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.
For a blended spirit, I find this one to be very tasty, somewhat sweet and with a nice aroma of oranges.
The best tasting rum I’ve ever tried, color is the hue of sweet molasses;bottle is the shape of real pirate bottles. Perfect for sipping or cocktails.
Not a fan it’s not terrible but does not stand up to others in its class
This Rum is one of my favorites so far with the nose to the taste. It does require time to breathe upon opening or it comes across with a cleaner smell. Once it opens up you pick up citrus, vanilla, and spice notes. The taste to me is buttery feeling with citrus, molasses, vanilla, I’ve had pricier Rums but I prefer this as my go to. The taste does match the smell, it’s a nice Rum for me, sweet, decent legs, smells like Christmas sweets.
Pyrat X.O. Reserve je osobitý rum míchaný z velmi dobrých vyzrálých rumů s těžkým a sladkým aroma, které zrají v sudech 15 let. Chutná po vanilce, marcipánu, sladkém koření a přezrálém ovoci. Dezertní rum s dlouhým koncem. Pro zrání se používají sudy, které dříve obsahovaly pomerančový likér Citrónge, obohacující finální produkt chutí pomerančů.
Not worth the price, but a nice cheap box for packaging.
Tenhle rum jsem dostal na návštěvě u kamaráda a říkám, že jde o naprostý průměr, který neurazí, ani nenadchne. Není ani příliš výrazný, ani příliš nevýrazný. Vlastně by se dali s trochou nadsázky říct, že jde o typický rum. Hezky voní. Ale protože vím, že pro jedno kvítí slunce nesvítí, tak mu dám určitě ještě šanci. Uvidíme, třeba se odleží
Pyrat is way down in the pack. It’s an ok rum. It just doesn’t jump up and grab your taste buds and scream, “I’m Great!!” But... it’s probably one you need to try, so as to know the difference when you do taste a really great rum.
Very distinctive flavor. Should be sipped in the beach
I like sweet rhums, but this one is too sweet for me.
Neurazí, ale není rumem, který bych potřeboval mít doma, když si chci rum vychutnat. Občas je v chuti cítit až moc lihově.
Tento rum je vhodný pre milovníkov až dezertnych záležitosti. Naozaj totálna nálož citrusov. Pre mňa príliš sladký, občas mi už včera skôr pripomína pomarančový likér Cointreau s kockou marcipánu v chvostiku. Pre ženy,ktorým nechutia suchšie rumy asi vhodná voľba.
Nice but nothing special. Very light, maybe too light as I found not much in the body department!
Forna gold rum it is good. Pretty smooth. I wouldn't turn it down if offered!
My very first meet with this Bottle was “just wow”. After 2 years i tried it again but that was like “what????” I wanted more. Good.
Don't get me wrong - its not a terrible sipping choice. I find the taste little too plain, bit simple and heavily overwhelmed with citrus accents. Letting it breathe helps.
too overrated. Too alcoholic, too simple, too young. I couldn't find any proper information about it's real age, to my guess, 4/5 of the spirits were maximum 3-4 years. So, I wouldn't recommend anyone to buy it.
They missed the mark with this one. Pretty heavy on the Citrus, but too oily to be balanced within its realm. More syrup than flavor. It has been incorporated into a few of my tiki cocktails, but with a balancing force, such as a young white rum. In this way it can be useful, but as a sipper its not for me.
An engineered rum, a good rum to start to get to know the rum world
I got this from a friend as a Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva lover, that this would be perfect for me. But something was wrong. Swet but maybe too spicy... Did not work out for me...
There is nothing XO in this product... Like a 5 years old rum, nothing special in it.
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
