Customer Rating

A dark spiced Caribbean rum introduced to the UK in Spring 2010, Kraken's old-style bottle and superlative packaging seem to earmark it out for greatness, and perhaps it will help some of those many thousands of punters nursing an old-recipe-Sailor-Jerry-sized hole in their hearts.

    Delicious neat or mixed with Diet Coke. This rum smells fantastic and tastes quite sweet, with the spiciness coming through at the end. Diet Coke complements Kraken well, but I would not recommend ginger beer as a mixer as the ginger beer completely overwhelms the taste and makes adding the rum pointless.

    I was looking for a different spirit. I saw this and thought I would try it. Great spicy taste. I had it neat with plain water on the side (not in it). I never add ice to spirits!

    Release the Kraken! My number one favourite. Unfortunately a lot of people on our island think so also now, so there is none left here. Hooray for Whisky Exchange!

    Love it. Try with Old Jamaican Ginger Beer - seriously recommended.

    Tried this today for the first time with friends, excellent taste with a smooth liquor quality. Best without a mixer, best served with ice and lemon.
