Similar to Kraken but smoother finish one of my favorites! Love it neat!
I actually preferred this one neat rather than mixed. As soon as you crack this one open you detect a moderate maple aroma and hints of vanilla greet your tongue. A decent price for the product as well.
I believe everyone that comes across this will see it as a discounted kraken. If you were to do a blind test you would easily be able to differentiate between the two. For price it's really not a bad rum.
I came across this one next to kraken and saw it was cheaper and came with a 2 liter of Coke and a shot glass. So why not? It seemed very similar to kraken but taste and aroma told me they were different. I didn't get swept away with the sweet smell that seeps out of kraken. It indeed had that aroma I pictured potions from Harry Potter would emit. For price taste wasn't that bad. not a kraken but for a black spiced rum I think it was enjoyable.
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.
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.
