Pyrat XO falls into that category of rums which are sweet and fragrant, but not the sort of thing I can drink on its own. Having said that though I think it's absolute magic as a floater or mixed drink as forrest said. I bought a bottle about 2 yrs ago and was disappointed, so I used it as a floater on a number of drinks. I ran out of it over the summer, and I'm interested in replenishing my stocks for that very purpose. Beautiful stuff, but not a sipping rum -- not for me, at least.

Chauvet is made from Molasses. . . .

Wray & Nephew is an absolute Gem!

A friend of mine ( who is a rep for W&N . . ) had a bottle and asked me... the same question . . .
J Wray and Grapefruit--- is a a no-lose scenario!
The drink i "created" for my friend was J. Wray O.P.(2-3 Parts) Grapefruit Juice (3 - 4 Parts) Cane Syrup (1 -2 Part), Lime Juice (1 Part) Mix with ice. . . .and strap in!

Thanks for your patience Forrest, I read too fast the first time...I saw Martinique and 44% and assumed it was agricole. I read again and saw Traditional and Molasses... oups.

Well I didn't have Cane Syrup, so I just added orange juice instead. Definitely an improvement over OP and Coke. It does have to be handled carefully though, that stuff is powerful.

Well Ben that is original-- sub OJ for Cane Juice-- Oh Yeah!!
(i would say simple syrup is a closer sub-- but hey good is good!)

Powerful is the truth!
J Wray and Suntory Grapefruit Soda is a hit also!! With a couple drops of bitters-- or a splash of Aperol...
