Pyrat XO Rum

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Pyrat XO Rum to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

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,

Pyrat XO Rum Reviews

Expensive but bad.

I tasted a good rum some years ago but made the mistake of not remembering the brand. Since then I have been looking for the same good taste but without success. I bought 3 different brands recently. This is the first bottle I opened. It is expensive but bad. It shows that people buy expensive stuff thinking that it is is quality stuff. Now I am hoping that I am not disappointed by at least one of the other 2 bottles.

Horrendous

Quite possibly the worst rum I have ever attempted to drink. Horrendous orange peel/pith taste that refuses to leave. Would rather drink 6 ounces of Cointreau or triple sec then a sip of this.

Disappointed

Orange peel is a good call but it's more of a bitter orange peel. Both the palate and the nose share the same. Not impressed at all for this price range. El Dorado is much better.

My favourite rum

This was a gateway rum for me. I wasn't much of a rum drinker till my best friend told me this tasted like oranges. He wasn't lying. Now I've tried tons of spiced rums and I love them. Great rum for old fashioneds (Try 3 little birds in Brixton if you don't believe me).

There is a few people are really sour about this rum, I can't think why.

It's a pirate's life for me!

I've been looking for THE best bottle of rum for a dear person in my life. He's a retired Marine and deserves nothing but the best. I've been to all the liquor stores I can get someone to give me a ride to since I don't have a vehicle. Thank goodness I'm not a pirate or I'd certainly be in trouble! 😁
I digress....so at every liquor store I've gone to, this Pyrat rum has been the hands down recommendation! I haven't actually tasted it yet but I can't wait to get some this weekend and try it with my favorite Marine/Pirate.

Superb Rum!

This is just awesome. I do have a collection of rum and this makes my guests ooze with lavish praise for all occasions!

Wonderful sipper, sophisticated, liquid Marmalade.Marmite of rum world

What are these reviewers on about , I have over 40 different bottles of rum in my collection all around the £35 to £50 range and would place Pyrat XO in my top three, alongside El Dorado 15 yr and Pussers 15 yr. Pyrate is distinctive, and could be described as Liquid Marmalade. A wonderful after dinner sipping rum, or late evening open fireside sipper. I appreciate that others palate might vary, but to describe this other than a sophisticated superior rum does this a total injustice. Of the many who I have introduced this rum to, most have agreed, but not all. It is definitely the Marmite of the rum world.

It's Rum!

Yes, this IS rum! And the reason it is rum is because of the lack of regulations or standards in the rum world (unlike straight Bourbon or Scotch, fe). For that reason virtually anything can call itself rum, even this awful cane sugar/molasses based ethanol with added artificial flavouring and sweetener. You could probably make your own version of this with some rubbing alcohol, triple sec, and about a pound of sugar, which should be just enough to make it really "smooth". Smoothness, whatever that means, is apparently a very desirable quality for spirits to have, btw...

In summary, this stuff is awful. And yeah, I'm snobby and pretentious about it. If people were a little more discriminating then perhaps we'd all start getting the quality we are paying for. The price for this dreck is absurd! The corporations who sell this stuff must be laughing. I'm sure they're wondering just at what point consumers will stop paying premium prices for such swill. They're thinking to themselves, "gee, we really could sell rubbing alcohol with a splash of artificial flavouring and sugar so long as it's in a nice "premium" looking bottle..." For the love of god, stop encouraging them!

Sure, I suppose there's room for this sort of stuff--it's at the bottom shelf in the liqueur aisle--just stop calling it rum! Rum--real, true, actual rum--is good. It's beautiful. Everybody should be able to afford and experience it. Rum deserves better than this. WE deserve better than this!
