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.

    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.

    Very solid drink. Had the Captain Morgan Black spice a few weeks ago, liked that and went to a liquor store(not the one I bought the Cap at) to get another one. They did not carry it but they had the Kraken. Got it since I heard a lot of good thing about it. Well the the spice are not as strong, it is a bit sweeter, goes down smoother and all round tasted better neat. Although I'd buy Captain Morgan Black Spiced again, this I'd pick over it by just a bit

    When you drink too much of an alcohol drink and then still drink it again the next day its good Ive been drinking for 30 years and I can only say that for 3 drinks bud, sinfire and this one the kraken. But this one is 94 so enjoy carefully. Defintely vanilla great with a ice cold coke chaser!

    Sweet, with a distinct twang, over ice, left for awhile, to take the edge of to make it smooth and frosty, capt morgan, has its place, but this one is a good member of my dark rum line, worth a try, maybe you like it, maybe not, but there is as of writing this only one way to definitively tell.

    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.
