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.

As a traditionalist, I don't do spiced rums, but this one is the exception. Kraken is good enough to sip with a few rocks -- the spice doesn't overwhelm the "rum" and blends nicely with the senses. Not a bad starter rum for non-rum drinkers.

This is a solid dark rum. But it has sharp bite to it, and it just can't hold up against better aged rums. Good for your dark n stormy, but I think a bit overrated

This rum gets really mixed controversial reviews. Some love it while others seem to hate it with a passion. For me it is a good spiced black rum which works great in a dark & stormy but you can try it neat as well. Yes the spices are strong but it is a spiced rum ya know?

This rum is comes with a great thick flavour with hints of dark chocolate and caramel. its not that sweet but very pleasant to drink. The bottling and marketing are also great. Id recommend to give The Kraken a try especially mixed with coke or in cocktails.

There are probably a few better tasting rums. There are a few stronger rums. And there are a few cheaper rums. But Kraken is probably, hands down, the best balance of all three. Its quality is unmatched in its price range.

Sweet with a buttery smell, rich body. It was more than I hoped for.

Dangerously good! You will drink a good portion of the bottle before you know it! 47% alcohol but you down feel it coming... until the next morning ;)

good rum to mix with coke and a big bonus is the bottle design
