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.

Read all to good and bad reviews
on this needed to see for myself
didn’t care for it straight but did open
with a little ice really get the orange
in this one but more of a fake orange
still not bad not worth 30 dollars

I find this ok, but not worth all the hype. If you want orange, I can think of better rums and drinks; if you want rum, there are way better rums. It's ok, but if I wanted something orange, I think Rumbullion is much more interesting.

Excellent to drink over ice. Pleasant yet flavourful, easy to enjoy over dinner.

Smell and taste like an orange infused rum liquor, not so sweet like others. Good with ice for aperitif, nice mixer for summer days.

Ikke særlig god rom - for meget appelsin smag. God til en lage

Not fond of too tasty rums but this one is a crap .

I'd heard the buzz, and was eager to give it a try for myself.

On first pour, I hardly picked up any citrus notes (it had been store in the fridge). It was rather harsh, slightly bitter, but really not that bad. As it warmed, the citrus came out in full force. But it wasn't terrible, and not exactly what I'd call "artificial," either. It just smells like mid-range rum with some orange (maybe with a touch of lemon) essential oil added in, and some sugar. Maybe it's soaked with citrus rind at some point (hence the bitterness), maybe it's artificial flavoring, who knows.

At the end of the day, this is far from the worst rum out there—it's really not that bad. As a sipper, it's not very good, but as a mixer I think it would be fantastic (if overpriced). Daiquiris, Mai Tais (along with a good, strong Jamaican), Nui Nuis all could be made deliciously with this stuff.

That said, there are plenty of better rums out there.
