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.
Major multi tasker from mixing backburners such as coke and Dr ppepper,to going outside the box and bringing its strong vanilla flavor out with cream soda or rootbeer.I prefer straight up at room temp cold hides to many of its many flavors.
This is potent enough for a good, spicy rum and coke. It can also add some interesting variation to other types of fruity mixed drinks and dark and stormies.
Upon first taste it was ok, but after a few more sips it got worse. It has a very overpowering nasty taste. Maybe I got a bad bottle or something but it wasn't my cup of tea. But that's just my opinion.
I have had this on the rocks and done it as a shot... either way it's great!
So good but better image than rum.
Straight up - not bad - 5/10
With cola - better - 7/10
Average - 6/10
It's strong! Dark rum at 47% and if u aren't careful the kraken will wreck your ship. It's a boat ride kind a drink. I love it and often it is my daily summer fun drink.
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...
Tastes very strong of menthol. Only good for mixing in a pinch.
First time I tried this I hated it but after I was given two bottles it has grown on me (thankfully!)
Goes great with Coke, 7-up, Ginger Ale, Ginger Beer, Juices, ............. It's a WIN/WIN rum.
Nice brand, nice bottle and nice color. Great spiced rum, better than captain morgan and "friends", I like it with cola, but straight it's just an average rum.
I will only recommend this rum if you are looking for a good rum for cocktails/mixing. I tried it straight a frew times but the result was bad every time. But perfect with a ice cold coke.
A great choice for mixing with some cola on the rocks.
I really did enjoy this rum. Both with coke and over ice on its own. It has come down in price somewhat and would be a recommended rum for the every day rum drinker but better rums do exist.
Other than Goslings this is my second favorite mixer for a dark and stormy.
I don't find it quite as smooth as Goslings and it does not have the same strong molasses taste. More of a licorice taste in my opinion.
With that being said, it is smoother than you would expect for the price. It also is one of the few dark rums that comes in the 60oz bottle.
Would recommend as a mixer.
As a mixer with coke, not bad but not a sipper. Cool bottle and looks good in the cabinet. For guests that don't know any better
i just cannot give the kraken less than 7 based on I feel good every time i pour it. and i prefer to just sipp it
i liked it more with a long shot with coke, lime, or any other coke drink. Although you will taste various spice, still the ending is too light and too alcoholic for me.
Mørk sjørøverrom som må prøves om du liker å blande med cola for å drikke deg full! Er i en helt annen klasse enn andre billigsorter som Capt Morgan etc
I was out of town and decided to take a chance and try the kraken. I was pleasantly surprised at the flavor and was happy to see it was available at my local rum shop. It's smooth and flavorful. I'm currently exploring other choices but this is one is definitely one I'll get again
Mají hezký marketing a story, ale rum mě moc nenadchnul. tenhle styl koření mi nesedl.
Very licorice taste. I tried it straight up, probably need to try it with soda or ginger beer....
Wanted to pick up a spiced rum and bought a bottle of Kraken after reading posted reviews. Tried it straight, on the rocks, and with Mexican Coca Cola. Have to say I liked it all 3 ways. Had a nice Black Licorice taste.
