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.
Pyrat is ok. Very citrusy and grassy. Not the smoothest but offers a change from other rums.
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.
Nice aroma and even nicer finish. Orange plays in your mouth like it is Christmas. It goes very nicely with dark chocolate!
If you would like to enter in the world of rum, this is the starting bottle :)
This drink is disgusting. I wouldn’t even call it a rum. It has so much “orange flavoring” thst it is almost undrinkable. I don’t know what they were thinking. They should have to label as orange flavored rum.
Really about all you can say about this. Not great, not terrible. Bottle adds variety to your collection. Flavor is a little different than other mixers.
I used to hate Pyrat. The flavor confused me and it seemed inconsistent with rums that I liked on the whole.
Like one of the comments below, I left a bottle open to breathe. It really does open up to a more complex orange and vanilla flavor than originally lets on.
At first I thought the flavors seemed forced and overdone - almost like it was too ‘in your face’ with it. Now though, I find it enjoyable to sip once it breathes.
tento rum ocenia najmä milovníci pomarančovej chute.
This one is certainly up there in terms of presentation stakes! The rum inside is OK but not great.
I like the bottle, the cork, the color, nay its orange/vanilla flavour.
Lots of orange and some sticky sweetness in this one. It can be sipped but I found I could not finish the glass easily because of how cloyingly it became.
She. I can find this on sale, I like having it around. Heavy taste of oranges and sweetness. I like having it over ice. Haven’t made drinks with it yet.
Not really bodied, do not really tasted as aged rum
Första gången jag drack den här så tyckte jag att den var riktigt god och rolig som smakade apelsin. Andra gången så blev smaken en liten besvikelse. Tunn och alldeles för mycket romerskanågar i smaken. Roligt dock med apelsinsmaken men det saknas nåt....
Doesn't have much of a smell to note. The flavor is a bit harsh and antiseptic almost. Not a very strong rum flavor at all, in fact I couldn't really detect much of any one flavor that did stand out.
I would mix it with a splash of lime, cane juice and mint sprigs any day for a dirty mojito, don't think I'd spend $ to sip on this one though.
