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.

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.

This is a good Rum that is found almost everywhere and usually well priced.

The bottles look amazing and the taste is good.

Nice dark spiced rum for good price and it comes in nice bottle, worth for a try.

One of the most popular, but WAY over-rated. Tastes gritty, like the black colouring is made from ashes.

Looks like water which comes out of my mouth after eating dutch liqorice. Smell is okay but not great. Taste is pretty okay. Mixed with coke is a great combo

At first this rum was a little on the harsh side when sipped straight. But with each revisitation; neat, with a splash of water or more, or mixed, the taste improves by revealing its great depth of subtle flavors to the palate. The flavor persists when diluted to give a softer, subtle taste. I am surprised by my growing appreciation for this rum and will continue to keep this label in stock.

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.
