Rum Review: The Kraken Black Spiced Rum

Posted by Arctic Wolf on March 28, 2010

The Kraken Black Spiced Rum

The Kraken Black Spiced Rum is a new spiced rum from Proximo Spirits. It is an imported black rum from the Caribbean, reputedly infused with 11 secret spices. The rum is named after the legendary sea monster which is claimed to have attacked sailing ships in the Caribbean during the 18th and 19th centuries. This is a 94 proof black spiced rum.

Here is an excerpt from my review:

“…The rum is very dark with what looks like a kind of dark brown and plum colouration.   A moderate amount of legs are apparent when I swirl the glass, and a mildly spicy licorice, cinnamon and molasses rise into the air.  I catch faint wiffs of cloves, plum preserves, and black cherries as well…”

As well I have went out on limb and designed a new cocktail for this rum which I playfully call,  My Pet Squid.   Enjoy!

    WOW. I prefer single malts and bourbons but attained a liking for rum while in puerto rico. Don Q crystal is smooth but the Kraken is definitaely more in my wheelhouse. It also tastes alot better than the generic spiced runs. I’m lookina at you Captain Morgan. Prepare to be taken down by the Kraken.
