I know one of the Pyrat products is supposed to have an orange flavor component to it... is that Pistol or is it the XO or something else?
Oh my god yes!!!
Here's a good link if you are looking for orange liqueurs: http://ohgo.sh/category/cocktails/orange-liqueur-showdown/
Pyrat XO is probably the rum most deserving of the label 'try before you buy' if you intend to sip it.

Not too derail the thread but...
Tequila is a bit of a funny beast. I've tried way more than I have sipping rums (like 40 tequilas? Compared to ...20 rums? Yep, I went to Playa Del Carmen (near Cancun) & kept asking for samples! If I liked something I'd have a snifter in a bar to get a better feeling for it.
Sipping tequilas are a little bit homogeneous for me, they have depth of flavour but within the 'bounds' of tequila. I think tequila needs a bit of pep for me to enjoy it, that includes sippers.
Don Juilo is quite soft for me, I nearly brought some but I brought back Hennadura Respardo which has a more pep but still quite soft, & EL Jimador blanco as its fine for a white.
But I really should have brought back Chamucos Respardo, but was a cheapskate & reqret it now
I don't say this in a douche bag way but if you want to try tequila go to Playa De Carmen near Cancun & get it for free! Perhaps the most quickest way to try the most tequilas. PM for travel tips
