Strong, bold black rum, very good flavor and alcohol content. This rum finishes smooth without the burn for me.

Familiar spiced rum aromas. A bit harsh neat with a warm and slightly rough edge. Sweet vanilla and caramel confine this to the "with coke " department. I'm a fan so ok for me

This rum attempst to cash in on the Kraken name, it's an okay Black spiced, but the flavor is lacking. I tasted more licorice than vanilla. Not a deal breaker, but nothing to write home about.

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.

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.

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.

Very sweet with strong caramel and what I guess could best be described as a very sweet vanilla. Maybe a hint of what reminded me of chocolate candied cherry.

In the mouth, comes on very sweet, very thick and syrupy, and surprisingly very smooth. The spiciness kicks in with some oak on the finish, but still pretty smooth. To me though, it seems the smoothness comes only as the result of sugar.

I tried looking this up on the added sugars list but it isn't on there. I'm guessing based on the sweetness there is a lot of sugar added to this rum. While smooth, unless you are into sipping maple syrup, this rum is too sweet to enjoy except as a mixer. At that it does a pretty decent job. In Coke with a splash of lime juice it did very well. But I'd buy Kraken over this.

Not your usual spiced rum that overpowers in vanilla... Suttle and clever in flavour but still a mixing rum

Like a mix between Kraken and Rebellion. Nice very sweet flavour, well spiced with a warming aftertaste.

Initially tried it on its own and found it to have a strong burnt taste that was hard to get down. I enjoyed the vanilla in it tho and found that when mixed with coke it tasted like good cream soda.
