Kraken Black Spiced rum

Kraken Black Spiced

Trinidad and Tobago | Spiced

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.

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.

Dark, very easy to mix and delicious with cola and a splash of grenadine! Watch out, it's a bit higher alcohol content then most spiced rums but way smoother. Very good taste in my opinion, great mixer. Pick up a bottle and enjoy

My friend and I tried to power through a small glass each of this stuff. It was truly awful!

This is a very harsh rum, good for "Customers" as my mom used to say, who visit and want to mix it with something. Although once in awhile I will take a swig and act like a Pirate with the crinkling face and all... Not on my good list...

This one is unbelievably amazing, it's not too expensive and it tastes absolutely amazing, straight and mixed.

Its easily the best presentation and the flavor is rich and drinks like a much more expensive rum

The rum is heavily colored to dark brown, almost black hue. In the glass, it leaves thick, viscous legs.

The nose is full of licorice, with hints of wet bark and mint candy.

The taste is very sweet, more licquorice, honey, maple syrup, herbs and finally eucalyptus with a nasty, aspartame-like chemical aftertaste.

The mouthfeel is oily and cloying, änd the finish is short and rather unpleasant, with lingering chemical aftertaste.

This drink was obviously designed to be drowned in a jug of cola, but even so, it tastes more like Jagermeister than rum.

Too sweet, must have colouring in it to make it that black. Wouldn't buy again and I wish people would stop giving it to me.
