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 enjoy this rum as I do many...not a standout for me, though
I felt this one was a bit too fake orange tasting for me. That's not to say it didn't mix well with coke, but not good enough to drink straight.
Le pire rhum vieux que j'ai jamais eu l'occasion de goûter, non pas qu'il soit agressif ou qu'il brûle la langue mais son "fumet" m'a clairement rebuté. Un nez évoquant le fumier plus que désagréable, je ne pensais pas que l'on puisse élaborer liqueur si imbuvable.
J'aurais bien deux mots à dire au maître de chais.
Yes it does come off with an orange taste, but I still like to sip this with ice or even just some frozen soap stones rocks. My friends have come over and tried it and it's changed their minds about Rums.
This one is really nice and has some orange taste! Is really good on the rocks.
Not a bad rum but nowhere as smooth as others. I like it best mixed with tonic and a lime. Good flavor similar to Mount Gay Eclipse but with a bit more orange taste to it. On the rocks it has a bit of a burn but is tolerable. Definitely not in the same league as Plantation Barbados 5 Rum.
I hate to be insulting, because truthfully if it makes you happy, who am I to say it's bad. But to me, the false additive flavors of every Pyrat product insults the beauty and good name of Rum.
Love this rum, definitely my favorite everyday drinker. Lover the sweetness, floral and smooth taste. The spice and orange undertones taste amazing as well. Who wouldn't love this interesting flavor?
this is a nice rum to soak the raisins to make a apple Pie
Only gave this a 6 because the flavor has changed over the years. I used to love this stuff when my bottle with only 5 digits starting with a 5 in the batch number was still around. But now all the higher 7 plus digit batch numbers have a strong orange flavor I'm not liking as much. Its a shame too because I think this will chase people away from a nice rum.
Not what I look for in a sipping rum, but wont turn it down.
I am not a big fan of the pyrat's but they do have there place
Le goût d'orange n'est pas désagréable. Intéressant même...
Everything you hear about this rum is true, unfortunately. A rich, deep flavoured, beautifully presented, orange liqueur. Definitely not a rum though.
The Gentleman Stumbler blog has a really funny review of this rum. It's so ubiquitous I bought a bottle just to see for myself, and sorta regret it. Probably best with cola, but I don't drink cola, except maybe organic cola from Trader Joe's! But I appreciate the Hoti mystique, and the flash website is really cool.
Very sweet, lot of orange --> liqueur ?
I'm a fan of Pyrat XO. I am looker forward to adding a bottle of the more expensive Cash 1623 to my collection. So many rums, so little time... and money. Pyrat XO is a great everyday sipper. It is not too expensive and is usually on the shelf at the PA stores.
Rich taste. Nice rum.
I drink this on the rocks, with some tropical juices and sometimes just neat with a splash of water.
Not undrinkable orange rum liqueur, but the lingering artificial aftertaste puts me off. For a similar rum that is miles better try Clement Creole Shrubb.
A bit coarse
