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.
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.

Kraken is in my point of view only suitable as a mixer and is in the Captain Morgan ballpark.
Better than captain Morgan. But that goes for nearly every rum on the market. Pour this beast into your tea or a cup of coke. Meanwhile hide it somewhere so nobody can reveal your bad taste.
Incredible any way, neat, rocks, mixed, cocktails. Brilliant flavour with heaps of spice.
This one is not much better than Captain Morgan's black rum. Heavy aftertaste. The best thing about this rum is the bottle!
i don't normally like spiced rums but found the Kraken with its caramel background to be an easy tipple with coke. This ones not a sipper forme.
Great tasting rum for the value!- Mixes well with coke.
Super dark and heavy unique rum. I really enjoyed it, good for its price range. Would not drink it straight, but as a mixer with Coke it's very interesting.
Strong ok mixer
Very dark and very sweet, with notes of caramel, vanilla, cardamon & other spices, some say as well mint, but I'm not so sure. Goes very well with cola. Will not enchant people who prefer it dry.
Its ok, but im not big on super dark or spiced rums rums. Definitely has a unique flavor profile. Way better than anything Captain Morgan offers
I am not sure if I am a big fan of spiced rums... anyway this one is not bad but there is better I think for the same price. Quite like the bottle.
This is very good on the rocks with two wedges of lime squeezed into it - other than that I am not a big fan of spiced rums
Kracken is drinkable but really should be mixed. Not for sipping.
I enjoyed it but not probably wont get again.
My first black rum...not bad, but not outstanding.....or maybe the bottle confused my taste buds and made it taste better.
I actually prefer sipping this than mixing it. It has a good flavor and goes down pretty smooth. Mixing it with either ginger ale or coke just seems to overpower the drink.
Not a bad mixer with ginger beer
I have drank many spice rum, I prefer the Kraken
to mixed up in the flavour to be a rum, it's the wrong colour, available in the supermarket....and we not have much good to say about it....it might be tasty to a non rum head....best leave it on the shelf, unless attracted by the bottle...
