Trinidad and Tobago | Spiced | 40% ABV | Column Still (1-4) Distilled

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.

Dark, very easy to mix and delicious with cola and a splash of grenadine! Watch out, it's a bit higher alcohol content then most spiced rums but way smoother. Very good taste in my opinion, great mixer. Pick up a bottle and enjoy

This is a very harsh rum, good for "Customers" as my mom used to say, who visit and want to mix it with something. Although once in awhile I will take a swig and act like a Pirate with the crinkling face and all... Not on my good list...

The rum is heavily colored to dark brown, almost black hue. In the glass, it leaves thick, viscous legs.

The nose is full of licorice, with hints of wet bark and mint candy.

The taste is very sweet, more licquorice, honey, maple syrup, herbs and finally eucalyptus with a nasty, aspartame-like chemical aftertaste.

The mouthfeel is oily and cloying, änd the finish is short and rather unpleasant, with lingering chemical aftertaste.

This drink was obviously designed to be drowned in a jug of cola, but even so, it tastes more like Jagermeister than rum.

Too sweet, must have colouring in it to make it that black. Wouldn't buy again and I wish people would stop giving it to me.

Not a fan of this. If you like off-brand diet soda mixed with rubbing alcohol, you might enjoy this. Anyone rating this over a 4 has not an earthly clue what decent rum should taste like. You might be able to turn your regular coke into an alcoholic Diet Coke substitute with this but that’s about the only use of it I can think of. Also per ALKO notes this is absolutely loaded with flavor additives in addition to ungodly amounts of sugar.

*Update June 2020* This rum tasted so horrible that I am traumatized. Almost a year later and I still have most of a bottle that I am unable to even think about opening because I can't stand even the smell of it.

*Update August 2020* After realizing that I could not in good conscience pass this bottle off on a colleague, I poured down the drain. This is to date the only rum I have ever rated a 1 and literally poured down the drain.
