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.
Pyrat is mostly disappointing. Incredibly fruity and acidic. Not great over the rocks, undrinkable straight and very expensive as a mixer. I won't buy it again
In smell.a.lot of common with A.H. Riise,but the taste and afterburn is not so delicate and has not so mild and smooth feeling. Overall great sipping/mix rum.
This rum has a burn that is just shy of Captain Morgan. It is not overly sweet and works well as a mixer at a 50/50 ratio. It makes an acceptable gift.
I was expecting the Pyrat XO to be pretty bad after reading most of the reviews. I thought it was a decent sipper, lighter in color then what I usually have. Enjoyable for me.
Terrible rum, just terrible.
Yes you can drink it. Yes it does not taste awfull. But this is nothing like something you would expect of a "rum". I tastes like a fake orange. The smell is also extremly awkward!
I agree with many others: it has an orange flavor to it and my fist sip reminded me of Grand Marnier but with an underlying rum flavor, although I've not tasted Grand Marnier in years It's a smooth sipper and I like it. The orange was not overpowering for my taste. Would consider using it as a variation instead of other orange liquers in cocktails.
Aroma: Pomeranče se zde mísí s hutnou zemitostí a vůní kůže.
Chuť: V chuti je krásně uhlazený, extrémně jemný ( neplést s nevýrazným), dominuje pomerančový nektar, vanilka, skořice.Ta jemnost a neskutečná uhlazenost v chuti je až zarážející.
Shrnutí: Uznávám, že je to rum velmi originální, který si pravděpodobně s ničím jiným nespletete, ale mně osobně svým charakterem zas až tak neučaroval,
myslím, že by hodně potěšil jako dárek spíše naše něžnější polovičky nebo maminky a babičky. Tím nechci říct, že chlapům nebude chutnat (kolegové z něj byli hodně nadšení).Určitě doporučuji, stojí to za vyzkoušení.
Bottle : The bottle is quite nice.. It´s a cool touch with the ribbon tied to it and it has a nice shape.
Nose : The scent it pretty descent.. But there is a hint of orange already in the scent.
Taste : The taste is pretty full, but there is a strong tone of orange in it.. That kill´s it for me..
Finish : Same here.. If it wasn´t for the the awful orange tone it would have been ok.
If you like Zacapa 23 you will love this one..
Had a great experience with this rum, in a rum bar, and it became my first sipping rum.
I must confess that I have outgrown it, and just keep it for the really cool bottle - but i will give it at good 6 (1 is for the bottle).
It really smells and tastes of orange, witch i think is distinctive.
Trés interessant à decouvrir. Une belle rondeur et une approche aromatique toute en agrume.
Un rhum différent a conseiller tout particulièrement aux fans de Grand Marnier.
My expectations were high for this rum but I was surprised by the taste reminiscent of triple sec or orange liquor. Too much of it to my opinion. It is good, but it lacks the sugary flavor of cane. Nevertheless, I'm happy to have it in m'y collection shelf.
It's almost like southern comfort not very complex and not as smooth as other rums in the same price bracket. I like the bottle but wouldn't go rushing out to add it to my collection
Had this a while ago, but it should be mixed with cola or other mixes as I found it to be fairly rough around the edges, so-to-speak.
Tastes like it is perfect for pirates to keep away scurvy. Little harsh but I have always had a bottle on hand since 8 years ago. Can be used as a good mixer if you want to add a little orangey rum flavor.
