Pyrat XO Reserve

Anguilla | Gold

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 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).

If you tend a bit towards the sweeter side, but reject things like Zaya or Ron Zacapa, Pyrat XO is for you. It's sweet, but only a bit. What's more striking are the strong vanilla and somewhat less intense orange flavors. Both make for an enjoyable sipping rum.

Orange. It smells orange, taste orange... Very provocative and cocky. I can't say I enjoyed it as it was difficult to empty the glass, but it's kind of interesting still. I wouldn't buy a whole bottle, even for the shock value when having a rum loving friend over, but I'm glad I tasted it. Sadly I don't remember any other flavors then orange since this dominated both nose and palate.
Did I mention orange?

Not of my liking. For me it is just an awful spicy orange rum. Not very well balanced.

The orange taste is to predominant and artificial in my opinion, I was expecting much more from this one.

It beats the bottom shelf swill out there by a couple of points, but the money is better spent elsewhere. You're paying for the packaging.

This is rum made by a tequila company, and it comes out like cognac... I don't understand, and unfortunately don't enjoy it. This smells, tastes, and behaves almost exactly like Grand Marnier, but with less sugar and more alcohol bite. I'm alternating between 4 and 5 on this.

It has been said many times already. This tastes like orange. So much so, I simply cannot believe it wasn't artificially added afterwards. Seeing as it's rum we are talking about - and everything is allowed in the world of rum - that's not at all unthinkable. So, if you like Grand Marnier you'll like this rum, but you are probably better off drinking Grand Marnier.

Smagen er sprittet med alt alt for meget appelsin. Eftersmagen er kedelig og kun appelsin.
