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.

Tasty, but not quite great

It's not bad for what it is. I'm not really a soft drink-liquor-mixing kinda guy, but i use this to make my guests a rum&cola if they request one. I find these way better than e.g. Bacardi or Havana club. It's good but it's nothing to be blown away by.

Nice rums are still not frequent sites in UK pubs. They do usually have a bottle of this knocking around and I'm happy to drink it. Neat or on the rocks. I have a bottle at home too, because it's a nice drink if you are entertaining non Rum-snobs 😁 I hate it with mixers.

Kraken was my introduction to rum and back then, i thought it was the greatest drink on the planet and never even knew about all the more expensive and better rums you can buy online. I always picked it when i went out clubbing because i preferred it to Captain Morgans which is normally the only other rum along with Bacardi that is found in my area. I usually drink it straight but sometimes with ginger beer too and had been drinking it for around 3 years thinking it was the top rum. Now that i have experienced many rums, the taste of Kraken has become far less enjoyable. I still like it and have fond memories of it but i doubt i will buy a bottle ever again thanks to some of the incredible rums i have tasted recently plus it also gives an earth shattering hangover! The taste is quite unique but very sweet, with a strong aftertaste.

Very strange flavour - spiced with burn in throat.

Wouldn’t drink it on the rocks but makes a tasty mixed drink

Good dark rum with an almost molasses taste to it. Not really a sipping rum but definitely good in coke, dr.pepper or egg nog

Despite high alcohol content a bit sharp on tongue, good taste, however could be better. In this price range I wouldn't like to have added sugar and color additives.

I'm not a spiced rum fan. I tried this at a friend's house and I was pleasantly surprised. It's very nice, smooth, tasty, but not what I'd consider a real Rum.
