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.
Fijn rummetje, niets mis mee, eur 28..............
goeie rum smaakt lekker vooral in de cola prijs 28 euro
Couldn't even finish it. Maybe spiced rum isn't for me.
A big plus for the bottle design.
I think Kraken has a little more power in taste/spice the Capten Morgan Spiced Gold
Quality wise this comes close to that of your average captain Morgan's. Almost too sweet to mix with cola and way to artificial to ever drink straight up.
Kraken is a combo of rum with different spices. ..i noticed vanilla, cinnamon, prune, some Woods and maybe even pepper. Interesting to sip but with a raw piraty alcoholic burn to it.
the taste is a bit too spicey for me. But the bottle and label just look awesome
A couple of years ago I was blown away by this rum but since getting into sippers, coming back to it is not that great.
A bit medicinal tasting. It has that Dr. Pepper vibe with coke. I'd choose it over the captain on a night out
This should be in everybody's collection.excellent for sipping or with cola.
The kraken has to be my favourite spiced rum perfect for mixing but I can happily drink on the rocks with lime wedges I seem to be attached to the empty bottle's alsofor me it's perfect.
I fell for everything that this spice rum is. I'm sorry.
Not big on spiced, but was offered a glas (straight up) at a friend. Quite coconutty nose. Taste is very sweet, almost like cola, but its a little syntethic and ends very fast, and fades in to a sligthy alcoholic afterburn. Imagine it would be ok with ginger ale. Better than your regular spiced captain I suppose.
Spice rum that are perfect to use to mix with ginger beer. Also used it in my cooking like bolongese.
Perfekt cocktail rum
I tried the Kraken, but could not get excited about it. I'm not a big fan of spiced/added flavor rums to begin with, and the Kraken did little to change my mind.
Good readily available rum. Best with coke. Easy drinker
Un gran especiado
My first sip lead to 3 more drinks straight up! Then the higher proof hit me. This beast shows it's tentacles after you drink, not before. My top recommended rum at work.
Uninspiring synthetic "spiced" rum
Good 1:1 with ginger and smooth enough to drink straight but not enough depth of flavour and very sweet. Overall a decent rum for the price tag.
Drink only with cola.
I tried this one for the first time at the 2011 UK Rumfest and i was somehow expecting more so i was a little bit disappointed but they mixed such tasty rum punches with it so that took some of the disappointment away. Anyway, it´s an ok mixer as i see it.
The first thing that strikes you is the bottle, it brings a original feel. The next thing is the color, it brings an expectation of fullness and bold taste. The best thing however is the taste. Smooth, bold, full tatse with hints of caramel and vanilla. In my option this is rum is best experienced on the rocks.
with Coke a little bit better than Oakheart.
