As well as being the spiritual home to the famous rum-based medicinal bitters, Venezuela makes some seriously good barrel-aged golden and dark rums. Pampero Aniversario was first crafted in 1963 to commemorate the company’s 25th anniversary. Triple distilled via a continuous still, the blend is composed of four year old rums aged in both whisky and sherry barrels. If it sounds young by world standards, keep in mind spirits mature roughly three times faster in the Amazonian climate than regions like Scotland or France.

Tasting note: Fabulous deep copper colour. Stunning rum aromatics feature a superb medley of praline, milk chocolate, dates, honeycomb and raw sugar. Follows through with a graceful, silky delivery with flavours of dates, honey and vanilla custard and a warming, spicy, new leather, pipe tobacco and honeycomb aftertaste. A gorgeous middleweight style showcasing pitch perfect sweet/dry balance. The packaging is a plus. 40% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... Deep mahogany. Toffee, baked apple, walnut, glue, and tobacco aromas. Rich entry leads to a dryish medium-full body with treacle, spice, suede flavors. Finishes with a long rich fade of charred oak, spice flavors. A richly styled sipper with great balance. Celebrate the return of a classic rum.
