Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Pyrat XO Rum is produced from nine different Caribbean rums that are blended and then aged up to 15 years in used American sweet oak barrels.
The squat Pyrat XO rum bottle shape is inspired by the typical design of rum bottles kept by pirates and ship captains in the 19th century.
I couldn't sit and sip this which was a shame - it had a very artificial orangey flavour to it and too much of a burn for my liking, it was enjoyed as a mixer however hence the 5. On the plus side the bottle/packaging looked great.
I went into this one with high expectations. After all they use the same bottle as amazing Rum & Cane, but I had to curse the day I even thought they would fit in the same category.
When opening the bottle and having the first sniff it feels like a mix of industrial cleanser with a lot of sugar to keep it mild. After a moment in the glass it started developing some cleaner, more natural features, but even after 30 minutes in the glass it still remains a weak rum
Orange flavour with strong taste of cheap alcool. So with a 3 I am generous.
Sweet taste and full of orange but it need a time before drink
This is a cheap rum dressed up. Nit sure on the intent, but should be limited to mixed drinks..
I was able to pick this up on sale and I was extremely happy with my purchase. It’s a strong flavored rum witch was great for making mai tails and other cocktails.
No longer called a rum, it is akin to Cointreau in taste - except cointreau beats it 10 - 0 in taste. Cheap spiced alcohol.
I like this bottle, it is nice rum with orange flavour, not so sweet.Cool rum !
Ich hätte mir von einem XO mehr erwartet. Er ist zwar mild, wie man es von einem XO erwartet, aber der Abgang ist mir nicht intensiv genug. Als Schulnote vergebe ich eine 2,5.
Po nalití do sklenice jsem přičichl a cítil jen štiplavou vůni alkoholu, stejně alkoholický byl i první doušek. Když se Pyrát nechá odpočinout, tak začne příjemně vonět i chutnat. Hodnocení lehce sráží značka, celkově na mě ta láhev i značka působí lehce prvoplánově a lacině, spíž než cíl pojďme dělat dobrý rum, pojďme dělat něco co se bude dobře prodávat.
I Like Him, Take the orange flavor of a Grande Manier, and Mix it with the spice of a Rum.
Good rum, enjoyed drinking it but nothing spectacular. But I would not hesitate to buy it again.
Superb rum that is delivered in a nice case and nice gimmics
By accident tried it chilled. It's like another rum. No spirit taste, just smooth orange. It must be drinked only with ice cubes
First tasted this rum at Trader Sams at the Disneyland hotel it was mixed with their house juice and it had a great taste.
V tomhle případě platí, že obal je lepší než vnitřek.
Jako rum by tak špatný nebyl, kdyby tam nebylo tolik pomeranče. Ten to všechno pokazil.
Even every day :) was added to my favorites. Nice bottle, the medal is funny.
Cracked the bottle, took a sip and man... this is not good. Waited a minute and took another sip... actually, this is damn good!
Amber color in the glass belies orange on the nose, followed by more orange on the tongue, with complex citrus notes rolling over the tongue. Finish is surprisingly dry. The package is extravagant, blown glass decanter with a Pyrat medal. Unique but not my favorite.
This was of my first rums on June 18, 2018. Will need to try again.
A little too much orange & much better as a mixer than straight up or on the rocks. Great bottle though! Not the best, but far from the worst...
I really wanted to like this one. Too orangy and sweet, tastes great with a wee bit of coke though.
With all the little medals and orange ribbons I have, it's obvious that Pyrat one is one of my Favs. Made in the "French Style" , to me this is a sipper. If you absolutely have to fizz just a splash of ginger ale or seltzer, no lime or cola. Mouth feel and texture is very similar to VS cognac as is the flavor. Well balanced with little burn or sickly flavors the only thing I have against it is the bottle shape. I would hate to bartend with it. Luckily it comes in a .375.
I'm really disappointed, maybe even pissed, because the actual rum behind the wall of added flavour must be great. Too bad someone dropped a whole bag of vanilla and orange peel in the batch. Even after a while in the snifter is the predominant scent and taste. Even in another glass it won't go away. If you really like those two just go for it. I'll wait to hear that they changed their mind and maybe discovered that they have a pretty good rum that doesn't need any additional flavours.
