Pyrat XO Bottling Note

The bottle based on the design of those kept by ship's captains and pirate during the 19th Century. The rums in this blend are aged as much as fifteen years in American oak and French Limousin barrels.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Very citrussy. So much orange peel. Icing sugar, waves of fruit. Perhaps a little cough sweet note too.

Palate: Sweet, viscous, more orange. Marmalade.

Finish: Molasses, orange peels, marmalade, spice.

Overall: Like an incredible rum old-fashioned,

User Reviews of the Pyrat XO Rum

"Rum" for people who don't like rum....but like cointreau.

Appears to be the result of accidentally mixing in some left-over Fanta syrup with a bunch of cheap rums. Not sure how anyone can call it rum. It tastes nothing like it. Saying it's the best rum is like saying sangria is the best red wine. Ridiculously overpriced for what it is.

Indeed try for yourself

One of my favourite rums, I always recommend this and pyrat to friends that aren't big rum fans. Diplomatico is a decent gateway rum and one I always like to have a bottle of in the house.
Everyone's entitled to thier own opinion but when giving yours, try not sounding like a a gret pretentious TW@

The best of the rums

Tried many rums, they all taste terrible rubber. The Pirate-no, smooth, taste good, straight or in cocktail.

sip it for what it is

read the reviews....all over the internet....then sip and come to your own conclusion...this is a is a very different rum that overlaps into other territories...yep, it's got a liqueur-ish-ness to it...orangey for sure....but it is definitely a rum that will, sure, mix fine in a very nice way...heck, add a shot to a mimosa! but i wouldn't waste it that way....perfect strange sipping rum from....guyana!

The orange is very present, and in a balanced way. I tasted this first on Anguilla and it is one of my top choices of rum. Makes a nice gift too.

Top Notch Stuff

5 year ago, I became a rum convert, and after tasting the Pyrat, I can definitely say that was the right choice and I wish I had gotten there sooner.

This is the perfect rum to take neat, no ice of course, and definitely no mixer, just sit outside and sip away, and is perfect with a nice cigar.

Smooth & Sippable

I bought this for the bottle shape and name at Gatwick Duty Free for £34.
I liked it from the first taste and so did everyone who tried it. I thought it very similar to Metaxa 7 Stars. Not too orangey flavour..

rum taster

I found this rum delightful .Different to other ones nevertheless one to add to anyone's collection

Horribly unimpressed

Dry and bland. It contained a flavor that is hard to describe, like spiced rum cut with rubbing alcohol. Take a cheap bottle of Jerry any day least out has a little flavor with its bite.

Could not agree more with "the chaps", really good and affordable rum. I first thought of a taste of caramel cause of the grand sweetness kind like the don papa rum. overall really good.

22nd November 2014


this is by far one of my most favourite rums even though it is indeed very much like a liqueur,smooth and sweet with hint of orange to flavour and very drinkable especially in summer with a cube of ice well worth a try and i've had many of thoughs I can tell you

Not a rum, but a liqueur

This is so obviously a spiced rum, it tastes more like Cointreau than rum. Very disappointing, unless you are looking to buy a liqueur.

3rd August 2014

simply the best

I've brought this rum more than any other drink from masters of malt and it must be said that i absolutely love it. orangy/whiskyish and smooth a little like a liqueur

All of Me

Mr. Mymic is damn right. Bought it for 30 dollars at KY Airport duty free. Personally I cannot agree with customer who says this is better than Zacapa, because, honestly, Guatemalan rums are better made. Botran (Solera) is too. Good rum, though, if you want to stay in the young-rum range. My girlfriend loves it.
I give it 3.5 stars.

Mr Mymic

When you first open it you'll think you're drinking alcoholic benalin and you'll be dissapointed, but give it time in the glass and it softens and becomes very marmaladesk, jelly tots, and jaffa cakes, it retains a slight medicinal twang, but this is really nice rum, perfect for a winter warmer

A touch of smokiness

Forgot the rating for the above.

A touch of smokiness

I have tried Mount Gay Extra Old, Zaya 12-year old, and Ron Zacapa Sistema Solerna 23, but this is my favotire. It has just this subtle touch of smokiness the other don't have that trully endears it. It is rich, flaovorful, long-lasting. Sadly, I cannot recommend purchasing here, as I believe this can be obtained for fully $10-15 (US) less than Master of Malt is asking. But if this is your only way to obtain it, it's worth it.

This has a really lovely nose - lovely citrussy. Decent sweetness and you just want to take a sip right from the bottle.

Part of the Pyrat range of 4 great rums - Easy drinking straight of over a single cube of ice - Best purchase it from the Duty Free at Heathrow for £26.00, or even better in the Caribbean or USA for approx $26.00

This rum has one of the most warming and inviting noses you will come across.

It oozes candied orange and fruitcake aromas with a lovely sugary sweet taste that is very long lasting
