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.
Tasty, but not quite great
If you tend to the sweeter not dry side of rums, you will like this. It has tones of vanilla (which some people turn away from) and orange. I love sipping this rum with a cigar. I will always keep it on my rum shelf, and it ads a little extra flare with the unique packaging. It is also reasonably priced.
Didn't really like it. Initial taste reminded me of taking children's orange triamenic cough syrup as a kid. That seems rather specifically bad doesn't it? I want to believe the one reviewer who said it needs to breath to be good, but I'm sure all rum is better after breathing and I don't want to wait 2 hours before sipping 1 glass of rum. Love the bottle and presentation but it's just not good.
It wasn't nothing impressive that came to mind. It has no body, the taste of citrus orange spices disappear rather quickly. It will probably mix well but not a sipper. It has a strong 👃 but very smooth, no bit after the initial entry. Save your money and get an orange liqueur for less cost, or just get something different.
Purchased this rum primarily because of its awesome presentation. Nice looking bottle in wooden/ glass case looks great on my bar. Unfortunately that's where the love ended! Pulled the cork, poured small amount into brandy glass, swirled and took a deep sniff and whammo! Nostrils assaulted with something akin to alcohol base cleaner. Knowing that smell can be deceptive took a mouthful, swished around mouth and swallowed. Smell had not been deceptive. Thinking that maybe I just needed to give something different a bit of a chance poured a second glass, still didn't rise to the occasion. Decided to checkout some reviews ( maybe it's just me) read that if you give it a couple of hours sitting in the glass it transforms, tried that, still not my cup of tea. Tried with coke but whatever they use to give it that flavour even cuts through the coke! Don't like to be to harsh, everyone has different tastes, but unfortunately this is not to mine. At around $70-$80 a bottle in Australia this rum is destined to be a bar piece only in my home.
Pomerančová, lehce osvěžující vůně, chuť trochu do tropicana. Hřeje, ale neškrábe. O moc víc toho v chuti není, je to relativně nekomplikovaný rum. Ale neberu to jako mínus, v jednoduchosti je někdy síla. A pyrat k nim patří. Můžete si u něj sednout a v klidu si odpočinout, nechat ho chvíli ležet na patře. O moc víc toho sice nenabídne, takže nehledejte skrytá tajemství, ale na odpočinkový večer po náročném dni se svým způsobem hodí víc, než sofistikované kousky. Ta druhá půlka lahve se bude pít taky dobře :)
Aroma: Kerosene and triple sec.
Taste: Wow, chemicals, a sweet fake orange, more chemicals.
Aftertaste: Not a good one.
Mixology: Mixed with Coca-cola taste really good. The citrus flavor is a nice touch, like Appleton Estate Special Gold.
For the price ($11 375ml.) and taste did not worth it. Not a sipper and expensive mixer.
