Pyrat XO Rum
Pyrat // Guyana
Pyrat was originally conceived in 1997 by the Anguilla Rum Company and has since been acquired by Patrón Spirits. It is a blend of rums sourced from throughout the Caribbean, though the majority of its makeup consists of a Demerara style from Guyana. The rums are aged in a combination of American (ex-bourbon) and French Limousin oak, for as little as 2 years and as much as 15. The shape of the bottle is a throwback to the style of decanters favored by sea captains and pirates. The medallion around its neck is said to symbolize Hoti, the Patron Saint of Bartenders, despite the bottle’s somewhat unwieldy shape.
Flavored RumRum that has been flavored, either naturally or artificially, with the predominant flavor(s) stated on the label.
"This is a very sweet and tangy style of rum. Candied orange and marmalade are foremost in flavor followed by caramel and vanilla syrup (seen at corporate coffee places). Some sweet spices enter in mixed with white chocolate. In all it tastes of a milk chocolate Christmas orange (the kind you whack on the counter to release the “slices”) with an alcoholic bite."
