Release the Kraken!
 
Many years ago in the Caribbean Islands a ship carrying a large quantity of black spiced Rum mysteriously disappeared. It is rumored that the ship was attacked by the Kraken, a legendary sea monster known for its deadly tentacles, razor sharp teeth, and insatiable appetite. Probably no legendary creature was as horrifying as the Kraken. According to the stories this huge, many armed creature looked like an island when motionless and could reach as high as the top of a sailing ship's main mast with its arms deployed.
 
Kraken Black Spiced Rum is distilled in pot stills on the Virgin Islands and fermented from molasses made from sugar cane grown on nearby riverbanks. Natural yeasts are used to ferment the water thinned molasses, which is converted directly into alcohol. Kraken Rum is then aged in oak barrels for 12 to 24 months before being blended with a range of spices, including cinnamon, ginger and clove.

SmartAss Corner
When faced with a bottle of spiced Rum, the most obvious thing to do is mix it with Coke. If you’re feeling more adventurous, go for spiced Rum with Ginger Beer or Root Beer.

Steven
Very dark spiced rum. Heavy vanilla flavor. Works well straight or as a mixer. Its also easier to obtain stateside than most of the other rums on here.
Anthony
Great dark spiced rum, Great for sipping and for mixing
anonymous
A bit too easy to drink with Coke, I like the sweet flavours in Krakens & the sharpness of a wedge of lime.
Paul
Its a very smooth for a dark rum, nice by itself on ice or I make a island tea drink to unwind the work week with.
Mr
Always smooth and enjoyable. Feels like a treat.
William
This has by far become my favorite summertime drink while at the pool. Great flavor with just a splash of cola.
Cedric
Interesting spiced rum, to mix or introduce this type for beginners. No interest if you're looking for a real rhum/rum/ron.
Brett
Smooth
Mr.Tim
We tried Kraken and was pleasantly surprised by the taste and finish. It won a spot on our bar! You can taste all the flavors that they say ate in it and the alcohol to us is perfect.
Thomas

I love this Rum, it is one of my favorites. I really like sweeter drinks, and this one hits the spot.
Shane
Greeeaaaaattttttt!!!!
Andrew
Very sweet. Almost overpowers the liquor, but still enjoyable.
Michael
Too spiced for me.
Glen
Bought this rum from an other vendor after reading Flaviar reviews. The only word i care to use is disappointing. The only flavour you get is vanilla, it is comparable to an over oaked wine. I tried it hard chilled, with coke, with pineapple and many other variants but still got the same result. Vanilla, no one that I served to requested a second serving, that speaks volumes. I stick to my Bacardi 151.
