I got this bottle for a gift and I was so happy. It is super sweet but very smooth compared to the regular Pyrat. This is an excellent sipper but for the price point, it is not an every day sipper as this is an expensive bottle. A little too expensive if you ask me which is why this is not a 10 for me

Very smooth but also very expensive. Complex flavour great for a treat every once and awhile.

Has a pleasant orange note to it. Good straight or on the rocks.

Fast jeder kennt den Pyrat XO, doch dieser Rum hier kann nicht damit verglichen werden. Der XO ist für mich eine Zuckerbrühe mit Orangengeschmack. Beim Pyrat 1623 handelt es sich jedoch um einen richtig guten Rum!

OK I would classify this as a liqueur more than your standard rum as it sweet with a lot of orange chocolate flavours. Now at $250 per bottle it is a great "Rum" but I would not pay this amount for any liqueur. I have it now so It will be doled out in a liqueur glass not in my Glencarin spirit glasses.

For the price... I've only had the opportunity to try this rum twice. (Someone else was paying...) It is magnificent. Delightfully delicious, amazingly smooth, with the light citrus (orange) flavour we've come to love from Pyrat. The only problem is, it's insanely expensive. If it was $100 cheaper I'd have a bottle in my cupboard. But, as it is, I have to settle for Pyrat XO. A delicious compromise, but I'd rather not have to

Neat and on the rocks this is fantastic... only had it when I was out though, because of the cost my bottle sits there sealed still

This rum carries wonderful scents & overtones of many spices. However, a poorly stored bottle can be a HUGE disappointment. Apparently, it is very fragile.

With it's orange forward flavor, this rum surprises with it's unique character. Wonderful @ $125 if you can find it...

This rum is different, and therefore not for everybody. I find it rich and enjoyable, and the higher percentage of the 40-year rum really makes its mark here. It is sweeter with more orange than one might expect. Francisco Alcaraz, head distiller at Patron, has said this is aged in used orange liqueur casks. My own sleuthing efforts lead to believe that these are indeed used Grand Marnier limousine oak casks. This only makes me like it more.

Excellent taste but its just way to expensive. All I could afford was one shot, but it was worth it. I will definitely buy a bottle if I win the lottery.

Too expensive but nonetheless great rum. Smooth, sweet, and mild with a flavor that lasts.

Recently acquired this bottle for the collection. Have enjoyed the XO for a few years and wanted to bring this bottle into the family. Found for a price that I couldn't pass up, so now it waits on my shelf for some special occasion.

This is quite smooth and floral hints. One of my top 10 rums.

This was my very first top shelf rum and I think it was a great start. It gave me a new outlook on rum. Before it rum was just used as a mixer.

Awesome flavor and smooth. But too expensive to buy on my own.

Almost like a cordial. Good for sipping.

Now this is a beautiful drink. I've started many friends down the road to fine rums with just a taste of this.

Rich flavor, nice spice and orange accents and pure decadence in a glass.

I could pour it on pancakes! :-) I love rum and oranges and this is a beautiful marriage of the two!

This is a very good rum, but not worth the extreme price. For my taste, Ron Zacapa Solera 23 or Dimplomático Reserva Exclusiva is a far, far better buy in the somewhat sweet sipping rum category. If you're at a bar on the company's dime, it's worth a try, but I wouldn't spend my own money on a glass or ever buy a bottle.

I bought a bottle of this in the Bahamas when we were down for Rum Bahamas. It seems thinker and sweeter than the XO. A very good sipper, but not one of my absolute favorites for the price. A good bottle to have in an extensive collection.

So I've been avoiding trying this rum for a bit. Not because I haven't wanted to but because it seems to be a love or hate rum. Some adore it whilst others feel it tastes like bantha fodder. I am on the love scale of this rum. I love it and it goes great as a sipping rum or as a mixer with cola. It tastes phenomenal and has a very orangey taste and tang. Now that while a virtue is also this rum's downfall and why I feel its reviewed a bit lower on the scale. The orange taste is very prominent in this rum and if you are not a fan of that sweet orange flavor you may not like this rum. The orange does tend to overshadow the vanilla and the other flavor though they are there. This rum has become a personal favorite of mine though and a must have on my adventures.
