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.

    Bought as a gift for a neighbour but I demanded a taster before handing it over. The best spiced rum I've tasted to date so will certainly be treating myself to a bottle.

    First taste. Neat with no junk: immature but drinkable, cleverly spiced. With junk: extremely quaffable (40% rum, 60% cola, no ice). Two thumbs up for the theming. Beware the Kraken.

    A decent spiced rum, though some flavors feel like artificial flavors induced to hide an unadged rum. That said I cannot say it's undrinkable. Usually best straight as opposed to mixed. It makes for a nice sweet, mellow dram when your peated scotch feels a bit much.

    Very strong..almost to strong. Drinking straight...the flavor reminded me of rim and coke with lime. Mixing it was better. Over all, not the best I've had and would not be in the top 3 I'd recommend to my customers.

    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 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’s far too raw 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.
