Best rum ever. Soooo smooth. No burning. Special unique tastes. Hard to describe maybe a hint of fruity?
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
Appearance: Amber, transparent
Aroma: Orange oil, caramel
Flavor: golden caramel, orange oil, vanilla
Finish: long, sweet, sugar cane, vanilla
This is pure cane nectar from a god. so amazing. Great on a patio at Night and de stress
This rum carries wonderful scents & overtones of many spices. However, a poorly stored bottle can be a HUGE disappointment. Apparently, it is very fragile.
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.
From the solid wood walnut case, to the hand blown bottle that contains this precious spirit, everything about this rum in wonderful.
While not your traditional rum flavor, maybe leaning more towards a fine cognac or liqueur. Pyrat Cask 1623 has a beautiful bronze syrupy color, with a remarkable candied orange and apricot scent, finishing with a smooth butterscotch flavor.
With it's orange forward flavor, this rum surprises with it's unique character. Wonderful @ $125 if you can find it...
So smooth, the best sipping rum I have ever tasted. Sad when the bottle was gone. Only wish I could afford it more often.
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.
The pricing is somewhat prohibitive, but if you have the opportunity to drink this rum, you are doing yourself a favor. This is the smoothest, honest, uncompromising rum Inhave ever had. It is not a part of my collection at home, but I'm considering make the investment. Simply put, fantastic! The taste lingers on the back end to be savored slowly.
Too expensive but nonetheless great rum. Smooth, sweet, and mild with a flavor that lasts.
If you're into rum this is a must try. I like it ice cold, out of the freezer. This is one of the most complex and enjoyable rums I've ever tried. The only bad news is it goes down too smooth and makes its drinker prone to a hang over...
I like this rum with cigars. It is smooth, sweet and I really enjoy the finish.
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.
Awesome flavor and smooth. But too expensive to buy on my own.
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.
I did a blind taste test between this and the Pyrat XO, neither of which I had tried before. One smelled like an orange rum, the other like an orange liquor. This was the orange liquor. This was a little smoother than the XO, but I prefer the taste of the XO. Not much more to describe about the smell and taste other than a sweet orange liquor. A bit too orangey sweet for my liking. It's not bad, but the taste doesn't justify the price.
If you like orange liquor, I think the Clement Creole Shrubb is a far better choice.
This is a good enough rum. Little bit overpriced but in a great and nice bottle that looks great in the cabinet
I spend a great evening sipping this. Heavy on oranges and a little sweet but fantatic.
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.
