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 tried the Kraken, but could not get excited about it. I'm not a big fan of spiced/added flavor rums to begin with, and the Kraken did little to change my mind.
Good readily available rum. Best with coke. Easy drinker
Un gran especiado
My first sip lead to 3 more drinks straight up! Then the higher proof hit me. This beast shows it's tentacles after you drink, not before. My top recommended rum at work.
Uninspiring synthetic "spiced" rum
Good 1:1 with ginger and smooth enough to drink straight but not enough depth of flavour and very sweet. Overall a decent rum for the price tag.
Drink only with cola.
I tried this one for the first time at the 2011 UK Rumfest and i was somehow expecting more so i was a little bit disappointed but they mixed such tasty rum punches with it so that took some of the disappointment away. Anyway, it´s an ok mixer as i see it.
The first thing that strikes you is the bottle, it brings a original feel. The next thing is the color, it brings an expectation of fullness and bold taste. The best thing however is the taste. Smooth, bold, full tatse with hints of caramel and vanilla. In my option this is rum is best experienced on the rocks.
with Coke a little bit better than Oakheart.

Kraken is in my point of view only suitable as a mixer and is in the Captain Morgan ballpark.
Better than captain Morgan. But that goes for nearly every rum on the market. Pour this beast into your tea or a cup of coke. Meanwhile hide it somewhere so nobody can reveal your bad taste.
Incredible any way, neat, rocks, mixed, cocktails. Brilliant flavour with heaps of spice.
This one is not much better than Captain Morgan's black rum. Heavy aftertaste. The best thing about this rum is the bottle!
i don't normally like spiced rums but found the Kraken with its caramel background to be an easy tipple with coke. This ones not a sipper forme.
Great tasting rum for the value!- Mixes well with coke.
Super dark and heavy unique rum. I really enjoyed it, good for its price range. Would not drink it straight, but as a mixer with Coke it's very interesting.
Strong ok mixer
Very dark and very sweet, with notes of caramel, vanilla, cardamon & other spices, some say as well mint, but I'm not so sure. Goes very well with cola. Will not enchant people who prefer it dry.
Its ok, but im not big on super dark or spiced rums rums. Definitely has a unique flavor profile. Way better than anything Captain Morgan offers
I am not sure if I am a big fan of spiced rums... anyway this one is not bad but there is better I think for the same price. Quite like the bottle.
