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.
I tried this because I found it in a small bottle. I found it didn't have much of an aroma, maybe slightly sweet syrup. I was expecting a captain morgan nasty flavor, but I was pleasantly surprised. The spices are subtle and it actually sips decently. I got some nutmeg, vanilla, maybe some pepper? Makes an awesome rum and coke, and in a pinch isn't terrible neat or on the rocks.
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.
When you want the Best in Fake, Go with Kraken, atleast the additives are natural so they say. You could make you're own brew with a standard aged rum and add spices yourself and would probably be awesome but not many would so hence this market. Enjoy if it's your thing. I didn't mind this one but prefer my rum unadulterated and wouldn't buy again.
One of the first dark rums I tried. Whilst nice enough with coke I wouldn't suggest using this as a sipping rum. I always keep a bottle on the shelf, but have found myself drinking it less often in favour of nicer alternatives.
Very big flavor. You can sip this, but I wouldn't. Mixes well. Strong flavor, doesn't get lost in mixes. Neat bottle. It's got bite, an overproof rum, easy to get carried away with. Eventually the novelty wears off though, and the neat bottle ends up sitting on the shelf while you drink better rums.
As the title says: I find it very very close to Captain Morgan Black in that it is super sweet and comes with a strong vanilla flavor but for some odd reason this one gives me stomach ache if I drink too much. Something no other rum as done to me.
Would still highly recommend for rum & cokes.
I was at a friend's house who was serving kraken and coke. The coke couldn't mask the flavor. Tried some straight up and some over ice. Very empty and cheap taste. Tastes syrupy and leaves a strange taste in your mouth.
It´s disgusting bitter, poor taste. Not worth to buy it. Better to spend the money for some Appleton Dark Rum
The Bottle is nice, that all!
