UPDATE 2/15/05: If this company is going under, or they're scrapping the white, I don't know. But that's the price online! haven't been in the store in almost a month, so not sure about the instore pricing. (It doesn't look good to go hopping in to buy liquor while you're out on worker's comp with a knee injury)

___________

There is NO reason not to stock up like mad at this price!

Don't forget to sign up for yer BevMo card to get the discount.

Since I have to factor shipping into this, I did a web search to determine if this really is as good a deal as it seems.

I discovered four things:

1.

PyRAT is also short for Python Relational Animal Tracking

http://www.scionics.de/pyrat.html


2.

877spirits.com want $44 for the same bottle.

Most other places have prices similar to BevMo's usual (non-sale) price of a bit under $20.


3.

This is (inexplicably) both the cheapest and least common of Pyrat's four varieties of rum.


4.

The best price anywhere (non-sale) is Sams, here in Chicago, who's usual price is $16.49.

http://www.samswine.com/searches/SpiritSearchResults.asp?USearch=pyrat


...thus, adding shipping, but deleting sales tax, the BevMo sale price is the best you'll do.

A trippy thought/fact about Pyrat Rum.....
It's made in Anguilla, British West Indies.

I'm guessing this would be the Pyrat Superior Blanco. One of the local liquor stores sells it for around $16. The Pyrat Planter's XO Reserve Rum is on sale at Hi Times for $17.99, marked down from $45.99. I've never had it but at that price it is very tempting.

OH NO! IT'S KONO!

I'll bring a bottle of the XO with me to the Hawaiian Inn so you can try it there.
It's odd but in a good way.

I just got a bottle of the XO Reserve on sale from Hi Times and I must say it was money very very well spent. Just drink it straight or on ice with a twist of lemon. It is my new favorite rum.

Use it in place of Malibu in recipes- it's a little better. For Coconut rum, I think Bacardi COCO is the best- it's 35% by volume instead of 20-25% like the others. But, my biggest reccommendation is to use white rum and Coco Lopez. Real coconut really tastes better.

Martiki, any special drink that is good with this coconut flavoring that is not too sweet?

If you've got an ounce of coco lopez, an ounce of orange juice, four ounces of Pineapple Juice, two ounces of Pussers Rum, and some grated nutmeg and cinnamon, you're all set with a magnificent Painkiller. Add a little more orange if it's still too sweet.

Thanks for the BevMo tip. Unfortunately, they won't send stuff to my Minnesota address. But I will keep a look out for the white Pyrat locally.
