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
This rum will never have a problem being on the shelf. I got this because the guy at the store said I'm out of el dorado so try this one. That's the last time I will ever listen to an idiot salesman. He made his sale & I hated not only him but myself. You pirates out there should already know, Steer a Wide Berth!
Beautiful sipper. Slightly smokey with orange notes. Fruitier than my normal favorites but def a top hitter. Lovely lingering aftertaste! I'll try the Pyrat cask next time
Nie je to zlý rum, ale vôňa pomaranča je príliš silná a posúva ďalej od hranice vyváženosti. Chuť je pomerne sladká, na konci cítiť alkohol. Na začiatok dobrá voľba.
Saw this at the local Getränketmarkt - remember seeing it getting a lot of comments, thought it was supposed to be one of the better ones. Wrong. Epic Fail. This is rough & nasty one-dimensional rum with too much orange flavour (never something I enjoyed outside of actual oranges !) and precious little else. I'll use it for cocktails where it can be buried, but I won't bother sipping it again.
Aroma: lemon zest, caramel and oak notes, some nostalgic "Dzintars" fragrance produced in Soviet Union times :) ,taste: when poured in glass right after opening the taste is very sharp. After giving time to grasp some air, it becomes quite smooth and some sharpness remains at finish with. A lot of lemon flavor, which I usually do not like here is a with a bit different note and balances out well with sweetness and is really enjoyable.
the bottle and medallion are about the best things about this rum. forced flavour of orange or orange peel. not my cup of rum. wont recommend this to anyone. t
plenty of solid rum out there with a comparable price. i was left disappointed after i drank this.
Bought it on a business trip in Czech republic in a liquor store for 29 €. It has nice smell. Taste is pleasant in my opinion. Comes in cardboard box, but is shame since it hides nice bottle design. You also get little cast metal plate with monk on it. I think i will have another one 😎.
