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.

    Purchased for a friend who LOVES this rum and the free glass mug was a bonus, which my friend was delighted with, and it added to the gift. Great website with lots of choice, reasonable prices, easy transaction, extremely well packaged and very fast delivery, therefore I would not hesitate to purchase from the Whisky Exchange again.

    Sorry guys ...to me it’s just an un-aged blended rum, that’s cleverly spiced. It’s not that special, just a bit of a gimmick with a nice bottle , If you’ve read my other reviews you’ll know by now that I’m a rum drinker, and I just can’t drink this spiced rum neat, like I can rumbullion...it’s far too raw ...at the back of my mouth. Yet again.. I’m going to get the ginger beer out.. Spend another tenner and you’ll get so much more for your money.. granted it might not always be spiced though.

    First time drinking this and I must say it's a delight to drink. So refreshing when mixed with ginger beer, a dash of lime and plenty of ice. Just recently acquired the taste for dark rum and this is a good start for anyone ??

    Drinkable beyond belief. An absolute joy on the tongue. Chocolate and vanilla overtones when drunk neat, a touch of peat on the rocks. You'd be wasting it by mixing, it's best enjoyed on its own. Simply one of THE BEST rums on the market. Buy it, and more importantly, DRINK IT. It's an absolute pleasure.

    The best black-spiced rum I have ever tasted. Not a rum connoisseur, but this is amazing to me. Will buy again and again.

    Was never a fan of rum until I tried Kraken. I started out mixing, but now love it on the rocks.

    It has a very smooth and wonderful flavor initially. The vanilla aftertaste seems to linger a bit.

    First taste is different, pleasant surprise. By the time my glass was empty I was tired of the overpowering vanilla flavour. I don't rate this highly at all. I suppose if you have been on the ovd or lambs then this would seem delicious. Not for me.

    best rum ever and i've tried a lot of kinds. The caramel, the smoothness, the high alcohol content make this rum divine!!!

    Sweet with Carmel, but with pleasant Woody flavor, like you were in a freshly build cabin. Spices are very fragrant and just perfect. slight bitter finish. Good rum for ole pirate like me...but not in top 20.
