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.
I’m confused by the range in the reviews. I’m not sure if the product varies batch to batch but when I tried it it was overproif and vanilla forward. I found it sweet, vanilla rich and enjoyable. I could sip on it neat with a little burn during the sip. I’m. It sure I’d enjoy in a cocktail as I’d imagine the vanilla would overpower the cocktail. All in all a decent flavored/spiced rum.
As the rating would suggest, this rum is enjoyable, but not one I would shop for. As far as spiced rums go, it is definitely near the top f the list, although that doesn't say much. The redeeming factors of this product are the strong but smooth sweetness and the slightly less "spice" than most others in this category.
the best way to drink it is withe Ginger ale :)
Release the Kraken! LOL Not a bad spiced rum.
A tasteless spiced rum. When it comes to spiced, most are over-powered by vanilla. An average spiced rum for mixers or sipping if oneself enjoys it.
This is my favorite black spiced rum with Coke.
Few spiced rums I like, this one I love
