For lovers of Virginia and fantastic black Rum.

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.

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). Don’t be scared but The Kraken Attacks Virginia is as dark as the Appalachian Trail at midnight… a kind of peanut-loving creature that’s slithering in the Shenandoah, this spectacular black Rum is blended with natural flavors and caramel color at 94 proof.

Appearance / Color
Dark Walnut

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

Flavor / Taste / Palate
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.

Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
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 why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’
Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.
