The Kraken Attacks Las Vegas is a limited edition, collectable bottling of The Kraken Dark Spiced Rum as the monster wrecks havoc on the Vegas Strip.

Proximo Spirits does a great job developing Spirits brands. Proximo was founded in 2007 by the Beckman family — owners of José Cuervo. Their portfolio now includes ten brands across a wide range of Spirits from Whiskey to Vodka, Gin, and Mezcal and back again. The Kraken Rum line of spiced Rums was introduced in 2010 and has seen exponential growth, especially in Australia where it has a dominant market position.

The Kraken Attacks Las Vegas is part of a limited edition series built on the classic Kraken Black Spiced Rum that they’re famous for. The Spirit is molasses-based and distilled on the island of Trinidad at the southernmost point in the Caribbean Sea. It’s aged one to two years and infused with a secret mix of eleven tasty spices, including cinnamon, clove, and ginger.

They devised The Kraken Attacks series as a brilliant promotion to support local bars during the pandemic with free cocktails and by issuing a series of limited edition bottles to support the project. It also will help them get more penetration in the US market, so everybody wins (except the competition). For The Kraken Attacks Las Vegas the sea monster wraps its tentacles around the famous Neon Cowboy sign and famous casinos — seems like a fitting end to Sin City with a glass of Rum to send it off.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma leads with notes of cinnamon-raisin bread, followed by butter toffee, tart apple, and a hint of menthol.

The palate is all about vanilla and rich baking spices and they are all there — from allspice and cassia to clove and nutmeg… even a hint of something citrusy.

Finish
The finish is long and wet with the rich spices hanging out for the after-party.

Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
If the center of our galaxy had a signature scent, it would be Rum. Yup, astronomers studying a giant cloud in the Milky Way found a substance called ethyl formate, a chemical that smells suspiciously like Rum.
Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.
Rum is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
