  • And I didn't think there was a heaven.

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Smooth, sweet, rich, dark, complex.
    Cons: I don't have an endless supply of it.

    Summary: Just goes to show why children don't get to be cynics yet. Pyrat XO is an all around, truly fine Rum, and I'm not just saying this because I had some for breakfast. I first discovered it on recommendation from a BevMo employee who I trusted because ... read more

    Pros: Smooth, sweet, and well-priced.
    Cons: Slight whiff of wet baby diapers.

    Summary: Pyrat Rum XO Reserve is a bit of an anomaly in the world of rum.  It is one of the sweetest rums on the market, has a vibrant orange curacao note that can almost be overwhelming at times, and is produced on the island of Anguilla which has never ... read more

    Pros: Distinct, pure flavor that is hard to dislike.

    Pros: Warm, good flavor, pleasant , inviting.
    Cons: Not available in 55 gallon kegs.

    Pros: Absolutely, bar none, the BEST rum I've ever used with wassail!  Also delicious by itself.
    Cons: Wish it was sold in gallons.

    Summary: I purchased Pyrat Rum X0 Reserve on a suggestion by a friend of mine for a wassail I was making for a New Year's Day dinner. Let me put it this way:  six liters of wassail (with rum) were gone in 15 minutes.  Then they went for the ... read more

    Pros: Quality straight through. Reasonable price.
    Cons: Get out of here...

    Summary: One of the better rums I've tried so far. There is a twin layered flavor, like orange or something on top of a sweet fresh rum taste. It tastes a bit like Carlisle Reef Rum, another very good rum. There is a pleasant flavor about it that I can't place ... read more
