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.
This was my second rum, after Don Papa. I like it’s similar taste profile, however it’s not artificial like the Don Papa feels to me now that I’ve experienced finer rums.
Pyrat has notes of vanilla and caramel and some oak, but is still a far cry from dry rums. The profile is vey drinkable and I am looking forward to another bottle soon.
I cannot understand all the hate. While i readily agree that the main selling point of this product, is the bottle design, presentation and marketing overall, it is still quite decent. Also yes, it is expensive, certainly not one of those under the category "you get what you pay for". But this is by no means a terrible rum, as many make it out to be. It was my standard, for some time. I really liked it, due to a rich and complex taste and its outstanding aroma. I am not an expert like others, but it was nowhere near regreattable getting it, at least in my books. I even gifted one for a special occasion, to an important person for me and it makes out a nice gift overall, as well. I also outgrew it, because the newer spiced rums won me entirely, but this specific product still holds a special place, in my rum lover's heart.
