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
Given the high alcohol content and the colour I was expecting a very harsh rum that would demand some dedication in its consumption. Rather surprised to find a very encouraging aroma and a pleasant taste (if a little fiery on the way down). Perhaps a little over priced but often on promotion in the major UK supermarkets.
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.
O prezentare frumoasa ; o sticlă cu design clasic cu monstrul mitologic in prim plan.. dar cat conteaza sticla? Putin spre deloc ))
Un rom negru condimentat.. un gust echilibrat in sensul că tăria este bine ținută în frau de arome. Nici în miros nu se prea simte tăria .
In gust ceva caramel și vanilie, ceva scorțișoară întrerupte de valuri scurte de tărie și se termina cu un gust destul de lung de cireașa . Romul meu preferat.
Edit: dupa ce gusti Plantation XO nu mai poti sa i lasi nota 10 lui Kraken )) . ramane romul meu preferat totusi, PXO e scump ))
later Edit - dupa ce gusti multe altele clar nu mai poate ramane cu nota mare ))
1 1 Foursquere spiced - gust intens de scortisoara , pret imbatabil, rom de calitate , fara zahar
2 rumbullion spiced - echilibrat (cu exceptia dulcetii) , foarte scump (daca ar fi fost la un pret apropiat de forsquere as fi fost in dubii la alegerea locului meritat )) )
3 Kraken - destul de departe de primele doua dar un gust interesant care nu e deloc agresiv, destul de scump avand in vedere calitatea sa (e mai scump decat forsquere )))))))))))))) ) se plateste si reclama ))
Pur nicht genießbar, viel zu scharf und nicht harmonisch. Gemischt in cocktails oder mit Cola auf Eis sehr zu empfehlen, da hierbei die Gewürze ihren vollen Geschmack zeigen.
You can use it sipping bu I don’t recommend it. It’s better to use it as a mixer rum.
It’s too sweet for me, but I like the bottle.
Really great with coke! When drinking, I imagine I just swabbed the deck of a pirate ship named something like "Ariel's Fins" while the bow dips with the waves.
Now I’m new to rum drinking, so please take my review with a grain of salt if your avid rum drinker. I think this rum is pretty good. Does not taste like rubbing alcohol and makes great dark and stormys. And the price is right!
Was my first ‘proper’ bottle of rum recommended by a friend who has the kraken tattoos on him 😂 very smooth and easy to drink am now on a rum quest to try as many different rums as I can!
