Back in 2005, I was mostly a Cognac guy with the occasional ultra premium Tequila and Scotch added for some variety. I was offered this particular rum by a bartender at Cuba Libre near Downtown Dallas to try. It was certainly better than any rum I had ever tried! But I was use to the typical Bacardi, Captain Morgans of the world. It is for all purposes, a nice starter rum if that is all available at the bar. It is sippable , but has bite. Not very complex. I actually believe it makes a nice mixer if anything.

You either love it or hate it. It doesn't have a hint of orange its an orange rum! Personally I like the difference

strong aromas and flavours of orange and very smooth. A great alternative rum when you don't want the heavier flavours of the darker rums.

This is one of the rums that many try when discovering the world of rums, it´s smooth and fruity, or rather orangey, and there´s a full 24g/l of sugar added to the bottle. Unfortunately. Because this may make some think that rum is sweet all by itself (since it`s made from sugarcane) which is not true since there´s no sugar in it after distillation. If there´s any it has been added after. This rum is way too sweet.

A decent rum but with far too heavy orange notes to my tastes.


Posted 7 years ago by Hrpalle from Denmark with 19 ratings

It's just fluid orange on 40%
This is not a rum for me. The lack of other things in the taste, makes it a never to own rum.

I have to say this rum receives nowhere near the credit it demands. This rum comes at you with multiple flavors first vanilla, then a nice long citrus ride in the middle, and then a lightly wooded cinnamon finish. I enjoyed this rum neat one shot at a time, but let it breath after opening. Overall excellent, I drank a whole one last night and awoke early the next morning feeling 100% no hangover! This is what I would expect from the makers of patron!

I find this rum to be lighter tasting than most rums. Smooth and interesting enough to warrant buying again, but a bit too expensive for regular purchase. I recommend this one for non-rum people buying a rum for mixed drinks that aren't cola based, as the "rum" flavor isn't overly pronounced. Great bottle and packaging, nice to see companies put the effort into packaging without going over the top (ahem, vodka manufacturers).

Pyrat is a good not great rum. It has an interesting flavor. I've experienced it best with cola. It is not a good value.
