It reminded me of a cup of cold coffe left from yesterday! This one have to be decorated with some sort of additives. Stay away!!
OK, but not nearly as good as its big brother. You’ll end up using more of this Kraken Lite in your favorite rum cocktail. Also, lacks the robust taste & presence of the 94. I’d switch labels though - use the black label on the 94.
Minus the carbonation. Maybe there’s a better way to experience this than as a base, certainly not as a sipper? Perhaps with a dram of a Spanish style white and some fruity stuff? Idk, I suspect glycol is in this as this low proof rum (35% abv) makes you feel the booze longer than one should, with that sickly after effect akin to Fireball. Maybe that’s it! The Fireball of dark rums… additives and all. If you’re stuck with some, probably blend this in a milkshake and call it a day.
This rum have the same problems as the Don Papa. Too much sugar and additives, maybe it's good as a first rum for newcomers since you can find this everywhere, but here again it seems that all the money has been invested in marketing and packaging instead of making a good rum.
The original kraken does not impress so to taste a stronger one, still doesn't impress . Pure added sugar and rubbish flavours ... Swiftly move on from this one
This is diluted Kraken (70 proof instead of 94) sold for about $0.5-1 less. Simple as that. Same overwhelming vanilla taste with a predictably weaker burn. Not the worst I've had straight (which is why it gets a 2), but definitely not a rum I'd like to drink straight regularly. It also can't be drunk on the rocks as it becomes a watered down mess, and the rum and coke I made with this tasted like vanilla Coke mixed with water. I couldn't even taste the rum. Don't waste your money on this one.
One side you drink Kraken, the other side you drink Captain. Good enough for the price. Nothing spectacular. It gets a 7 because it is definitely not bad rum.
