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.

Fairly potent spiced rum, mixes well but can be sipped too. I don't understand why people would buy Captain Morgan or sailor Jerry when this is readily available.

IMO not quite on par with "The lash" (which is rather hard to find but worth it if you can) or Brinley's shipwreck, but I always keep a bottle in stock.

Genuinely love this stuff! Defo up there in my top 3 spiced rums for sure. I really like the bottle and the brand aswell as the contents. Its very rich & spicy, yet suprisingly smooth at the same time. Great on the rocks or with a mixer.

artificial vanilla extract on the nose. taste is cloyingly sweet with vanilla and clove with an unpleasant artificial sweetener finish. This is really rum in name only, i don't get any classic rum notes from this when sipped neat. The only positive thing i can say about it is it goes ok in coke or dr. pepper but it is basically dumping flavored sugar on top of flavored sugar. Spend an extra $3 to get a real rum like Doorlys and spice it yourself.

I think I expected more from this.
It's not bad, not great either.
To syrupy, and to much of a liquorice flavor. Not something I'm looking for in a rum. Do prefer a more bacardi spiced flavor profile.

Ideal for drinks and mix. Very fresh and tasty. Rather sweet than spiced.

Overall, this is a people pleaser. It had been crafted to appeal to everyone. Sweet, spicy, smooth. Nothing in its character that would make you dislike it. But no elegance, no subtlety, nothing special.

Great dark rum for a reasonable price. Not real strong but not weak also
