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.
Great rum. I enjoy it most with a mixer, something such as Pepsi Max Cherry. Not a fan of it neat. This is always a rum I look out for when at a bar. Safe Choice.
Not a sipper at all. But is very good with coke and some lime juice.
I love this rum, but it is definitely not for everyone. Most say that it's a great mixer but is poor neat, but personally I love it neat. I highly recommend picking up a 50 ml bottle just to try it before going for a $20+ 750 ml bottle.
Sufficient but nothing special. Simple rum for beginners or to offer It if you have many guests at a cheap price
Rhum un peu fort en goût sans trop de saveur. Dommage
That’s what I use The Kraken for, Dark n Stormy, Nothing Else 😊
Not a fan of this. I suppose it is ok for mixing with coke but try drinking it alone and you won’t finish your glass.
Didn't realise how strong it was to begin with- soon realised. Delicious however you have it
My gateway drug into the rum world! First tried it at a rock festival here in a cocktail and loved the gingery goings on. Not a substantial amount of depth but a decent drinker none the less
Find this too harsh, too flavoured / too spiced and just not that enjoyable.. Perhaps it works well as a mixer but I didn't enjoy one thing about trying it neat.
Un bon rhum assez sucré et accessible. Peut-être mélanger avec du coca
Good in overall but I do not like the taste. Probably something in that 'secret' spices doesn't play well with my stomach :-)
Too much sugar. Never thought l'd say this but try Captain Morgans , it's a better alternative.
Good tasting spiced rum
Nice in mojitos
Bit sweet as a rum
Lost the molasses taste
You can just this time. If you’re still at work or something I’ll be back.
An average spiced rum that can spice up your rum coke
It’s got the power of the kraken but tastes like seahorse piss.
If you are looking for a substitute for Captain Morgan, this is a good one. Decent flavor profile of some spices and vanilla. The nose is a bit harsh and smells almost too sweet. I enjoyed it with pineapple and it was rather tasty.
Funkar med viss tveksamhet att dricka utan cola.
Har viss karaktär men lite populistisk och inte en rom som man börjar med när man ska lära sig.
Easy to drink.Tasty, sweet. But too sugary. Too much caramel.
Even for a spiced rum, this is pretty gruesome stuff. Heavy artificial taste notes, and tons of sugar (and caramel colouring). NO.
I’ve not really tried much rum before, I recently had some in a cocktail (which I liked) so I decided to get some of this. I’ve not got much to compare it to but I like it a lot. I’m drinking it with tonic, it reminds me a bit of Jack and Coke.
Sweet yet rich, smooth with subtle flavours. But not the best of the black spiced rums as it is does not quite provide enough flavour to make up for the richness.
On it's own this one tastes quite raw and gets no more than 3 stars, but Kraken is not meant to be enjoyed by itself. Mix it with Coke, Dr. Pepper or Old Jamaica (ginger beer) and it reaches the sky! Truly awesome spiced rum that has a great value for the money.
