The Irish Encounter is a fun frozen cocktail that is similar to a Pina Colada, only different. You will find in this drink a mix of banana, coconut, Irish cream, and rum and it is a delicious mix that will cool you down on the hottest of days. While another rum will work in this drink, I think you will find that the unique notes, particularly the citrus, of Pyrat XO Reserve are a nice accent here. Also, make sure that you blend this one up until the ice is nice and smooth for a better drinking experience.
