Trivia: "Pyrat" was the internal code name for the BMW E82 1M (featuring 'Valencia Orange Metallic' as signature color).

"Before the 1 Series M Coupe was given its official designation, BMW M referred to the model internally as «Pyrat», allegedly because of the engineers' affection for a spiced rum of the same name"
"Above all else it's a car that allows the M Division to fly the pirate flag once again within BMW and in some ways the automotive world. And it all sort of makes sense considering the code name for the 1M is «Pyrat». A name inspired by late nights creating the car followed up by later nights drinking Pyrat Rum"

Interesting. I always thought Pyrat XO was a spiced rum as opposed to a dark rum. Of course, also opposed to the thinking that it's a rum flavored orange liqueur 😉

I've had that a number of times and it is excellent for the price. I haven't seen it in Canada for a few years now. The last bottle I had was unopened and was the only thing that was broken during our move 3 years ago into our present home. I had a moment of silence for the loss.

Thanks. Not sure why it came out sideways. It shows straight on my end.

Last Saturday night in the Texas Hill Country.
Dill Pickle Moonshine.
I had to take a bite off of the pickle.

I'm on keto currently and these are really flavorful compared to white claws or anything similar and low carb! Also the sunny D seltzer 😅

Have you done the black barrel version yet? Within a dollar or so of anejo, and even better in my opinion. Very nice for a diabetic Cadillac.

Not yet! I usually just sip on Hornitos tequila reposado or mix it into a cocktail. I'll definitely try the black barrel version soon!
