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.
I won a bottle in a sailboat race. It’s not terrible definitely better than Captain. I keep it around for folks that like spiced rum.
Bought it for the cool bottle, stayed for itbeing a great mixer. Pairs extremely well with the more spicy ginger beers or some basic coke. Too sweet to sip though in my opinion . Good price for its quality.
I'm not a fan of pre-spiced rums and think they have limited use in craft cocktails. With that said, Kraken is by far the best reasonably-priced spiced rum for its purpose that I have had. Way better than Captain's, Sailor Jerry's, Admiral Nelson's, or any of the even worse versions of those out there.
It's not good by any stretch, but the slightly overbearing vanilla and 47% ABV make it a moderate upgrade for college rum and cokes and crappy dark n' stormies
I'm a big fan of this rum. It's dark almost completely black. I was surprised at the strong alcohol kick that is present in the aftertaste. But the flavour is great, it's sweet and I almost want to say I taste vanilla. Kind of reminds me of the taste of Bacardi 8. Great rum for the price. Most people would say it would be better enjoyed in a cocktail but I found that drinking it on the rocks to be a treat.
Strong, 47 %. Looking for the perfect sipping spice rum and this one fell short.
I prefer the bottle design to the taste, nonetheless this rum is not bad mixed with a lemonade.
It's generally a nice rum when mixed, however there are significantly better rum for the price range
i like it so far, its pretty good :) its not too strong and the taste goes down pretty easy
I'm new to darker rums, but I do love this rum! As always, I prefer my rum over ice with a healthy splash of Coke.
Not that good but it’s ok in a punch or in a Tiki grog.
Es un ron que me encanta, no es duro y ese dulzor de los especiados puede hacerme beber hasta el punto que ya todo es bueno
Very sweet. Lots of vanilla flavor but not much else, good for mixing heavily but not much else.
Its really sweet and the vanilla aroma is a bit overwhelming, but its a fun rum to sip on! I quess it can be used in drink mixes too if you are into that.
Ron muy especiado de color tostado oscuro, sabor fuerte y profundo retrogusto pero a la vez dulce y picante con notas de pimienta, yo lo tomó solo con hielo o en chupitos, no lo he probado en combinados pero dadas sus características veo difícil su combinación.
Ļoti patīk krāsa un dzēriena nianses, atšķirībā no citiem rumiem, kurus esam baudījuši, šis garšo vislabāk.
I am not a fan of spiced rums, so that being said. This has a wonderful dark colour but the nose is not so. It has too much vanilla no spice. Not a sipper for me. I will have to try mixed to make Vanilla Coke.
It tastes great. If you like spiced rum around the holidays like me, you can't go wrong with this stuff.
Tres bon sur glace et en mélange mais fini par un goût agréable et corsé
This has a unique taste that something's perfectly hits the spot
Enjoyed the Kraken but with coach it is very very very sweet. It's easy on the palette.
It pours very dark brown in colour. Aroma is full of alcohol but has some sweetness, like vanilla. Flavour is of vanilla and spices, but I can't get the individual spices coming through. Nice with coke but not great on it's own. It's definitely not smooth as the wording on the bottle suggests.
94 proof that sneaks up on you if you're not careful. Great carmel taste that makes it easy to mix with diet coke.
