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 love this rum in a Cuba Libre. Bartender in Mexico perfected it even more. After pouring your rum over ice fill the remainder of the glass with half coke and the other half soda water. Welcome to the islands, Boys!
Bon petit rhum de début de soirée et d'avant repas, parfait pour débuter dans les dégustations de rhum et commencer sa rhumerie, à toujours avoir pour initier et régaler ses convives.
Épicé et sucré comme il faut. Et le design m'a aussi tout de suite plu.
Bref je le recommande
C'est fort! Le rhum agricole à 47 % et si tu n'est pas prudent le kraken détruira votre bateau. C'est une sorte de tour en bateau une boisson. Je l'aime et souvent c'est mon amusement quotidien d'été drink.it
Guter Rum den ich ab und zu auch gerne Pur oder mit einem kleinen Eiswürfel trinke. Am besten schmekt er mir aber mit Cola, der Drink bekommt so eine ganz spezielle Vanillenote, ähnlich wie beim Havana Club Especial.
What can I say. Lots of flowers sweet vanilla and chocolate some caramel spicy finish. It's to intense really not a sipper for me . More of an rum and coke cuba libre style
You can find Kraken just about any where I go, and for the price ($15-18 for a 750ml) you can't go wrong. It has a heavier taste than is complimented by a strong, delightful finish. Good mixer and not too shabby on the good ol' rocks. Good to have around in the liquor shelf. 7/10
They advertise a lot of hype around their product and it is definitely something out of the depths. Picked up a few sample bottles, as spiced rums are typically not my choice but I wanted to give it a try. Chilled one and attempted it neat. Sorry, this ain't a sipper! Too dark and too much burn and astringency. The flavor of cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg and anise were on point. Just the nose on this had the alcohol wafting from it. The remainder was added to cola and was an average drink. A bit spicier than Sailor Jerry. The second sample was used to make a Dark & Stormy. I am a wicked fan of ginger and have fallen in love with the sharp flavor a and the heat of ginger beer. This being the quintessential drink, I had to try. It was brilliant! The spice of the rum and that of the ginger beer were made for each other. Reminds me of a spicy mojito, catches in the back of your throat and tingles. Is this your everyday rum? Not mine, but I can see it finding a place on the shelf for making a rare drink here or there. And I do love that limited ceramic bottle....
I must admit, i'm a sucket for nice bottles, nice design and a good story. The website, the story, everything about the kraken is very cool. The whole marketing is well done. 9/10
The taste, well it's not aged, it's commercial and it's spiced, so it tastes exactly as you would think it would taste. Not a top rum, but i wasn't expecting that either. 6/10. Still a good 7/10 overall as i value taste more then looks
I bought the 750 of kraken because they had a special ceramic bottle. I needed a new rum to use as a mixer so figured, why not. I am Sadly disappointed with the flavor. It might just be that I am not fond of Spiced rums anymore but this just seemed to have a bitterness no matter what I mixed with. I think I will search out a different rum for future mixing.
Don't know how to feel about this rum. Drinking it straight up is both fantastic and way too much. It's sooo much vanilla and sweetness in there. The first few sips were amazing but after that the artifical vanilla flavour bacame too much. Great rum to mix with coke and you don't need to mix a lot of kraken in there either.
Mixed this with my go to lime and rocks. Very very good for a hot summer day. Delicious but steer very carefully, tis very potent.
