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.
Recommendable to most
The rum is pretty straightforward, on the nose it is strong molasses and apples, the taste contains also toffee and tropical fruits. When sipped, the rum is smooth at the beginning of the taste profile and it gives an alcohol bite in the end, sort of Jamaica pot still style, the aftertaste is short. On the rocks it can be considered as a kind of an uncomplicated sipper, works nice with coke. Could not detect added sugar. Good and honest blend, worth its price.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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
Haven't tried sipping this, because I'm not sure that's what it's for. Mixed with an ice cube and coke it's really quite good. Not one single flavour stands out, in a good way. Low on burn and sugar.
Jamaican pot still base can't be denied here and it's a good stuff too.
Quite direct rum - no fancy nonsense, straight to the point. Nice warming burn, but not too much.
Nice bottle and label, stylish.
Fantastic nose full of butterscotch, quite fruity, taste is clean with not many notes standing out - some light vanilla , almost no burn or spice. Short nice finish. I could imagine it would make a fantastic high-end mixer, as it is easy sipper as well especially considering the limited aging.
