I could pour it on pancakes! :-) I love rum and oranges and this is a beautiful marriage of the two!
I tasted this rum along with several other mid-high-end rums where it stood out for its Pyrat-ness - for all the good, or bad, that flavor profile brings to your palette. It's an improvement on the company's XO (which I initially disliked but later grew to...not dislike as much). But the price far out of line with that improvement. Personally I'd have a hard time justifying a bottle purchase.
Generally, I like to think I'm not really a Pitbull about drinks I share with friends, but this one; Hah! I have bad news for you all- GET YOUR OWN. Alright, lets talk about WHY I won't share my liquid Gold. Pyrat makes at least three different rums (and I do mean different- just try any two, and you'll understand.) and each of them has a truly unique taste! the Cask 1623 has a almost sweet finish, but doesn't have a sweet lingering aftertaste, just a clean finish.
Rich flavor, nice spice and orange accents and pure decadence in a glass.
I bought a bottle of this in the Bahamas when we were down for Rum Bahamas. It seems thinker and sweeter than the XO. A very good sipper, but not one of my absolute favorites for the price. A good bottle to have in an extensive collection.
Now this is a beautiful drink. I've started many friends down the road to fine rums with just a taste of this.
