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.

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

It is fairly sweet, has a good spice taste and mixes well with cola.

For the price, you get a great sipping rum. A good cheap alternatieve to diplomatico rum

Příjemný rum, co neohromí, neprekvapí a ani neuškodí.

Maybe because of the 11 “secret” spices, I find it difficult to enjoy it, position it and rate it. Definitely not bland, but not as smooth as some other rums I like. I think I prefer to mix it, not to drink it neat.

Named for a sea beast of myth and legend, the Kraken Rum is strong, rich black and smooth.

I bought this bottle for a friend who loves the rum of the French West Indies. Disappointment, the Kraken is sweet, and too viscous for my taste.

Not much to say on this one aside from a decent mixer but not a sipper, spend more on a quality rum if you want it neat.
