Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Kraken Black Spiced Rum is relatively new to the market, being first introduced to the UK from the Caribbean in 2010 by Proximo Spirits. 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.
not the best of rums pretty harsh but bet than some other supermarket rums
Nice strong rum with a bitter sweet taste. Good dark color and a strong alchol/barrel smell.
Great easy go to choice, good flavor, just need a splash of coke
While this isn’t the “best” rum in the world...it punches above its weight class is every respect. You can sit back and drink it all night by itself or you can make any spiced rum cocktail. Hell, you can throw it in a frozen daiquiri machine and it will be the best pina colada you’ve ever had. If it’s not on your bar you’re fucking up.
Ich trinke ihn gerne mal zwischendurch. Der Preis ist absolut in Ordnung und manchmal darf es ja auch mal etwas „rauher“ sein.
Have tried a few of the more affordable rums, hands down this tops them. Not a sipping rum for me but definitely the BEST mixer. Goes down smooth and doesnt obliterate your mixed drink. Lovely! Try this over Capt, bacardi or sailor, you wont regret it!
Quite like this as a mixing rum as it doesn't contain as much artificial sweetness and vanilla of other mainstream rums like Captain Morgan.
Black spiced rums aren't my favorite type of rum, but Kraken Black Spiced Rum is not bad at all. Straight it's pretty harsh (94 proof and it shows), on the rocks it's a bit less so, but I wouldn't sip this anyway unless nothing else is available. This thing is for mixing, and it mixes pretty well in any drink where you might use black spiced rum-I personally love it with Coke because it has more flavor than white rums but does not overwhelm the drink with vanilla and/or caramel like most other spiced rums do. Smells syrupy. Taste-wise, it has somewhat noticeable sugar, some vanilla flavor and a strong alcohol kick.
Popular dark spiced rum great taste , smooth !!!!!!!!!!
Pur nicht genießbar, viel zu scharf und nicht harmonisch. Gemischt in cocktails oder mit Cola auf Eis sehr zu empfehlen, da hierbei die Gewürze ihren vollen Geschmack zeigen.
Very sweet, molasses, fruity, lots of caramel, raisins and even some prunes in there. Was pleasantly surprised by this one.
This is a strong rum, but filled with spice flavors. The bottle is great, and adds a point here. A mixer in strong drinks for me.
Nice, very drinkable, with a distinct vanilla sweetness. Not my favourite at this price, that goes to Baron Samedi, but quite good.
Rum veramente sfizioso, è uno spiced rum molto scuro con sentore di caramello e vaniglia. Ideale per cocktail ma divertente da bere anche così.
My go to affordable everyday rum. Mixed with coke and fresh lime. My dirty secret/guilty pleasure is that I regularly mix it with Dr Pepper when at home.
For its low price class a good tasteful rum that can be found in many shops and supermarkets
This is fairly common in most places but it still remains one of my favourites. I find I can drink it all night long. Full of spice, this is one Kraken I don't mind taking on often!
Not for the taste but for the good times had while drinking it.
I am typing 50 characters in order to test this out.
I didn’t understand the complaints about added sugar, but I think I get it now. Way too sweet and cloying. The best use I can think of is a training spiced for when you first learn to drink rum straight.
If we are talking about the black spiced rum's, then Captain Morgan's Black Spiced is better and Black Magic Black Spiced is far better ...
Pewnie piłbym częściej gdyby cena była niższa. 100 zł za butelkę 0,7 to trochę za dużo, uważam że 50-60 to uczciwa cena jak za oferowany trunek. W smaku typowy czarny rum z dodatkiem przypraw. Niczym się nie wyróżnia, pijalny, jednak cena stanowczo za wysoka.
