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.
Tasty, but not quite great
Enjoyed it a lot, the bottle creates of course big expectations, but i was not let down. You get to drink like a true Pirate, looks great on your Rum shelve and has a pleasant taste, althouhg i must agree it does not smell so great : )))
After opening the bottle I sniffed the corked and it smelled odd. I poured a little in a glass and sniffed again - worse! Then I tasted - I thought it was corked!! I took it back to the place of purchase and was told that that was the way it was suppose to smell and taste. No more Pyrat for me.
This rum tastes smoothly and maybe this blend is fine, but rum flavor is beaten with orange. Taste is a little bit sweet, but orange is dominating...
I liked the aroma when I opened the first bottle. But the taste let me down. It's fine as a mixer but there are rums just as good for half the price to drown in pineapple and gauva juice.
"Had wine not been the drink of choice 2,000 or so years ago, Jesus would have probably turned every drop of water on earth into Pyrat Rum XO Reserve"
