Pampero Especial is a pioneer in the history of venezuelan rum. It set a new benchmark in quality when it changed the laws of a country. After Pampero’s founders began ageing their rum in oak casks in 1938, Especial became the first Venezuelan rum to be officially designated ‘aged’ (añejo). The rum undergoes triple distillation and the oak casks used for the aging process, previously used for ageing Bourbon whisky up to five times. Enjoy it neat on in cocktails
Nose: Citrus aromas mainly lemon zest with notes of vanilla, wood and cigar box.
Palate: Creamy texture with spices. Flavors like overipe fruits, vanilla, butterscotch and honey with a descreet smokiness create a unique complexity.
Aftertaste: Long and spicy. A ginger flavor emerge in the finish with a bittersweet taste."A Night In Old Mandalay"
