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 bought it because of the bottle, nicely shape, so pirate-ish. Very dark in the glass, cherry aroma being dominant, with a slight bitter overtone. Tastes good in the mouth, you can feel the caramel taste, pleasant in the throat.
What I like about this rum, they admit that caramel was added. For its price definitely a good choice among many spiced rums. I recommend it in cocktails, best on the rocks, but also stand-alone is fine.
My daughter bought me this for my birthday, a rather nice rum with an interesting taste, quite different to the rums I usually drink but would definitely recommend it.
As a title, If you want try to taste everything buy this bottle ! It is not a typical spiced rum bitter, It's sweet and easy to drink
No drink is hurt by the use of this spiced rum as a substitute for any other. I'm not the spiced rum lover in my house but my wife is quite fond of the flavor in this rum. This is a step up from the Captain Morgan Original Spiced that also sits on my bar shelf.
Easy to drink sweet and smooth rum. Aroma honey, brown sugar and taste full of cherries.
Taste is very close to the elixir (Legendario for example)
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.
