Kraken Black Spiced rum

Kraken Black Spiced

Trinidad and Tobago | Spiced

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.

Firstly, if your in the market for a spiced rum, this choice will leave you satisfied.

This is this first rum I rate without actually buying the whole bottle. Had is several times, it is not unpleasant, but the rum body is flat and completely masked by sugar and spices. Similar to Captain Morgan Spiced Black.

My personal opinion and I don't want to insylt anyones opinion, is that this beverage should not be considered a premium rum at all. The volume of colour-caramel is just to high...

První závan vůně mne nemile překvapil svojí chemickou nasládlostí, pak jsem zjistil, že mne hodně ovlivňuje svíčka v pokoji, což bylo hodně špatně. šel jsem tedy vůni zkoumat před dům. Cítil jsem směs mírně sladkého ovoce, malinko vanilky, kůže a dřeva. Chuťově dosti jemný nasládlý rumík, s pro mne poměrně krátkým dozvukem. Nejspíše nebude patřit k mým TOP vzorkům, ale i tak se k němu budu rád vracet právě pro jeho zajímavou jemnost a příjemný pocit na jazyku. Přes to vše jej lze doporučit jako dobré pití.

This was better than I thought it would be. Sweet, but not a bad mix. As many other reviewers point out, this is definitely high sugar content with added flavoring. It is, however, clearly labeled as “spiced rum” and “blended with spice, carmel and other natural flavors”. They are not hiding anything, and the flavors are well balanced. Even better considering the prices is $15 for a bottle.

One of my favorite drinks, a little sweet but plenty of taste.

Many purists will tell you that kraken is no true rum. That the additives take away from the experience. While I would agree at higher price points, at lower prices I dont mind.

All I care about in cheap rum is mixability. Hence why I give kraken a 7/10.

One of my favorite rums to mix a dark and stormy or other simple/cheap cocktails with.

Rich on flavor (despite being artificial) and hard hitting on the alcohol content. A little of this stuff goes a long way.

Have downed a fair few of these bottles. Only issue is that it’s a little on the strong side for me (many hangovers) and there are better rums for a better price out there
