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.
I hate to be insulting, because truthfully if it makes you happy, who am I to say it's bad. But to me, the false additive flavors of every Pyrat product insults the beauty and good name of Rum.
The factory have never exist There were never made Rum on this little cayman before, but it is a good (promotion) story.
A little tast of the famos uneatable orange peel from Curacau. Some dont understand it and therefore dont like it. I Doo
If i want an orange liquor, i would not buy a bottle of rum.
If i want a vanilla liquor, i would not buy a bottle of rum.
So why should i buy these?
One star for nice bottle with its lanyard and the tag.
Great caramel color, zesty orange flavor, let it breathe for about 15 minutes and add to apple juice over ice. Sit back, relax and enjoy... repeat as necessary!
Vanilla and orange is quite overpowering, not what I expected at all, better mixed with fruit juice than a sipping rum
Wow that's a lot of orange! Underneath there is a good rum, but it's covered by the dominating citrus. If you use it as a liqueur/mixer, it is pretty good though.
So this sat for months and the orange has mellowed quite a bit

Are you sure that it is a rum ?!? ... seems blended with Grand Marnier. Too much orange flavour. Advised just if you like the "pirate bottle"
If I wanted an orange liqueur I would have bought a bottle of Cointreau. As rum goes, this is masquerading as something it isn't. It's not rum as I would recognise it, so get's a rating of 1. As a spirit, it isn't that bad, it just that I can't consider a rum to taste of oranges.
Interesting taste heavily influenced by strong flavors of orange. I found it was more like a liqueur and not so much of a great rum. I'm sure you could find a fancy drink it would stand out in as an ingredient but avoid for a rum and coke or a traditional glass of rum on ice - you'll be disappointed.
Le pire rhum vieux que j'ai jamais eu l'occasion de goûter, non pas qu'il soit agressif ou qu'il brûle la langue mais son "fumet" m'a clairement rebuté. Un nez évoquant le fumier plus que désagréable, je ne pensais pas que l'on puisse élaborer liqueur si imbuvable.
J'aurais bien deux mots à dire au maître de chais.
I'm a fan of Pyrat XO. I am looker forward to adding a bottle of the more expensive Cash 1623 to my collection. So many rums, so little time... and money. Pyrat XO is a great everyday sipper. It is not too expensive and is usually on the shelf at the PA stores.
Not undrinkable orange rum liqueur, but the lingering artificial aftertaste puts me off. For a similar rum that is miles better try Clement Creole Shrubb.
Lækker blød og afrundet Rom men let sødme hænger flot i glasset
Price is quite low for XO, smell alcohol and taste gives too much of an orange.
Nice flavor in a mixed drink, but not on my list for sipping.
Nepřekvapují mě rozporuplná hodnocení. Tenhle rum je velmi zvláštní. Až moc pronikavá vůně i chuť citrusů. Až po čase (a několika panácích) jsem mu začal rozumět. Zkuste mu dát šanci.
Cheap rum for citrus lovers. Aroma full of orange and is difficult to recognize any other aroma. But after couple of glasses you can feel also vanilla, spice and some “candies”. The same flavours also in mouth with alcohol burn.
Premiumrum mit außergewöhnlichem Orangengeschmack. Ansonsten nichts besonders in dem Preissegment.
Very sweet taste considering it is a XO. Great taste of vanilla
For a blended spirit, I find this one to be very tasty, somewhat sweet and with a nice aroma of oranges.
The best tasting rum I’ve ever tried, color is the hue of sweet molasses;bottle is the shape of real pirate bottles. Perfect for sipping or cocktails.
Not a fan it’s not terrible but does not stand up to others in its class
This Rum is one of my favorites so far with the nose to the taste. It does require time to breathe upon opening or it comes across with a cleaner smell. Once it opens up you pick up citrus, vanilla, and spice notes. The taste to me is buttery feeling with citrus, molasses, vanilla, I’ve had pricier Rums but I prefer this as my go to. The taste does match the smell, it’s a nice Rum for me, sweet, decent legs, smells like Christmas sweets.
Pyrat X.O. Reserve je osobitý rum míchaný z velmi dobrých vyzrálých rumů s těžkým a sladkým aroma, které zrají v sudech 15 let. Chutná po vanilce, marcipánu, sladkém koření a přezrálém ovoci. Dezertní rum s dlouhým koncem. Pro zrání se používají sudy, které dříve obsahovaly pomerančový likér Citrónge, obohacující finální produkt chutí pomerančů.
