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.
Cool bottle, cooler rum. Great with ginger or cola. Also good straight up. One of the better inexpensive darks.
Bit of a bite but generally smooth.

Kraken is in my point of view only suitable as a mixer and is in the Captain Morgan ballpark.
Better than captain Morgan. But that goes for nearly every rum on the market. Pour this beast into your tea or a cup of coke. Meanwhile hide it somewhere so nobody can reveal your bad taste.
This one is not much better than Captain Morgan's black rum. Heavy aftertaste. The best thing about this rum is the bottle!
Great tasting rum for the value!- Mixes well with coke.
Super dark and heavy unique rum. I really enjoyed it, good for its price range. Would not drink it straight, but as a mixer with Coke it's very interesting.
Strong ok mixer
I am not sure if I am a big fan of spiced rums... anyway this one is not bad but there is better I think for the same price. Quite like the bottle.
This is very good on the rocks with two wedges of lime squeezed into it - other than that I am not a big fan of spiced rums
Kracken is drinkable but really should be mixed. Not for sipping.
I enjoyed it but not probably wont get again.
My first black rum...not bad, but not outstanding.....or maybe the bottle confused my taste buds and made it taste better.
I actually prefer sipping this than mixing it. It has a good flavor and goes down pretty smooth. Mixing it with either ginger ale or coke just seems to overpower the drink.
Not a bad mixer with ginger beer
to mixed up in the flavour to be a rum, it's the wrong colour, available in the supermarket....and we not have much good to say about it....it might be tasty to a non rum head....best leave it on the shelf, unless attracted by the bottle...
Le Kraken est un rhum fun et festif, sans être exceptionnel ce rhum est plutôt bien réalisé et équilibré.
Not a fan of spiced rums , but my son got me a bottle and suggested I try it with Root Beer. Don't do it. Good in eggnog.
That's all I have to say about this one. Cool marketing bottle.
Not a bad mixer, but a bit too harsh to enjoy straight. You can tell there's additives in it ad that it hasn't been aged long.
Super rich and I prefer it with Ginger Ale and Lime. Keeping it simple and easy. Not much else you can do with this. It's really just a mixer, IMO.
This spiced rum isn't my thing! Maybe as a mixer...?
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.
