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
While this isn't the best rum I've ever had, it is good enough to drink straight up. So much of this is personal opinion that it's hard to truly rate something that everyone will agree on.
I read another review where the writer commented that it just needed some breathing time and then it was very good. That may be the case, what I’ve always had has been very consistent. Not “great or exceptional” but definitely above average.
Not wanting to use my Zacapa for mixing or experiments, I found the Pyrat XO a cheaper alternative with a lot of the same taste notes and positive connotations. I have kept a bottle at home since I found the rum, and enjoy its effects on my cocktail experiments.
And I love it. A lot of orange and some cake. It reminds me of "papa au rhum". I'd love to compare it with the old Pyrat bottle! Unfortunately very hard to find for a reasonable Price.
Great history of Hoti. A nice bottle with a medium color. Tastes a bit sweet, although, the taste isn't that various and doesn't stay so long in a mouth. Price equals quality.
"Had wine not been the drink of choice 2,000 or so years ago, Jesus would have probably turned every drop of water on earth into Pyrat Rum XO Reserve"
