Tasty, but not quite great

I actually like some of the cheaper brands better. It's worth trying if a friend has it, just to see what you think. A couple of my friends really like it. I'm thinking it's the orange I don't like, it almost tasted forced.

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.

The looks of this rum is really great and the marketing blabla is equaly promising. The content is not as satisfiying though.. the taste is very harsh, you can smell and taste a lot of alcohol and too much orange aroma. I tried it neat, on the rocks, with lime and left it resting for a while, but I didn't find the right way to consume.

I got a bottle of Pyrat as birthday gift. The bottle is very nice and here is where all nice ends. The smell is artificial and fruity, with strong alcohol kick. Taste is strong alcohol and unpleasant. I can't recommend this rum.

I raised my rating from 3 to 6. The reason is, I left it in glass for three hours to let it breath. It improved significantly, but there are still much better rums out there in this price range.

Aanbevolen door Gall en Gall. Speciaal besteld. Opzich goed van smaak, maar z'n geld niet waard. Andere Rummen zijn en stuk zachter.

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.

I had it about two years in my bar, and no and not to finish it. Nice bottle, but rum below drinkable average.

Very alcoholic taste, weird artificial orange coloring and flavor. I wouldnt give this to my worst enemy.

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.

Not One of my favorite rums . Money wasted . Might be good with mix ?
