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.
really good rum smell a bit harsh but mixes great and its smooth to drink straight
I drink Bacardi rocks w/ watered down limeaid, just found this at Christmas, brown but not spiced, smelled harsh, took a slow shot expecting throat burn and afterbite, aroma is very deceiving, this rum is smooth, very sippable, no afterburn, bacardi bathtub rum is fine as a mixer, this rum stands on it's own and I will gladly return for more, NJ pinelands rule !!!
Had it for the first time, it was very different, very very smooth. ! no complaints.
Excelente. Increíble sensación aroma gusto. Para tomar solo
Very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very and very good rum
This one I like the most, smooth, sweet, full of taste. Amazing rum, hope to find a similar one.
This rum is so smooth and sweet I can't belive it's normal proof. Honestly tastes like drinking pirate heaven
Very nice on the rocks
Great sipping when drinking beer
Be ready to get the buzz on
Goes down smooth wether shooting or on ice. Never mixed it personally, the taste is good enough to drink straight slowly.
Smooth, sweet and a refreshing taste...perfect rum at a good price
This rum is very special. It amazed me because I never thought anything of it. I was introduced to it by Pedro the bar tender at a Montreal high end restaurant and since that moment we became instant comerads. So love because it brought me to meet someone from the brotherhood!
Color and taste IS so good. We tried at home. Ooooooooo
A great sipping rum or with a splash of rootbeer. Great flavor and a nice quiet spice flavor, not overbearing.
I'm surprised at the variety of options on this one - maybe it's the marmite of the rum world!
To me it's one of my favourites; nice and smooth followed by a gentle warmth...love it neat
Pyrat XO is the most favourite rum of mine. Love the sweet taste!
It's just a really good rum and it is my gold standard for a "mixing rum." Ice cold, with Coke, or in a mixed drink this rum works with anything, incorporates very well and accents its flavors when mixed. That's why it gets a 9. I keep my bottle in the freezer...its my go-to mixing rum.
I can't believe all the negative reviews. No, its not for most to drink on the rocks and drinking it neat is not going to work at all. This is NOT a sipper... But, this rum is the taste of the Caribbean in a bottle. It balances to the sweeter molasses and citrus/orange side of the spectrum but its still got a lot of bite to it. Spice is not the centerpiece of this rum. But, it is a fantastic alternative to all the spicier or flavorless aged mixing rums out there.
Dominant orange bouquet, but not a "spiced" rum. A before-meal favorite.
Very smooth, and as others have said, has a taste of orange and vanilla. For the price point, I really like this rum.
Very very good taste, almost buttery on the tongue, but has a little bit of a bite to it. If it was a little smoother this could be my favorite.
Edit: After drinking this for awhile now it has become my favorite sipping rum. It has just such a good flavor and no after taste.
I bought this rum on my trip to curaçao, didnt know what to expect, and was really suprised. It is a very soft tasting rum, but so good..
A single shot tasted in Majorca airport had me hooked.
Smooth and cheap this has become my go to rum for regular nights
I first sampled Pyrat while on a cruise which stopped at St Thomas. The taste was an eye-opener because up to that moment I had not found an aged rum which maintained the sugar and molasses notes found in any good rum. Prat has become a regular in my liquor cabinet.
When I think of a nice rum to serve straight up, it has to be Pyrat XO. Hands Down the finest sipper to date. Why the NLC is no longer offering this fine spirit must come down to price.
