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.
Black spiced rums aren't my favorite type of rum, but Kraken Black Spiced Rum is not bad at all. Straight it's pretty harsh (94 proof and it shows), on the rocks it's a bit less so, but I wouldn't sip this anyway unless nothing else is available. This thing is for mixing, and it mixes pretty well in any drink where you might use black spiced rum-I personally love it with Coke because it has more flavor than white rums but does not overwhelm the drink with vanilla and/or caramel like most other spiced rums do. Smells syrupy. Taste-wise, it has somewhat noticeable sugar, some vanilla flavor and a strong alcohol kick.
This is a strong rum, but filled with spice flavors. The bottle is great, and adds a point here. A mixer in strong drinks for me.
My go to affordable everyday rum. Mixed with coke and fresh lime. My dirty secret/guilty pleasure is that I regularly mix it with Dr Pepper when at home.
