As Hoti, patron saint of fortune tellers and bartenders, advises, “You don’t need a good reason to drink. You just need a good drink.”
Pyrat Rum Pistol Tasting
Aroma: Comes across thin with notes of orange and vanilla.
Tasted Neat: Remains thin with slight burn. Definite orange flavor, but not as significant as Pyrat Rum XO Reserve. Spice noted, possibly hints of cinnamon and clove, but mild rather than deep. Just the right amount of sweetness to the spirit. Not particularly my idea of sipping rum. More of rum on the rocks with squeeze of orange and wee amount of lime possibly or could definitely see this going as a round of shots to start the night rolling. Pyrat Rum Pistol mixes excellently for definition in cocktails.
