Pyrat XO Reserve rum

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 was really wanting to like this rum but I cant recommend it as a sipper , its too sharp and has a real alcohol bite to it. On a positive note , I dont find the " hand cleaner " smell or the " overpowering smell of oranges " that people keep on about . Has a real short finish and only as a mixer for me , probably wont buy again.

This rum is sold at almost a top shelf price. You are clearly paying for the fancy bottle because the rum inside is not great. In my opinion it had a rubbing alcohol smell and taste.

Fruity with nice notes of apricot and a little vanilla. Great in Mai Tai’s.

...label is not the only thing beeing orange on this rum. When I had the pyrat XO for the first time it felt like having an orange in my mouth. Actually not what I do expect of a non spiced or flavored rum😉

Very nice rum, well priced and kept in freezer for sipping.

Too sweet, too much citrus, a weird synthetic chemical taste.
I read the review from Chris who said that it needs time, but if I pour a glass, I want to drink it. I don't want to leave it sitting for 2 hours whilst it settles down. Maybe when I go on holiday, I'll get a shot of it and let it sit for a bit, but I can't imagine I would ever go out and buy a bottle.

In summary, if you want a nice sweet rum with more than a little character, don't get this, get a Diplomatice Reserva Exclusiva.

I waited a long time to try this. But. This didn't really taste like rum, to me. An artificial orangey flavor lay beneath an astringent-style alcohol-taste that lacked any real character that appealed to my palate, but to each his/her own. Drink what you like, of course, but I'm passing on this, if I ever see it again. Sorry.

Tohle mi doporucili v obchode, kdyz dosel Don Papa. Prodavajici byl asi novacek a nebo jeden (ci oba) z techto rumu neochutnal! Ostrejsi rum, koreni - skorice, kardamon, vanilka.

Po napiti se rozvine ovocna, hlavne pomeranxova chut v prvni chvili ostřejší a korenena. Ale potom se zjemni a zesladne.

Not bad, not good. Tried this one and it is not my favourite.

This is an ok sipping rum, but a great rum and coke rum.
