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.

It’s got the power of the kraken but tastes like seahorse piss.

If you are looking for a substitute for Captain Morgan, this is a good one. Decent flavor profile of some spices and vanilla. The nose is a bit harsh and smells almost too sweet. I enjoyed it with pineapple and it was rather tasty.

Funkar med viss tveksamhet att dricka utan cola.
Har viss karaktär men lite populistisk och inte en rom som man börjar med när man ska lära sig.

Easy to drink.Tasty, sweet. But too sugary. Too much caramel.

Even for a spiced rum, this is pretty gruesome stuff. Heavy artificial taste notes, and tons of sugar (and caramel colouring). NO.

I’ve not really tried much rum before, I recently had some in a cocktail (which I liked) so I decided to get some of this. I’ve not got much to compare it to but I like it a lot. I’m drinking it with tonic, it reminds me a bit of Jack and Coke.

Sweet yet rich, smooth with subtle flavours. But not the best of the black spiced rums as it is does not quite provide enough flavour to make up for the richness.

On it's own this one tastes quite raw and gets no more than 3 stars, but Kraken is not meant to be enjoyed by itself. Mix it with Coke, Dr. Pepper or Old Jamaica (ginger beer) and it reaches the sky! Truly awesome spiced rum that has a great value for the money.

I appreciate the PR department at Kraken, but I’ll more likely than not, go for another spiced rum in the future.

Easy to drink but yet not of easy virtue. I find it mature in a way, rather well balanced and welcome.
