The dominance of orange is unmistakable. This is not rum. At best, itʻs a rum liqueur, which is fine if that's what you're looking for.

The box and bottle are great looking, so I expected the rum to be as well. Quite disappointed in the flavor. Tasted like sugar candy, and not in a good way! Let it sit and breathe in a sifter for 24 hours...still horrible. So I let it breathe for another 48 hours and added an ice cube. Still terrible, so I threw the bottle away. Doesn't taste like rum at all....tastes like a low quality brandy, mixed with a low quality snapps.

This rum is simply average. I expected a lot more flavor and less burn for the price. I wouldn’t quite say disappointed, but certainly not a “wow” either. Drink your friends, don’t buy your own.

Smooth, with just the right amount of fire at the end. Will be drinking again.

No, this is just not a rum in my liking. Too syntetic and the taste and smell of orange is taking over everything else! It gets a little better as I let it breath for somewhat 15-20 minutes, but its still the worst one I've ever bought. The bottle is lovely thou, so that gets the rate to get up from 2 to 3.

There’s no doubt Pyrat is a unique rum. Nose isn’t appealing to me, and hard to distinguish as it’s not a typical rum nose - slightly floral and fruity. Taste is slightly better, I get orange, cinnamon, and a little slice. Not a good finish, short and rubbery. I could envision some liking the uniqueness, but it’s not for me. Might as well give it a try.

I find this ok, but not worth all the hype. If you want orange, I can think of better rums and drinks; if you want rum, there are way better rums. It's ok, but if I wanted something orange, I think Rumbullion is much more interesting.

Pryat was too citrus for me to enjoy neat. Gave it to a friend who liked it as a mixer.

I bought the drink package on my last cruise, and I saw this on the shelf, and had to try it. No internet to read reviews. Turns out it was to expensive for my plan (go figure) so I paid the difference. I could finish it but just barely. It has that same cloying taste I don't like about Jamaican rums. Maybe, as they others said, Orange was the 1st impression. I switched to Ron Zacapa 23, which also wasn't on my plan, but has the flavor I look for.
