Saw this
39.00 a shot

What's the story on this? I've only seen the XO Reserve which for some reason always came across as a novelty for me (maybe because the person who gifted it to me was a clown). $39 a shot is insane. What does the bottle run? And what makes it that special?

Product Description
Pyrat (Old English: pronounced pirate) Cask is an ultra premium aged, limited production rum. This excellent dark amber rum is blended from the finest Caribbean rums, aged up to 40 years. Pyrat Cask has the body and color of a rare cognac and is perfect for sipping.



Our Take:
I came in to this tasting with high expectations, and this rum ran a marathon past the line I had set in my mind for it. It is one of those rare potables that I find hard to drink, because I get trapped up in how amazing the aroma proves to be. When I finally sip it I in turn get trapped in the depth of its flavor. This rum is definitely intoxicating on more than one level.



Aroma: blood orange, apricots, brown sugar
Taste: intense blood orange, sweet apricot jam, brown sugar, pie crust, graham cracker, everything intense
Finish: lingering warmth, no heat, just warmth
Feel: full bodied, syrupy, viscous

I decided to take the time and effort to make an original Zombie ... usually I drink the Spievak mostly because it tastes good and I'm lazy!

It's really amazing how the Spievak with lemon juice can approximate the original, at least on my palate

Anyway used four different rums because my LH151 is stashed elsewhere: Coruba Dark, Don Q Gold Anejo, LH80, Hamilton 151 ... 1 oz ea ...

Mighty tasty!

My $.02: Way over-priced, over-sweetened, artificial-tasting swill. All those sweet flavors mentioned above (intense blood orange, sweet apricot jam, brown sugar, pie crust, graham cracker) are overwhelming and cloying. It tastes more like candy than rum. It's been a while since I've had it because I learned my lesson the first two times, and my palate has developed since then, but even in my early rum drinking days (when I still liked Zaya), it was too sweet for me. For the price of one bottle of this, you can get 3-7 bottles of much better rum that isn't just a bunch of chemical flavoring.

Over the last 4 nights or so I've been tinkering and refining a recipe inspired by Trader Sam's Krakatoa Punch. I'm dubbing it "Krakatoa Kula" and have aimed in keeping a similar flavor profile but reducing the overly sweet concoction to something a bit more drinkable. I'm pretty sick of the test process to be honest, but I think I've come close to a final result. I'll share when it's final. Major respect to mixologists who know wtf they're doing!

Keith, I know if you're developing a recipe, it's going to be good. But forward to trying it out at home when it's ready.
