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.

Strange rum not like most, you feel very strong orange taste but not nice orange taste something like artificial and overall a mess with little sweetnes.

I've read a lot of reviews about this rum and finally decided to try it. It has a nice aroma, and a decent flavor, but there is a little too much orange. It can be a sipper or mixed, but if you sip I hope you like Grand Marnier.

Even though it has a very nice bottle, it is not an extraordinary thing in my opinion. Maybe he is good with a coke, but I'm glad I tried only one glass instead of buying the whole bottle. Pyrat has a very aggressive taste with difficult to specify tones, which seems chemical. It may be worth trying, but rather prefer something else in this segment.

je ne suis pas convaincu, je n'aime pas du tout le whisky et ce rhum s'en rapproche trop, il sent le whisky et a un arrière goût de whisky très prononcé, j'ai eu du mal.

Really a great solera Rhum!
The density is medium-high, typical from melassa of sugar cane.
The smell is well balaced from the sweet and the alcool, first zip is really great, sweet, vanilla, wood and caramel, but after few second become smooth and you get the expeted alcool effect. Stay in the mouth for longer pleasure.
Price/ Quality 9 stars

Raw at first. Develops nicely if left to air for several minutes after the pour. Prominent notes of orange & vanilla. Good value at +/- $25.

Not a good rum, very harsh and taste like gas. I might choose it over Barcardi as a mixer, but barely.

I read a lot of positive reviews , but I am so disappointed with this rum
The best part of this liquid is bottle. very nice.
Smell and flavour are the same....ethanol + orange, very artificial ... spirit is so sharp.

Many rums over-index on certain undertones... molasses, oak, etc. This rum over-indexes on the orange peel taste, but it's not bad, it's different. I appreciate variety, so I appreciate having this bottle in my rum cabinet. There is also a hint of vanilla. This is a nice rum to pull out when you need to reset your palate before a finer endeavor.
