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.

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

Not sweet, quite sharp, but the spices makes it interesting and I think that's the reason why I enjoy it.

Enjoyable dark rum. Smooth and easy drinking. Like the bottle. Not to much caramel flavor. Easy to be downed by the Kraken!!

I see many very low and high ratings and I see a lot of conflict and battles around this one. I agree with a lot from both sides. I understand judging it and not being able to appreciate it as sipping high rated rum as it’s a blend and loaded with flavors and spices. But still is a very flaborable sweet beautiful colored rum that will be enjoyed by a huge variety of people, will be easy to distinguish flavors compared to more complex rum and you can have a couple of more glasses or just drink it faster when you just want to have something accompanying your night than your usual sipping rum. It’s definitelt tasty to most even to the ones rating it low ;) . Just pour a glass and enjoy it as what it is and not as your most exclusive rum. Cheers!

Hodně vanilkový, sladký.
Připadá mi to trochu umělé.
S colou by to bylo asi dobré

One of my fav Black Spiced Rums, its not ideally a sipping rum. I leave that to a nice bottle of Diplomatico Reserve or El Dorado 15+ which are also common to find on store shelves. Kraken has a much harsher taste, and is best reserved for mixed drinks. For some reason I like it, but I treat it differently than a regular rum. Its something else.

Nice and sweet, doesn't feel like you're drinking alcohol!

Looks great and an excellent mixer with dry or coke. Very vanilla and sweet tasting when neat. Would recommend if you have a sweet tooth.

Really difficult rum to drink, don't drink anything but water before you start this rum. and take the time to let the flavors and spices find their way, you really need to learn to drink this, and still then it could be not you're taste.
