Kraken Black Spiced rum

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.

Kraken is in my point of view only suitable as a mixer and is in the Captain Morgan ballpark.

Korenisty, tmavy druh rumu, s vyraznou chutou a kratkou dochutou. Vanilka, klinceky skorica to je zaklad.

Smooth chocolate taste makes it unique within the rums I tried..!

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.

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)

Ottimo profumo ma al gusto è un po' troppo forte. Non è male ma al suo prezzo si trova di meglio

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.

Best spiced what I have had. I like it straight. Some times with ice

Well this spiced rum is made for mixing. I enjoy it with coke, ginger ale or ginger beer, but it also works neat.

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

This is a true pirates rum. A lot of flavour, although from added spices. A perfect rum for mixing and a decent rum for sipping.

Rhum épicé avec un petit arrière goût caramélisé. Pas aussi sucré qu'un don papa mais reste un rhum accessible en bouche.

Sweet, not balanced. The kind of rum that you leave for guests

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.

This is what I keep around for mixed drinks. It's a bit sweet for my taste, but it performs admirably in a cocktail.

...mais surtout en cocktail. Pure, la version européenne est vite écoeurante, même si l'ajout de caramel lui donne une belle couleur.

Dark, very easy to mix and delicious with cola summer fun drink
