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
Not the best, but I enjoyed it. Strong orange character, almost like a triple sec without the sweetness. Some burn going down, but for 20-ish bucks, not unexpected.
Viele meinen ja es sei zu herb und orange zuviel aber gerade das macht es spannend... Mit ner Orangen Scheibe und an heißen Tagen auf Eis. Klinkt verrückt. Kann aber ausprobiert werden. .
Finer tasting notes? I don't know and wont even bother with this blend of various rums. It's all about the marketing and the boys at Pyrat have done well. I like to use Pyrat as a mixer or floater and it does that job very well, thank you. A sipper with a fine cigar? I don't really agree with that; you can talk to one of those guys who rate this a "10".
I got this rum as a present and it was literally hidden in a book. Great packaging I still use to hide a bottle in my office. Now to the rum itself. It definitely has a not so subtle orange vanilla flavour. It is probably too sweet for experienced rum fanatics but great if you are new to rum. As a versatile rum it's also great to use in punch and tiki cocktails.
