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
Back in 2005, I was mostly a Cognac guy with the occasional ultra premium Tequila and Scotch added for some variety. I was offered this particular rum by a bartender at Cuba Libre near Downtown Dallas to try. It was certainly better than any rum I had ever tried! But I was use to the typical Bacardi, Captain Morgans of the world. It is for all purposes, a nice starter rum if that is all available at the bar. It is sippable , but has bite. Not very complex. I actually believe it makes a nice mixer if anything.
Bottle : The bottle is quite nice.. It´s a cool touch with the ribbon tied to it and it has a nice shape.
Nose : The scent it pretty descent.. But there is a hint of orange already in the scent.
Taste : The taste is pretty full, but there is a strong tone of orange in it.. That kill´s it for me..
Finish : Same here.. If it wasn´t for the the awful orange tone it would have been ok.
If you like Zacapa 23 you will love this one..
Had a great experience with this rum, in a rum bar, and it became my first sipping rum.
I must confess that I have outgrown it, and just keep it for the really cool bottle - but i will give it at good 6 (1 is for the bottle).
It really smells and tastes of orange, witch i think is distinctive.
Trés interessant à decouvrir. Une belle rondeur et une approche aromatique toute en agrume.
Un rhum différent a conseiller tout particulièrement aux fans de Grand Marnier.
My expectations were high for this rum but I was surprised by the taste reminiscent of triple sec or orange liquor. Too much of it to my opinion. It is good, but it lacks the sugary flavor of cane. Nevertheless, I'm happy to have it in m'y collection shelf.
It's almost like southern comfort not very complex and not as smooth as other rums in the same price bracket. I like the bottle but wouldn't go rushing out to add it to my collection
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.
