The Pyrat XO is $18.00 at a local store so I decided to give it a try. Wow talk about orange flavor and aroma. I didn't care for it.

Rhum Chauvet 'Special Cocktail' is Rhum Traditional (distilled from Molasses) from Martinique, bottled in France at 44 %

i agree there is a lot of Orange flavors in the XO but i don't dislike it . . . Definitely something i don't drink 'neat' but a lovely component/ float to a variety of drinks..

On the nose there is dried lemon zest, verbena, currants or sultana-- kind of reminds me of a cachaca, or maybe even a pisco. . . there is also mallow or angel breath in the background. The taste is fresh, light spices and and a clean mineral driven mouth-feel. Rumdog007 mentioned that it reminded him of a good grappa, and i can see that-- there are a bunch of different blossoms inside-- very nice. The finish follows suit and ends clean.

Sorry this is a close out-- $9.99 for a Liter @44%, i call that a deal.
i haven't really found a drink that it 'sings' in but i will happily keep looking.

Good. I don't a lot of experience with agricoles, getting used to 'em. Not a lot of choice in Quebec, the most popular is St.James, and we ain't even getting the good ones. We have a few high end agricoles aged in France, by Chantal Comte : http://www.chateautuilerie.com/nos_v...ms.php?gamme=5. If you happen to stumble over them, indulge yourself.

Currently trying to finish my overproof (63%) Wray & Nephew. That stuff ain't for the faint of heart, that's for sure. Drinking with Coke, and it ain't so good. How do you drink your OP ?
