Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Kraken Black Spiced Rum was first introduced by Proximo Spirits in 2010 . The dark rum is infused with 11 “secret” spices, caramel and other natural flavors.
The rum gets its name after the mythical sea creature 'The Kraken'. As legend has it, this terrifying creature attacked ships at sea during the 18th and 19th centuries - possibly for all the rum on board.
Not a bad dark spiced rum, but leans heavily on vanilla (and that's about all). It definitely lacks a complex flavor palette. I prefer Captain Morgan black spiced rum over this any day. It's not terrible, but there are better options out there. Surprised by how expensive this stuff is.
As spiced black rums go, it’s ok. I have other favorites. Definitely a mixing rum.
Eight with a good mixer. Seven with just coke. Easy to drink
Les arômes sont agréables, Mais un peu facile, un peux trop doux.
They have ruined this product with s
Too much sugar and caramel. Such a shame
Cannot drink neat. Great with Ginger-ale. Low end crowd pleaser.
Ром - напиток авантюрный и в этом роме достаточно авантюризма! Но, не путать с агрессией - она бывает только после водки! Тут речь о благородстве!) Будь смелее перед лицом морского чудовища и оно покорится тебе..!)
I gave him 4 and no less because I drank even worse :))
Really nice but but there’s better out there. Not so much a sipper for me. Not overly flavourful
Quite good but not overwhelming. Very good as a sipping rum, but also with ginger beer (Dark n stormy).
... unfortunately that is the best part. Way too heavy on the spices, especially clove which results on a taste that is bitter and strong on the alcohol. It may be better in some sort of mix, but I wouldn't know which one.
I’m a kid (I’m 45 but I can’t drink liquor strait) so I just mix. Kraken and A&W Creme Soda is my daily drink. I love the dark flavor and bite of this rum above all others.
Meget sød rom, med en behagelig smag. Mangler smag udover sukkeret.
Not bad, but the 94 proof has a harsh bite compared to the 80 proof, which is really smooth. Nice color. A little thin in body.
La bouteille, l’étiquette, la couleur ambrée et même le goût... en fait un rhum que devaient boire les pîrates et autres corsaires. Le goût est sur le caramel,doux, ce qui fait qu’il se boit facilement
Pur schmeckt der R mir nicht; mit Cola ist es besser; nicht der Burner
The Kraken is good to spike Rum & Cokes, but I still prefer the Appleton V/X overall (for an equivalent price).
Just too much honey for my tastes otherwise a solid sup.
Still the best mixing rum - with crushed ice, lime, and cola!
Too spicy, lacks balance, quite a mixture of things, and doesn’t give a good impression.
Tento rum pre mňa osobne samotný takmer nepitny. Vhodný maximálne do miešanych napojov. Je natoľko spiced,že sa vytráca rumova chuť. Na trhu je niekoľko fajn spiced rumov,ale tento podľa mňa medzi ne nepatrí.
Solid rum, one of the best around at this price. Great over ice or with some cola.
I had many trips to Cuba and always enjoyed Havana Club 7 yo. Up until now I did not try anything else except Cuban rum. Once I've brought from there Santiago de Cuba 11yo and have found it so smooth and delicius compared to HC. Since then I've discovered world is full of different rums ). Had tried 12 of them so far. And I will rate them comparing to HC as the base rated 6.
