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.
Tasty, but not quite great
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).
I thought this was a smooth rum and after trying this encouraged me to try others.
Really smart bottle too!
Now I'm a bit more experienced, I paid too much on Amazon for this
Good Aged Flavor, Nice Citrus Overtones, Good Value on Sale. Picked this upon sale. Usually good packaging is a sign of not great beverage, I was wrong. Not quite as good as my “9” rums or the RL Seale brands but a good sipping rum. Don Q Bran Anejo goes back in the pantry for special occasions.
This is an adulterated alcohol product. Other than (possibly) cane sugar being the source of fermentation, it should not be considered rum.
One thing you must admit, even if you dont like this rum is its marketing. Badge with a saint guy and beautiful bottle with number. Who would think this will make such a good combo and bring a lot of fame for Pyrat.
After you open your bottle of Pyrat for first time, you will smell oranges. Its very strong smell, and obviously they add some flavour inside it to make it even more intense. Give it some time, this smell will go away after few months (if your Pyrat will survive that long).
Taste is very smooth and nice. It is pretty sweet but not too much like Legendario 7yo or something like that. In its price category, Pyrat is one of the best rums you can find.
This is almost like orange and apricot liqueur. It's not completely bad and need's some time.
Had this stuff couple bottles and kind of liked that apricot taste.
I recommend to used on drinks. This ain't a sipping rhum.
This is a simple yet smooth and delicious rum. Vanilla and orange notes round out a delicate finish. Bottom line, this is one of the best rims for 30 bucks on the market.
