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.
Tasty, but not quite great
Very smooth drink with a hint of spiciness. I only really got into a few years ago and haven't had the joy of finding some of the better rums out there. This one was tasty and ended up an empty bottle after around 40-50 mins. Would drink it again. Went well with Cherry coke
I had low expectations on this but was pleasantly surprised! It’s not amazing but there are many worse examples. The nose is full of sweet vanilla - it reminds me that way of CaptainMorgan Private Stock. Nothing terribly layered or nuanced, that’s for sure. On the palate, it’s sweet, with plenty of spice, and a strong, powdered hot chocolate note. There is also a hot burn of alcohol. It’s not a complex sipping rum but would be great with a Coke or in eggnog.
Personally, not my cup of.. alcohol. But I can see the appeal, it is unique, spicy and strong. Being used to smooth and mild tastes like, for example Brugal, or Mount Gay, this was too much. But I would certainly recommend trying this!
I like this with sodas. Dr Pepper, cherry sodas. The dark color also fits the taste. It takes a couple seconds for the aromatics to rise up.
