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.
Bought it out of sheer curiosity after reading the reviews here. It's a half-decent rum but don't give any credit to comment saying it suddenly becomes good after aeration. It tastes like an $25 rum with after the cork has rotted in the bottle. The strong cork taste is not a delightful one and when combined with the strong alcohol hit, you're left wondering if it's even good in a cocktail. Gonna be keeping this in my fridge along with a bottle of coke so I have some half-decent Cuba Libres when I have guests and don't want to serve a $10 rum.
At first I wasn't sure about this. I do like the orange overtones. Some vanilla oak and coffee notes. Even a faint cocoa in there. Pretty smooth. A little thin though. It doesn't have the depth or complexity of many rums. Balance is just ok. Finish is quite good and reasonably long. Finish is better neat than on ice. Overall I was pleasantly surprised. More aging would likely add depth and balance this rum really needs. It is a little different. Glad I waited until my 3rd and 4th taste. It definitely grows on you.
Lo cierto es q después d escuchar las cosas tan malas q se decían sobre éste ron me ha sorprendido para bien, éso si, ni es de los mejores y su precio es desorbitado teniendo en cuenta su calidad
Is this orange liqueur or rum? I'm not sure. Decent enough flavour profile if you are looking for orange. Colour is a nice orange like tint. Ornage lettering for the label. Oh and an orange ribbon tied around the neck to boot!
Simply stated, I don't like it much but it's not the worst I've tasted. I took someone's advice and let it "breath" for 2 hours. Yes, it was "easier" going down, but I don't always have that luxury. Bottom line, I like my rum to taste like rum, not oranges. This might appeal to some tastes, but not mine.
This rum reminds me a lot of Old Monk only a little bit lighter. it is excellent on the rocks with a slice of pineapple orange with it.
This rum has some good flavor with a hint of orange but can seem bitter to the untested palate. Not a beginner rum if you expect the sweeter side.
I love this rum. This rum is a sipping rum. It goes good with a cigar. If you like cognac, then you would love this rum. It has a hint of orange and vanilla on your palate. I put the bottle in the refrigerator and drink it cold. It taste good when it is cold and in a shot glass. No need for ice. I take a shot every evening. I also give a shot to buddha and he loves it.
My favorite rum is Arundel from Callwood distillery on Tortola in the BVI. Pyrat is my go to since Callwood doesn't export. Deep taste, looooooooong finish. I was elated when I tasted how close it is to Arundel, and have been buying for 20 years.
Pre mňa sklamanie. Jeden z najznámejších rumov. Chcel som ho skúsiť, no bolo to sklamanie. Vôňa je po pomarančoch ale prebíja ju alkoholový zápach. Ten časom zoslabol. Chuť je taktiež po pomarančoch ale ako keby chemicka - umelá. Pre mňa jeden z najhorších rumov ake som zatial skúsil (10 druhov).
