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
While this isn't the best rum I've ever had, it is good enough to drink straight up. So much of this is personal opinion that it's hard to truly rate something that everyone will agree on.
I read another review where the writer commented that it just needed some breathing time and then it was very good. That may be the case, what I’ve always had has been very consistent. Not “great or exceptional” but definitely above average.
Had this a while ago, but it should be mixed with cola or other mixes as I found it to be fairly rough around the edges, so-to-speak.
Tastes like it is perfect for pirates to keep away scurvy. Little harsh but I have always had a bottle on hand since 8 years ago. Can be used as a good mixer if you want to add a little orangey rum flavor.
Sip it straight up! Great finish. Pyrat is a great rum to add to your collection. When drank straight up it has a smooth pleasurable taste. Light sweet warm spice flavor, great aroma and a very unique bottle. I highly recommend this my favorite rum.

Que ce soit à l'odeur ou au gout, j'ai l'impression de boire du grand marnier.
Ce rhum sent beaucoup trop fort l'orange. A essayer peut être en mix, mais pur ça ne passe pas !
Pyrat is a tasty rum, much lighter in both color and body than I normally go for. The flavor has a spicy orange note I quite like, and wouldn't mind in mixed in with Coke or soda water. The aroma, on the other hand, reminded me of paint thinner. However, once you get past the door the rum itself is quite nice...
