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

Rum veramente sfizioso, è uno spiced rum molto scuro con sentore di caramello e vaniglia. Ideale per cocktail ma divertente da bere anche così.

I am not a fan of spiced rums, so that being said. This has a wonderful dark colour but the nose is not so. It has too much vanilla no spice. Not a sipper for me. I will have to try mixed to make Vanilla Coke.

It tastes great. If you like spiced rum around the holidays like me, you can't go wrong with this stuff.

Tres bon sur glace et en mélange mais fini par un goût agréable et corsé

Enjoyed the Kraken but with coach it is very very very sweet. It's easy on the palette.

It pours very dark brown in colour. Aroma is full of alcohol but has some sweetness, like vanilla. Flavour is of vanilla and spices, but I can't get the individual spices coming through. Nice with coke but not great on it's own. It's definitely not smooth as the wording on the bottle suggests.

94 proof that sneaks up on you if you're not careful. Great carmel taste that makes it easy to mix with diet coke.

Made for mixing and mass consumption. Better than Captain Morgan; but for mixing, you can’t beat good ol Sailor Jerry.

With the slogan "Unleash the Kraken", obviously borrowed from "Clash of the Titans", these guys seem to have a sense of humor as well as pocketbook. Dark molasses with very little spice, overall a decent rum. As I will sip almost any rum ( don't care for white) I sometimes do but recommend this one as a Dark and Stormy. Stands up to ginger ale and ice very nicely. The mouth feel is very thick and the overall flavor heavy. Would not do it in a Cuba Libre unless you want to double down on the caramel. Think I'll buy the T shirt.

This is a very decent spiced rum don't get me wrong. But it definitely has been blown out of proportion. Neat it is nothing special and mixed with coke it's fine and has a nice flavour and most of it is less artificial than the other cheaper spiced rums but I'd rather have a couple bottles of them over 1 of these.
