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).
Inconsistent review on web and a traditional bottle which I feel like a true rum shall look like.
In the end the bottle was the reason I tried this rum. Unfortunately orange smell and flavour doesn't save alcoholic body.
Not on my recommendation list
If the bottle’s decorative embellishments weren't laughably insulting enough, this rum's crappy, gimmicky flavor should push you away forever. Also, when I lift the glass to my face it smells like something stuck to the bottom of a shoe. This rum's flavor is so overpoweringly vanilla, sugary sweet and gimmfuckicky, that I will never buy it again. Ever. This rum is foul. It has no soul. It truly sucks shit. It really does suck shit. It sucks. Shit. Expected more. Wow.
At first look at the bottle you can already tell that they take the rum seriously. Fantastic presentation in color and bottle. The flavor is sweet and delightful. A good dessert rum. There is a undertone of apricot and vanilla combined. Can be served as a shot or on the rocks
Keep seeing 1-5 cup ratings. People have no clue. You don’t just pop open a bottle and chug it down. Open it and let it breathe people.
...This is a bit over my expectation. The merchendise what comes with it are cool and I use it as a key-chain but unfortunately this is the best part of Pyrat XO. I met this rum when a lady came in and recognised the bottle as her favorite sipping rum with her friends, and I took this as a recomendation so I tried it. But I was wrong. Off balance, flavors are less outstanding than wanted...
Trully a vanilla bomb!
