Tasty, but not quite great
Edges to a 9 due to the price point. I have a sweet tooth so love the caramel taste with vanilla that is evident and I find easy to drink neat which I can't say for Kraken. If you don't have a sweet tooth then Kraken would be more your taste.
I was surprised to see that some of the reviews of this aren't overly complimentary.
It's very sweet, which I suppose might put people off, but it's also incredibly easy to knock back.
I stumbled across this - literally; the case was in the middle of a dark aisle floor - and decided to try it. I’m not usually a fan of spiced rums, but this one has a very interesting flavor and a clean finish. Afterwards, I kept thinking about it and could still taste a honey - vanillla. Still thinking about it. Perhaps that’s the magic.
What a surprise this one was! Found it in B&M for £17.99 so couldn’t refuse. Very Kraken-esque and at half the price. Lovely stuff!
Avast! I do enjoy me a sweet sippin' rum, and this be a right dandy. She smells sweet, like sugary candy, with kola, cinnamon, and a hint of cloves. No oak or hint of aging. As for taste, cinnamon got the drop on me first, but on later sips, I got vanilla, then toffee, then cinnamon, then other spices. She smells sweet, but she not be tastin' TOO sweet, but then she finishes off like she were too sweet after all. This lass be all over the shippin' lanes in that regard. Smooth tho. Not much burn goin' down the hatch. This be a fine rum to share with the crew, or to keep on hand for those landlubbers new to rum...
"Packed with sweet flavours. It also has a very healthy base of sugar clearly added to it. Which is smoothing out the flavour of this rum."
