men ok
Did no especially dislike anything about this rum. But also didnt find anything especially enjoyable. Quite regular sipper at reasonable price. Not bad, not great.
This rum is a joy to drink. It has a very good flavor and I will buy more bottles, as long as they are available. The medals are well earned.
Trochu ostřejší. Ale za cca 650 Kč je to dobré pití.
Rum met karakter. Prachtige kleur. Verstopt in een mooi lederen jasje. Je proeft meteen een vleugje whisky. Drinkt lekker on the rocks maar ook met een cola.
Een heel mooie fles met een zeer mooie donker bruine kleur. Het bijhorende leren zakje past er mooi bij.
Deze rum is duidelijk gerijpt op whisky vaten, je proeft het hout en de scherpere smaak van whisky. Zeker de moeite waard om eens te proeven.
Een tof flesje in een lederen zakje doet meteen het beste verhopen. De kleur is heel erg mooi diep bruin, de geur komt iets straffer binnen...
Tijdens het eerste proefmoment komt een rokerige, houtachtige smaak naar voor die naarmate de rum vordert steeds aangenamer aanvoelt. Lekker, meer karakter voor de wat volwassen rumdrinker.
