Funny story about how we came to find this particular rum. Our brother Ken shares our love of fine rum, and when he visits us in the Keys, we normally consume mass quantities. On a visit years ago, he picked up a bottle of Anniversario Pampero at one of our local
If you want to spend the money, the Ron Zacapa XO is also a wonderful rum. It is more than twice the price of the 23 year old, and for our money, we say buy it once to taste it and to get the pretty decanter, then go back to the 23 anos.
As mentioned, Anniversario Pampero is our second favorite rum. Considering it's only two years old compared to 23 year old Zacapa, it has amazing character. It also has a nice bite, in contrast to Zacapa's incredible smoothness. But, sometimes you want the bite!
