Flawed with a glimmer of hope
I’ve tried this one and wouldn’t recommend it for much of anything. Stick to the black spiced if you choose to go with kraken.
I usually get a Dark and Stormy when out to eat and always ask what the best dark rum they have is. Most everywhere it's Meyers...and I do not like Meyers, so recently tried one with Kraken at a restaurant that had this and the waitress recommended. Good thin she was cute, only thing this rum had going for it. Can't decide which is worse, Meyers ro Kraken, so I will call it a tie for equally bad.
I agree with other reviewers that this one (70 proof black label) is not as good as the 94 proof white label. There is too much added flavor, mostly vanilla, with no kick behind it. You can totally skip this one and only try the 94. If you are curious, buy a small sample bottle. After trying it, I’m really glad I didn’t buy a large bottle.
One last note... I do at least appreciate that there is no outright trickery here. Like others in this line, it is clearly labeled as “spiced rum” and “blended with spice, natural flavors, and carmel color.”
