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 have tasted it thank to my friend, he prefered it from Morgan Black Spiced. He made a mistake, it is to sharp for me.
tried this both straight and with coke, prefered it as a mixer. easy to drink but a tad sickly after a few. its mellow with a caramel after taste and hints of chocolate
Great choise for dark'n'stormy, also with coke and on the rocks. However Goslings still being my favority.
The bottle and the cracken story is just awesome.
Ok, I have just 2 1/2 words for this rum..... "Rum N Coke". Not bad if you are looking for a rum and coke rum but not a sipping libation...
The bottle is great :-) Pretty specific taste, vanilla essence is just too much for me. Perhaps better to mix it with something else. 6.5/10
OK, now the bottle is almost empty and I have to say, it's actually very good.
I was given a bottle of this for my birthday, tried a glass straight and i can say I will not do that again.
It's ok in coke, but then again there are better choices. I'll use it when friends come over ( evil laugh ).
Stark karamellig in Geruch und Geschmack, super in Cola zum Mischen, wird aber auf Dauer zu penetrant um auf einer Party nur bei ihm zu bleiben.
Title pretty much says it all. My tastes run towards flavours of coffee, chocolate, and caramel. Kraken definitely has them in the forefront, but then the alcohol punches you in the face. When mixed in enough Coke, it adds a complimentary dimension of flavour. I can see the potential as a mixer or in baking, but my search for a sipping rum continues.
I usually steer clear of spiced rums as they wind up watered down to 70 proof thereabouts. I bought a bottle for someone as a Christmas gift, and never got a taste. Then I saw the label and knew it wouldn't be watered down. I love the color, reminds me of some beers I have made. A little sweet, the way I like it (hello, Zaya) I have no idea what the spices are, but they work. I just opened the bottle, so I'm kinda looking forward to how it breathes. I reserve the right to come back and edit this.
So I'm back to edit, months later. It's hard to believe this is 94 proof as it's very smooth. I reduced it from 8-7, as I believe the spice is covering up the alcohol, and after a few followup tastings, I think I'm getting a certain "blandness " I didn't pickup before. I like this rum as a sipper, but there are other rums i like more
Release the Kraken!!!
So this rum is dark and sweat (with caramel notes) and has some spiciness to it but not as much as one would expect for a "Spiced Rum", I've never had a bad bottle, but I've never had a great bottle. If half bottle ratings were available I'd give it 6.5...but it's not quite a 7.
