In 1938 Industrias Pampero, C.A., a distillery in Venezuela was established. This distillery is reputed to be the first distillery in Venezuela to set the high standards for which Venezuelan Rum is now famous for. The Pampero brand is now controlled by Diageo, one of the largest liquor companies in the world, and Diageo is responsible for marketing and selling the Pampero Rums Wordwide.
Here is an excerpt from my Review:
In the glass the rum is dark, rich and inviting. A quick swirl reveals moderate legs trailing down the glass and brings scents of brown sugar (baking) spices to the fore. Heavy dark brown sugar, underlain with caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg and spicy oak tannin present a luxurious bouquet to the nose. Hints of tobacco and and unfinished leather seem to come and go, and even a few tea leaves seemed scattered in the breezes. This is heady stuff.
