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. Appearance / Colour Light, reddish amber colour. Smell / Nose / Aroma Sweet, Orange, vanilla, cola, cinnamon, brown sugar, honey. You will be able to identify this Rum from several feet away once you pop the cork. Flavour / Taste / Palate Very sweet aromas – almost like Triple Sec – of orange, tangerine and lemon, are the most dominant, followed by a waxy vanilla and brown sugar, and perhaps a hint of cinnamon and pepper spicing it up. Finish Sweet finish that leaves you smacking your lips with an orange and cola flavour that just lasts and lasts. Comment Quite controversial Rum among Rum lovers for its very noticable orange taste. Because the aromas and flavors are not too complex this is an excellent entry point into the world of sipping Rums. Flavour spiral Orange, brown sugar, cola, cinnamon, sweet, sweet vanilla, lemon, honey, tangerine.
