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.

Good 1:1 with ginger and smooth enough to drink straight but not enough depth of flavour and very sweet. Overall a decent rum for the price tag.

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.

The Kraken Rum (the 94 proof white label) is the 2nd best spiced rum on the market IMHO...running just behind Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum. Great in a rum cocktail or even on the rocks, there’s something about the ovenproof black spiced rum that brings out the pirate in you! 🏴‍☠️ Rich and heavy with a in-your-face aftertaste, you’ll become a fan of this one! ⚓️

If it’s a rum and coke you can’t go wrong with kraken but can be a little sweet after a while

One of my personal favorites for rum and coke. Very heavy on the spice which is great for giving the cocktail that extra flavor. It also comes with a great looking bottle with real piratey vibes with sort of rope loops you can put your finger trough and wave around as you let your inner Jack Sparrow free.

A black spiced rum that can have quite a harsh after taste. Very sweet. Adding lime helps balance the flavour.
