This rum is nothing spectacular but it's totally decent. It's lower proof and less intense/less flavorful than the original Kraken. It's a little more smooth than the original Kraken as well. Ultimately, it's still a mass produced, mediocre rum, but it beats Captain Morgan (at the same proof) all to hell. It's easily worth a shot at a bar for the casual rum drinker.

I was krakens top guy. I was convinced I was like 2% of their annual income, but then they dropped this thing and ... It's a mess in my opinion. For reference, their base kraken was one of my favorites, and the lower proof kraken black was a good option for nights where I wanted to keep my wits about me, but have more than a single drink. This though? This just tastes like rubbing alcohol and harsh spiced rum had a baby. It may be good in different cocktails? But stay away if you are looking for something to sip or a simple rum/diet Coke.

Sugar: 25GPL. It's a toned down version of the original. It's has less spice and seems to be more on the vanilla side of the taste profile. The Kraken spice is still there but it's less pronounced and would get lost in a fruit punch, so I would say it's good for those who like Kraken and Coke. It's drinkable on it's own straight up but I would prefer it over ice.
It's a cheap and cheerful spiced rum. There are better ones out there.

I had a curiosity of this rum. I bought a bottle and while I drank it, not my favorite. Back to original spiced for me.

Not as intense as the original Kraken but still pretty good. Makes a decent cuba libre.

If you like Kraken dark, you will hate this stuff. Don't get me wrong, it is not horrible, it just doesnt have the nose, depth, flavor or punch of the dark siblings. It is kinda sorta midline acceptable straight with one large ice cube, as long as you dont have high expectations. Any ice melt at all and it quickly dilutes into oblivion. It ranks pretty high on the "meh" scale for me. My initial thought, and still clearly thinking after most of a bottle gone due to its relatively low alcohol content, is that this the rum you mix for drinks with people who dont like rum.
