Strong, bold black rum, very good flavor and alcohol content. This rum finishes smooth without the burn for me.
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.
Like a mix between Kraken and Rebellion. Nice very sweet flavour, well spiced with a warming aftertaste.
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.
Nice and smooth one of the nicest spiced rums i have had the pleasure to try
Very similar in taste and looks to kraken,
I enjoy both, sweet rum but with a treacle taste
I stumbled upon this rum in a local liquor store, and decided to take a chance on it, even if it wasn't on RumRatings. I was pleased by its smoothness and sweetness, and have enjoyed it more than once just to sip. But I love it with ginger beer, a great tropical-ish drink.
I found this one nestled in between the Captains Dark and The Kraken. It seemed like s knock off but the price was right. It is actually quite good, a bit sweet and heavy on the vanilla. It makes a satisfying beverage on a budget. The graphics on the bottle are fun and interesting as it challenges you to see two different pictures at one time, possibly aided by a few drinks to free your minds eye. This to me is a good rum to introduce to your friends who don't drink rum.
Similar to Kraken but smoother finish one of my favorites! Love it neat!
My favorite black spiced rum among Captain Morgan and Kraken
Sweet spiced rum. You can feel chocolate, carmel and for me little cinnamon. Great color and really good price
First rum I bought that wasn't some random carriage for mixing. Really smooth and silky dark rum. I did drink it neat. If mixed with coke it got way too sweet in my opinion.
N- Cola candy, vanilla and coconut layered. Creme caramel and milky white coffee. Roasted almond coated with cocoa powder. Recognizable fragrant and not overwhelm with sugar like some other brand does. (19/25)
P- Acceptable sweetness with light texture letting the usual vanilla and spices to come thru effortlessly, notable assam-boi and preserved calamansi juice for extra dimension. (20/25)
F- Short-medium, like the zing of salted calamansi freshness. (19/25)
Weighted Rate- 78pt

Smooth, sweet and soothing a bit classier than kraken, much cheaper which is a bonus. Love the cola finish and sweetness is just about right especially on a long warm summer evening.
A Nottingham Rum Festival try. Lovely spiced black number
While not as good as Kraken or Captain Morgan (imo), it will do in a pinch. Very sweet caramel flavor.
Black magic is very like morgans black spiced and the kraken, spicy fruity, lovely with Coke and a slice of lime
Creamy. Heavy on vanilla. A nice allspice burn. Finishes out with a little kola nut. Surprised me.
Tried it neat. Chocolate, caramel,vanilla and cinnamon are the dominant notes of this rum. Fairly sweet but super smooth. Decent for the price, it is a better sipper than the Kraken rum but a worse mixer.
This rum is a great addition to the collection. It starts off sweet, middle is a oak taste and then ends with a rich finish of spices that will leave your taste buds tingling. If you like to try something different than the norm than I would suggest grabbing a bottle of black magic for your collection.
Dark, sweet, with strong accents of caramel, vanilla and cynamon, this rum is a very fine budget version of Kraken, quite similar in taste and overall flavor.
Doux et des notes prononcées de bonbon caramélisé avec un peu de vanille. Plaisant au palet mais on s’éloigne de la cane à sucre.
A blast of HEFTY caramel sweetness on the tip of the tongue. Washes to a toffee finish. Notes of caramel on all levels. No other real way to describe it. Very unique. Quite interesting.
I haven't had Kraken in a long time, but since they are adjacent on the shelf, this is what one is supposed to assume, I assume. It is quite good, easy to drink. Even good for sipping. Not as sweet as some of the "candy rums" but fairly well balanced. Almost seems to be geared to getting drunk. Woke up this morning and that seems to be what happened.
I like it. Due to the events of the day, I really needed to unwind. Did that and more.
