Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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
As much hype as Kraken gets, as far as Spiced Rums go, it's simply one dimensional and boring. The spices seem flat and the the overall flavour of the rum is simplistic. There are far better spiced rums on the market at the same price point which rank far higher in my opinion.
Has notes of spices and sweetness, all of which is overpowered by its harshness. You're better off buying Captain Morgan Black Spiced.
Nothing to write home about, but a decent enough spiced rum. Nice with a drop of Coke and always something I will keep on the shelf for if people come round and aren't into good rum straight.
I keep a bottle on my boat. It seems to be the correct place for a glass over ice.Sit back and watch the sun set into the Pacific..It's a acquired taste, slightly thick, bold, black navy type rum,
It's the type of rum the captain of the boat in Jaws was talking about when he said "Rum ain't drinking, it's surviving!"
