XO Reserve Rum
Reviews and Tasting Notes

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

Top reviews for Pyrat XO Reserve Rum:

— My first 10 star rating. Incredible tasting rum. Bought a bottle and finished it in two days with friends. Delicious neat, with a splash of water, on the rocks or with Coke. Looking forward to the next bottle and making some cocktails. Very sweet. Smooth. Goes down very easy. Not as complex as some people might like, but for me it is the best drink I've ever had.

— Best rum bang for your buck! Neat, rocks or with Coke, it doesn’t disappoint.

— Great

Joe
Joe,
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,

Elizabeth,
The quality and flavor in this rum marked with this low of a price is steal in every sense of the deal. This rum will definitely have you singing sea shanties by the end of the night. Drink responsibly you scallywags!! If flavor is what you seek, then this Pyrat will make one helluva companion.

Laura,
Tried this on a recommendation as we try to venture into the world of Rum (we have been priced out of Bourbon a bit). Okay but thin. Worth the try, but probably won't get again.

This stuff is great. Smooth and slightly sweet. It goes down smooth and mixes well with coke or diet coke. I really like this stuff.

Smooth sipping rum, caramel and vanilla, great with one ice cube - don't waste it on cola!

William,
The nose definitely has primarily vanilla. Sip this one real light first to allow the taste buds to get accustomed to the alcohol. The second taste is where the subtle complexity comes out. sugar sweet and oak come out in the after taste as you sit and contemplate.

Alex,
Wonderfully smooth, easy drinking. A tad sweet, but drinking straight is the way to go! Not quite a favorite, but definitely a good one to try, savor, and enjoy...
 
DeWayne
DeWayne,
Once you let this breathe for about 2 hours, it’s true form awakens. Pretty nice
 
Tucker
Tucker,
I found it much more enjoyable sipping with some ice to dilute it down, which brought out the citrus and sweet vanilla flavors. Not smooth enough to enjoy straight, but a great value for a novice sipper not looking to spend much.

Pyrat has become my favorite Rum to sip on the rocks or straight up. Yummy flavor and easy to drink. Smooth, a little sweet and simply AWESOME.

It is an outstanding, rich cane liqueur with an old-fashioned finish.

Sweet but not overly so, great set of flavours that develop as you drink and even wonderful, if it's not sacrilege to suggest it, with a mixer! Wonderful stuff

One of my fav rums. It's also in one of the tasting packs where you can compare it with zacapa and dos maderas which are my #1 and #2.
