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
I won a bottle in a sailboat race. It’s not terrible definitely better than Captain. I keep it around for folks that like spiced rum.
Bought it for the cool bottle, stayed for itbeing a great mixer. Pairs extremely well with the more spicy ginger beers or some basic coke. Too sweet to sip though in my opinion . Good price for its quality.
I'm not a fan of pre-spiced rums and think they have limited use in craft cocktails. With that said, Kraken is by far the best reasonably-priced spiced rum for its purpose that I have had. Way better than Captain's, Sailor Jerry's, Admiral Nelson's, or any of the even worse versions of those out there.
It's not good by any stretch, but the slightly overbearing vanilla and 47% ABV make it a moderate upgrade for college rum and cokes and crappy dark n' stormies
I'm a big fan of this rum. It's dark almost completely black. I was surprised at the strong alcohol kick that is present in the aftertaste. But the flavour is great, it's sweet and I almost want to say I taste vanilla. Kind of reminds me of the taste of Bacardi 8. Great rum for the price. Most people would say it would be better enjoyed in a cocktail but I found that drinking it on the rocks to be a treat.
I'm new to darker rums, but I do love this rum! As always, I prefer my rum over ice with a healthy splash of Coke.
