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.
Pyrat is ok. Very citrusy and grassy. Not the smoothest but offers a change from other rums.
is this the best rum i have ever had? the answer is no. but for the price ($23.00) its the best rum out there i would drink this over captain morgan or sailor jerry any day of the week. its very smooth with notes of orange, vanilla and some smoke to finish it off .
het ruikt naar de shampoo van mij vrouw maar smaakt naar meer
Pyrat XO is een complexe blend van geselecteerde Caribische rums die tot 15 jaar hebben gerijpt in Franse Limousine en zoete Amerikaanse eikenhouten vaten.
Geur: zwaar en zoet met hints van marsepijn en vanille
Smaak: bitter-zoet, enigzins fruitig, zeer vol en zwaar
Afdronk: zeer lang
Pyrat XO Reserve is een prachtige Rum, uitermate geschikt is om puur van te genieten.
If you enjoy sweet, cloyish grand marnier cough medicines you will like this, as for me, not so much...tried it in a rumgita and it was ok, but no way could I force it down neat, warm or with ice, best part was the budda belly medallion with the god of drink around the bottle's neck.
unlike the others, i dont mind the orange and all the shades of the taste there, its rather different from what i have had. Juicy and fruity, its somewhat weird to say when comes to alcohol, at the begining it had strong taste but then fruity flavours appeared and kept it till the end. I would call it sweet. Also strange/unique combination is with coke, not exactly i could directly describe, still eligible for drink shots too.
odeur d'orange agréable, première bouche gout d'alcool un peu violent pour ensuite laisser place à la douceur et à un gout fin d'orange et d'agrume mais pas chimique de type grand marnier. pour le prix il ne faut pas sen priver.
Simple, not to exciting just simple everyday rum. Binny's for 19.99
Lite rom for pengene. Gir ingen annen opplevelse enn at den smaker appelsin. Fin flaske men ellers ikke noe å hoppe i taket for
a great find. This rum does not disappoint great flavours that make it something to share.
Really good and nice rum. Smooth and gentle. I love it.
Hate to disappoint, but as a cognac drinker the last thing I expect after opening a bottle is a strong punch of acetone in my nose. I truly hope that I bought a dud. The initial stink is simply horrid!
abv: 40% (zeer zacht)
presentatie: prachtige 70cl. fles met versiersels.
aroma: eikenhout, citrus fruit, aarde.
smaak: zoet, karamel, vanille, eikenhout, sinaasappel, aarde.
nasmaak: van zoet naar droog, citrus, karamel. Houd lang aan.
Al met al een volgens mij prima ,maar aparte, rum. Aanrader om eens te proberen.
24 gr/liter suiker, punt minder.
I know people say it's "sweet" but for me it's very smooth and I enjoy it either straight up or with coke.
A good sipping rum not so good in the kitchen it works with creps
i like this rum neat and chilled, it reminds me of Grand Marnier and Cointreau cordials. To me this is a light bodied rum with mild flavoring and a smooth after taste not to be paired with a cigar.
Pyrat is mostly disappointing. Incredibly fruity and acidic. Not great over the rocks, undrinkable straight and very expensive as a mixer. I won't buy it again
In smell.a.lot of common with A.H. Riise,but the taste and afterburn is not so delicate and has not so mild and smooth feeling. Overall great sipping/mix rum.
This rum has a burn that is just shy of Captain Morgan. It is not overly sweet and works well as a mixer at a 50/50 ratio. It makes an acceptable gift.
I was expecting the Pyrat XO to be pretty bad after reading most of the reviews. I thought it was a decent sipper, lighter in color then what I usually have. Enjoyable for me.
not really my first choice as it almost tastes like orange liquor. My wife loves it though!
Terrible rum, just terrible.
Yes you can drink it. Yes it does not taste awfull. But this is nothing like something you would expect of a "rum". I tastes like a fake orange. The smell is also extremly awkward!
Very tasty with a lovely and clear taste of orange. Goes well both straight up and in fruit drinks.
I agree with many others: it has an orange flavor to it and my fist sip reminded me of Grand Marnier but with an underlying rum flavor, although I've not tasted Grand Marnier in years It's a smooth sipper and I like it. The orange was not overpowering for my taste. Would consider using it as a variation instead of other orange liquers in cocktails.
