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.
I hate to be insulting, because truthfully if it makes you happy, who am I to say it's bad. But to me, the false additive flavors of every Pyrat product insults the beauty and good name of Rum.
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.
It has a caramel finish and is smooth but has multiple odd things about it. Including the caramel finish
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.
Tried it neat. Good sipping rum. Enjoyable complexity, with a fair amount of sweetness.
Exceptionally smooth! Great finish. This rum is best drunk straight!
Sip it straight up! Great finish. Pyrat is a great rum to add to your collection. When drank straight up it has a smooth pleasurable taste. Light sweet warm spice flavor, great aroma and a very unique bottle. I highly recommend this my favorite rum.

Un Grand Marnier avec un petit gout de rhum...
Pourquoi pas le déguster comme un Schrubb, avec des glaçons
Que ce soit à l'odeur ou au gout, j'ai l'impression de boire du grand marnier.
Ce rhum sent beaucoup trop fort l'orange. A essayer peut être en mix, mais pur ça ne passe pas !
Strong taste with a touch of orange. I didn't care for it with coke, but by itself and on the rocks wasn't too bad at all.
Pyrat is a tasty rum, much lighter in both color and body than I normally go for. The flavor has a spicy orange note I quite like, and wouldn't mind in mixed in with Coke or soda water. The aroma, on the other hand, reminded me of paint thinner. However, once you get past the door the rum itself is quite nice...
Not a bad sipping rum with an expected complexity. I keep this one on my top shelf.
Good taste a lot of orange and citrus. Long after taste
Pale caramel color, great nose. Says it's up to 15 yes old but doesn't taste that aged.
Taste as a Grand mariner liqour
Honey and orange flavour. Subtil et licoreux. Its taste is like no other
Like no other nice light almost orange color. Pleasant citrus scent. Unique flavors hints of citrus very smooth.
This is one of my favorites. They serve this on Royal Caribbean cruise. It was nice peachy taste and stands up from rest.
This fruity rum is quite drinkable. Probably with sugar, probably full of marketing but the presentation is top notch, the taste bears caramel, vanilla, fruit, citrus... I like it.
To much orange taste! It's too unilateral. The old version Planters Gold XO (picture) was much better his taste more complex. Perhaps they've lost their Masterblender while the Anguilla Rum Company was bought by the Patrón Spirits Company.
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.
Good to start with when discovering the world of rums, it´s smooth and fruity, or rather orangey, and in the middle range to me.
Too sweet , to much orange ! But i recon the Ladies Would like it !
