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.
very dark. kinda thick. strong but is higher proofed. great mixer. tons of flavor.
As opposed to the great looking bottle and the nice presentation, the rum itself tastes quite chemical...
Tasty, strong but smooth. I usually mix with Coke or ginger beer.
Once you get over the fact that it looks and sounds cool, you realise that it is a super bad rum.
Not to sweet, not to dry, nice rum spiced for every day.
Mon premier rhum épicé. La bouteille est jolie. Le rhum est bien épicé mais j'attendais peut être un peu plus de caractère.
It is a cheap shot when you're out on the town, recommendable if you like me can't stand tequila. Very perfumed and sweet, but it doesn't matter when you're drunk.
Very unique spiced rum that takes some getting use to. Strong start with a peppery finish. I was disappointed and I will not add it to my bar
Nice bottle and Perfect for a twist of dark n stormy . Kraken is the best way to discover spicy rum
If this was a blackstrap rum, I would give it an 8, because it is very unique, has a beautiful color, and taste awesome. If you want a different type of dark and stormy, use Kraken and a not too gingery ginger beer. You don't want to overdo it with too much ginger and spices.
As a spiced rum, I give it a 6 for an overall score of 7. Spiced rum drinkers may add it to their collection for diversity for a small fee of $20, but at the end of the day it's a lightweight in comparison to other spiced rums. I don't actually taste 11 spices, but they well may be there. To some degree, it's like your amateur bartender's "Long Island Iced Tea"; you only taste 2 of the 11 ingredients he claims to have used and you're a little disappointed because you feel jipped (i.e. cheated, bamboozled, conned), but once it's said and done, that drink hit the spot.
Don't judge a book by its cover the great outside has disappointment on the inside.
Fijn rummetje, niets mis mee, eur 28..............
goeie rum smaakt lekker vooral in de cola prijs 28 euro
Couldn't even finish it. Maybe spiced rum isn't for me.
A big plus for the bottle design.
I think Kraken has a little more power in taste/spice the Capten Morgan Spiced Gold
Quality wise this comes close to that of your average captain Morgan's. Almost too sweet to mix with cola and way to artificial to ever drink straight up.
Kraken is a combo of rum with different spices. ..i noticed vanilla, cinnamon, prune, some Woods and maybe even pepper. Interesting to sip but with a raw piraty alcoholic burn to it.
the taste is a bit too spicey for me. But the bottle and label just look awesome
A couple of years ago I was blown away by this rum but since getting into sippers, coming back to it is not that great.
A bit medicinal tasting. It has that Dr. Pepper vibe with coke. I'd choose it over the captain on a night out
This should be in everybody's collection.excellent for sipping or with cola.
The kraken has to be my favourite spiced rum perfect for mixing but I can happily drink on the rocks with lime wedges I seem to be attached to the empty bottle's alsofor me it's perfect.
I fell for everything that this spice rum is. I'm sorry.
Not big on spiced, but was offered a glas (straight up) at a friend. Quite coconutty nose. Taste is very sweet, almost like cola, but its a little syntethic and ends very fast, and fades in to a sligthy alcoholic afterburn. Imagine it would be ok with ginger ale. Better than your regular spiced captain I suppose.
