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.
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.

Un Grand Marnier avec un petit gout de rhum...
Pourquoi pas le déguster comme un Schrubb, avec des glaçons
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 !
Strong taste with a touch of orange. I didn't care for it with coke, but by itself and on the rocks wasn't too bad at all.
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...
Not a bad sipping rum with an expected complexity. I keep this one on my top shelf.
Good taste a lot of orange and citrus. Long after taste
Pale caramel color, great nose. Says it's up to 15 yes old but doesn't taste that aged.
Taste as a Grand mariner liqour
Honey and orange flavour. Subtil et licoreux. Its taste is like no other
Like no other nice light almost orange color. Pleasant citrus scent. Unique flavors hints of citrus very smooth.
This is one of my favorites. They serve this on Royal Caribbean cruise. It was nice peachy taste and stands up from rest.
This fruity rum is quite drinkable. Probably with sugar, probably full of marketing but the presentation is top notch, the taste bears caramel, vanilla, fruit, citrus... I like it.
To much orange taste! It's too unilateral. The old version Planters Gold XO (picture) was much better his taste more complex. Perhaps they've lost their Masterblender while the Anguilla Rum Company was bought by the Patrón Spirits Company.
discovered this on Anguilla in 2006 when I also developed a taste for ti punch and real daiquiri... (not those sickly sweetened frozen concoctions that ought to be served from a Mr. Softee!) once back in the states I discovered it could be found at warehouse store for just under $30! wow, this is a fine versatile rum, good enough to sip on the rock but mostly used in honest cocktails. yes, there's some orange flavor but nowhere as cloying as a flavored rum, just a dominant overtone. but that works for me. a damn nice rum for good all around drinking. (no way is this a 6. my 8 is intentionally a bit high just to move the average up a bit closer to the 7.5 I think it should be.)
You either love it or hate it. It doesn't have a hint of orange its an orange rum! Personally I like the difference
strong aromas and flavours of orange and very smooth. A great alternative rum when you don't want the heavier flavours of the darker rums.
This is one of the rums that many try when discovering the world of rums, it´s smooth and fruity, or rather orangey, and there´s a full 24g/l of sugar added to the bottle. Unfortunately. Because this may make some think that rum is sweet all by itself (since it`s made from sugarcane) which is not true since there´s no sugar in it after distillation. If there´s any it has been added after. This rum is way too sweet.
Very special rum. An interesting smokey orange flavour, but with a slightly strange aftertaste. Not my cup of tea.
Too sweet , to much orange ! But i recon the Ladies Would like it !
A decent rum but with far too heavy orange notes to my tastes.
It's just fluid orange on 40%
This is not a rum for me. The lack of other things in the taste, makes it a never to own rum.
So many people like this one , so i have buyed it.
But i never had a disgusting like this one.
smell : Alcohol , synthetic Orange ,cleanser
No joke , my wife has a Cleanser - it´s the same smell as the Pyrat XO.
Sorry , I hate it.
