Kraken Black Spiced rum

Kraken Black Spiced

Trinidad and Tobago | Spiced

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 Kraken. If you're making cocktails, or drinking your rum with a mixer, Kraken and Sailor Jerry are my two favourites.

Not a rum to drink neat or on the rocks given its relatively potent flavours.

Suggest mixing one part Kraken with one part blackcurrant cordial (Ribena) for an after-dinner dessert!

Nice strong rum with a bitter sweet taste. Good dark color and a strong alchol/barrel smell.

While this isn’t the “best” rum in the punches above its weight class is every respect. You can sit back and drink it all night by itself or you can make any spiced rum cocktail. Hell, you can throw it in a frozen daiquiri machine and it will be the best pina colada you’ve ever had. If it’s not on your bar you’re fucking up.

Ich trinke ihn gerne mal zwischendurch. Der Preis ist absolut in Ordnung und manchmal darf es ja auch mal etwas „rauher“ sein.

Have tried a few of the more affordable rums, hands down this tops them. Not a sipping rum for me but definitely the BEST mixer. Goes down smooth and doesnt obliterate your mixed drink. Lovely! Try this over Capt, bacardi or sailor, you wont regret it!

Quite like this as a mixing rum as it doesn't contain as much artificial sweetness and vanilla of other mainstream rums like Captain Morgan.

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.
