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.
This one is not much better than Captain Morgan's black rum. Heavy aftertaste. The best thing about this rum is the bottle!
Su nombre, botella y color lo hacen llamativo además con su sabor lo hacen exótico!
Not a bad rum could be a bit smoother, but it is not a bad drink
Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: neupřesněný Karibik
Aroma: Příjemně uhlazená, sametová vůně s broušenou kůží, melasou, lesním medem, marcipánem a kávou. (85 b)
Chuť: Chuť zprvu lehce nasládlá, kávová, pendreková, v dozvuku spíš do sucha. Zakončení je hodně melasové. (83 b)
Shrnutí: Solidní kořeněný rum, o vzorek od Nethara jsem musel bojovat, protože jsem dal ochutnat přítelkyni a tu velmi zaujal.
This one is fantastic for mixing drinks. Great price and okay taste.. Didn't like it as a zipping rum but as a mixer it´s the bong.
Kraken is a fairly polite sipper for me. The sweet vanilla and caramel taste is pretty much what I look for when I want to sip some rum. I do like a bit more attitude from my rums usually though. There isn't a harsh bite on the finish at all. I found it to be a very polite and smooth rum for sipping. There isn't a lot of depth to the flavor but a dash of water helps to bring out what there is. No bold spices to speak of. It's pretty smooth honestly. Not much burn at all. There are rums I like better, but I do like Kraken quite a bit.
A lovely smooth spiced dark rum with caramel aftertaste.
had een mindere rum verwacht voor de prijs. Smaakvol en kruidig.
Mon premier rhum épicé. La bouteille est jolie. Le rhum est bien épicé mais j'attendais peut être un peu plus de caractère.
Nice bottle and Perfect for a twist of dark n stormy . Kraken is the best way to discover spicy rum
Fijn rummetje, niets mis mee, eur 28..............
goeie rum smaakt lekker vooral in de cola prijs 28 euro
the taste is a bit too spicey for me. But the bottle and label just look awesome
A couple of years ago I was blown away by this rum but since getting into sippers, coming back to it is not that great.
A bit medicinal tasting. It has that Dr. Pepper vibe with coke. I'd choose it over the captain on a night out
The kraken has to be my favourite spiced rum perfect for mixing but I can happily drink on the rocks with lime wedges I seem to be attached to the empty bottle's alsofor me it's perfect.
I fell for everything that this spice rum is. I'm sorry.
Not big on spiced, but was offered a glas (straight up) at a friend. Quite coconutty nose. Taste is very sweet, almost like cola, but its a little syntethic and ends very fast, and fades in to a sligthy alcoholic afterburn. Imagine it would be ok with ginger ale. Better than your regular spiced captain I suppose.
The first thing that strikes you is the bottle, it brings a original feel. The next thing is the color, it brings an expectation of fullness and bold taste. The best thing however is the taste. Smooth, bold, full tatse with hints of caramel and vanilla. In my option this is rum is best experienced on the rocks.
with Coke a little bit better than Oakheart.
nose : sweet ,marzipan,licorice,spicy
taste : sweet ,marzipan, vanilla, spicy ,alcoholic
excellent mixing rum , for me
i don't normally like spiced rums but found the Kraken with its caramel background to be an easy tipple with coke. This ones not a sipper forme.
Very dark and very sweet, with notes of caramel, vanilla, cardamon & other spices, some say as well mint, but I'm not so sure. Goes very well with cola. Will not enchant people who prefer it dry.
Its ok, but im not big on super dark or spiced rums rums. Definitely has a unique flavor profile. Way better than anything Captain Morgan offers
I have drank many spice rum, I prefer the Kraken
Inside that really cool bottle is a very drinkable Spiced rum. Nice vanilla and caramel notes with great spice. Very smooth and sweet. Definitely an easy drink. My only negative criticism is that its a little thin.
Okay, I love rum with a cork as a stopper, and being able to carry it on a finger like a pirate just adds to it. The rum itself has a good rich flavor, drinkable on the rocks, but mixes better.
