Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Pirate’s Grog rum is produced in Honduras on the island of Roatan by blending various rums from around the Caribbean that have been aged up to 5 years in American oak casks.
The name ""Pirate's Grog"" heralds to the mixture of 90 proof rum and water known as grog, which was first rationed by Admiral Sir Edward Vernon to his ship's crew in the early 1700's.
I've been sipping on the Golden for several years now. The first time was something quite new. I sipped it neat. I fell in love at first sip. It was smooth, no bite. It was soft, sweet, subtle, really easy. I usually drink bourbon, then scotch... neat. Now if I had one choice, it'd be this rum. Always exceptional. My son loves rum, would really love to be able to send him a bottle soon.
This rum is light yet full of flavour. Vanilla and raisin notes are apparent and the Jamaican pot still rum provides a warming finish. We love this rum neat as it goes down easier than anything else on the market!
It is definitely a nice sipping rum. Very smooth and a balanced flavor. Does not leave an alcohol aftertaste, rather it lets you enjoy the flavor of the rum from the first touch of the tongue all the way to the throat.
This has to be the tastiest rum I've ever tried. With over 10 years in the bar trade I have never come across one so smooth. The ageing in Bourbon barrels really help bring in the flavour tones of vanilla and raisins. Sipping or as an espresso rumtini. Winning
I was given this rum in a beautiful chest for my birthday, it even had a little scroll in the box which my hubby had written a nice happy birthday message on. Unfortunately it's been polished off already so I'm hoping bottle number two will be under the Xmas tree. We drank it neat most of the time but it also mixed really well with Cawston's pressed apple and ginger juice. I'd definitely recommend this rum to a friend :)
This is a must buy for me personally.
I recently received a bottle for Christmas and it's lovely. Smooth to drink and great on the nose, very very moreish.
Tested on the basis of this assessment. Very good mild taste and aroma, amazing price/performance ratio!
Really nice flavours and goes well with Fritz Cola.
Very smooth for such a young aged rum (5 years), and a lovely rich flavour, very good
For a rum that is only 5 years old this really surprised me with its delicate flavours and complexity. Most importantly, it tastes delicious too!
I like this rum for its strong taste and nice aroma. Also like oldschool bottle design.
A surprisingly pleasant rum. Great neat or with cola. Would definitely recommend.
When you see the word grog, you imagine what the navy used to drink in a sloshed rum flagon... So it's a surprise when you get a rum that's delicious and lovely blend of flavours ... You can tell this is a blended rum but it is serious competition for more expensive rums
Got this one recommended by a friend. What a surprise that rum for such a ridiculous price can taste so good.
10/10 would drink again! Very nice mild taste with strong aromas!
Smooth , light and tasty. Let it sit in the glass for 10 minutes so the alcohol vapour dissipates , then the flavours come through. Vanilla , Butterscotch , sugar cane, and has an excellent finish with no burn.Super impressive for a youngish rum. Also great mixer with both ginger beer and cola. Reminds me of "Stolen Golden Rum" from this side of the world. I will treat myself to a bottle of the Pirates Grog No. 13 next.
A great light rum, great for sipping with lots of flavour
This is a rum in the lower price category but you`ll be surprised by It`s content. This is just a delicious, light (38.5 alc.vol.) , tasty one wich comes in a real nice bottle. It`s also a lttle sweet, probably a great after dinner rum. Will buy again for sure!
Wow, complex rum, sharp in the beginning, good burn, becomes more sweeter in the mouth.
I taste a lot of raisins :))
Really surprised how good this is. Not sure i know a better one for a rum and coke.
Tento rum mi docela chutnal. Velice zajímavý a dobrý.
Nice gold rum good mixer all round. Too young to sip but goes well with cola, ginger ale or juice
I don't love this but I found once I'd opened the bottle I kept on reaching for it. Not sure why. Mixes well, bit of a kick on it's own. Love the bottle and the branding.
This is a clean clinical rum that ticks all the right boxes. For the price only a few can match it. Has enough flavour n aroma to impress for the age. Reminds me of Atlantico private cask. Nice bottle to.
