Pyrat Dark Rum
The brand is owned by Patrón Spirits and gets its name from the Old English word for
'pirate.' The stout bottle of the XO Reserve is also a tribute to this heritage. The rums are
a blend of select pot still rums sourced throughout the Caribbean, many of which are
around 15 years old, and some are created in a miraculously longliving wood still that
has been running rum for 300 years.
Once blended, the rum is matured further in French Limousin and toasted American oak barrels.
This seems like an excessive amount of
aging given the Caribbean climate, which speeds, aging, but that is likely the reason
behind the extreme taste found in Pyrat. What you can expect from any of the Pyrat rums
is an ultrasmooth taste from beginning to end in Cask 1623 and a very fine mixing rum in
