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.
Kracken is drinkable but really should be mixed. Not for sipping.
I enjoyed it but not probably wont get again.
My first black rum...not bad, but not outstanding.....or maybe the bottle confused my taste buds and made it taste better.
I actually prefer sipping this than mixing it. It has a good flavor and goes down pretty smooth. Mixing it with either ginger ale or coke just seems to overpower the drink.
Not a bad mixer with ginger beer
I have drank many spice rum, I prefer the Kraken
to mixed up in the flavour to be a rum, it's the wrong colour, available in the supermarket....and we not have much good to say about it....it might be tasty to a non rum head....best leave it on the shelf, unless attracted by the bottle...
Le Kraken est un rhum fun et festif, sans être exceptionnel ce rhum est plutôt bien réalisé et équilibré.
Not a fan of spiced rums , but my son got me a bottle and suggested I try it with Root Beer. Don't do it. Good in eggnog.
That's all I have to say about this one. Cool marketing bottle.
Not a bad mixer, but a bit too harsh to enjoy straight. You can tell there's additives in it ad that it hasn't been aged long.
This is easily my favorite rum. It's delightfully dark, has a little bit of a kick, and goes great with Diet Coke and a lime. Spicy, molasses-y, yet smooth. I always have to have a bottle around.
Inside that really cool bottle is a very drinkable Spiced rum. Nice vanilla and caramel notes with great spice. Very smooth and sweet. Definitely an easy drink. My only negative criticism is that its a little thin.
Super rich and I prefer it with Ginger Ale and Lime. Keeping it simple and easy. Not much else you can do with this. It's really just a mixer, IMO.
This spiced rum isn't my thing! Maybe as a mixer...?
As the rating would suggest, this rum is enjoyable, but not one I would shop for. As far as spiced rums go, it is definitely near the top f the list, although that doesn't say much. The redeeming factors of this product are the strong but smooth sweetness and the slightly less "spice" than most others in this category.
Okay, I love rum with a cork as a stopper, and being able to carry it on a finger like a pirate just adds to it. The rum itself has a good rich flavor, drinkable on the rocks, but mixes better.
J'avais entendu de tout et de rien sur ce rhum... J'ai été agréablement surpris de découvrir un produit épicé, certes, mais équilibré. Le nez est frais, la bouche est franche, mais la puissance des épices est réellement maîtrisée.
Seul bémol : il est très court en bouche !
the best way to drink it is withe Ginger ale :)
Release the Kraken! LOL Not a bad spiced rum.
A tasteless spiced rum. When it comes to spiced, most are over-powered by vanilla. An average spiced rum for mixers or sipping if oneself enjoys it.
Pleasant surprise. I thought all the hype would be just that. Much better than I expected, and with a nice little kick. Definitely would recommend giving it a try.
