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.
Tasty, but not quite great
This was my introduction to the rum world and my go to for years. Kraken has some very nice vanilla, caramel, and I'd say some dark chocolate notes to it, It's a great mixer and for me a very nice sipper. However it does have a little bit of bite (which for many can find too harsh) but for 47% I'd say smooth. The great thing about this rum is if you're working to build your palate, the high proof of this alcohol I have found will do it for you, overall I love this rum and it will forever be in my shelf and if your into harder stuff I'd say in yours too.
Side Note: The Mexican Kraken is 35% and a lot smoother and sweeter, if you can get access to it get it!!! 9/10
There is not a lot of choice in the liquor stores of Dunedin NZ so this rum is the the fall back go to when nothing else amazing is available
The color is dark amber,
The first flavour on the nose is alcohl, after cinnamon and other spices.
In the mouth sweet and spice, vanish fast an the alcohl leave some mark in the tongue. Is not possible consider this spirits as a rum, sorry
