Kraken Bottling Note

An excellent spiced rum, with utterly brilliant packaging! This was launched in the UK in early 2010, and it has an extraordinarily rich, spicy flavour. Named for the legendary sea monster, Kraken is a blend of Caribbean rums that should certainly suit any fans of rich, navy-style rum.

    User Reviews of the Kraken Black Spiced Rum

    Ok but not amazing...

    It is ok, but perhaps too much flavored I guess with additives...
    Please don't talk about coke, this might be the worst soft to mix with rum.
    If you want a rhum which worth it I would advise you to buy Bacardi 8yo or havana 7yo and if your budget is a bit higher: diplomatico RE, zacapa 23, or plantation 89

    Look at it, look.

    See that bottle? The lable? Why haven't you bought it yet? What the hell is wrong with you? No wonder your mother never loved you.

    Forgot to add - 9 /10 stars for me

    A few mixed reviews below, but to date this is one of my favourites. Tried it at a Drambusters rum tasting and both me and my brother couldn't wait too order a bottle and get it home. Excellent with ginger beer more than coke, but also very drinkable on its own. Nice bottle too.

    Mr. Rum

    I bought a miniature at local liquor store. I mixed it with a splash of coke. I didn't like the after taste of rum. Had somewhat of a chocolate after taste. It's kind of bland tasting with no excitement to it. There are much better dark rums on the market than this stuff. Marketing is A+++. Taste is a D-.

    Being a rum fanatatic and having tasted many many different rums over the years. I can tell you that this is awful stuff with clever marketing. I suggest that if you like spiced rum that you should buy a bottle of chairmans reserve spiced, it will cost a little bit more but boy its worth every penny.Try this simple test to check the quality buy both and see how much longer the taste holds in your mouth with the chairmans and the actual taste. There simply is no comparison.

    A deliciously smoothe as in, a suave; debonair rum

    Each year I celebrate Trafalgar Day and last night was no exception, not having any RUM in the house, off to the supermarket. The Kraken looked the right choice. The taste is amazing, licorice, cream, chocholate came through with no kick, the spices were smoothe a very drinkable drink and before I knew it half the bottle had gone, roll on October 21st 2015

    Krake spiced

    very very good

    One of the best black spiced rums

    There are black rums and there are spiced rums. Kraken is one of a new breed that is both, and so far they're the best I've had.
    In a lot of other black spiced rums, various flavors stand out here and there which is offputting. In Kraken the flavors really meld together into a smooth, spicy, sweet, and dark rum.

    Brilliant !

    Just taken delivery of 2 bottles of kraken black spiced rum & just had a tot to sample them my verdict is I have to say I made a very wise choice indeed - it's absolutely delicious ! I was a little nervous about buying something I had never tasted before by the internet but I need not have worried , I am grinning from ear to ear & I dare say the grin will widen even more when sampled later on ! Very satisfied indeed , service from master of malt is second to non & items arrived exactly when they said they would , I recommend master of malt & I definitely recommend kraken black spiced rum !

    it's ok ... PART 2

    My last review gave it 5 stars.. but this was an mini-bottle. It was in fact 47% alcohol.

    This bottle appears to be 40% in the photo. Take it for what it is.. I just wanted to clear things up.

    22nd August 2014

    its ok..

    Nothing super special. In fact when mixed with coke, you can almost taste a bit of straight alcohol flavor from it. Perhaps it's because of the 47%. I'm not sure, but I wish it mixed better. The flavor is ok. I'm sure that after you drink one, number 2 tastes much better.

    22nd August 2014

    Kraken stuff!

    A great rum for a great price. I really enjoy rum, and this is great.

    14th August 2014


    My previous review, I said that I did not enjoy Kraken...I managed subsequently to buy a bottle of Ron Zacapa Solera 23 - boy, now this is a great rum (cost 3 times more) but you will not be disappointed.

    23rd June 2014


    lovely as served with coke and ice

    20th June 2014

    smooth, rich taste, with a little bite

    this rum is fantastic, and the price is just right, the kraken is definitely a rum for those who enjoy the finer things in life but are not willing to break the bank. the spice notes are nice, and it has a smooth sweet finish, best served ice cold with coke, or for the brave at heart, straight up.

    Kraken Black Spiced Rum tastes a bit like a hybrid between brandy and rum- leaning more to the rum side. Unlike some other rums it has a nice consistency that is neither too sticky nor too watery. It is sweet and spicy, good straight and as a mixer in coke or ginger ale.

    Not my cup of tea

    Here in South Africa we are limited by our Rum brands.So when I saw Kraken I bought a bottle. After opening it I was quite surprised by the nice flavour. But after having one "shot" of Kraken I was very disappointed. It left a taste in my mouth which put me off this rum. I will stick to Cpt Morgan Dark rum. Even the Cpt Morgan spiced rum is a nicer rum than Kraken. I gave the bottle away after 1 drink.

    Personal favourite

    Kraken is now one of my favourite rums, rivalled only by Pink Pigeon and Rumbullion.

    25th March 2014


    This is one of the best rums I have ever had the privilege of enjoying. This rum has the ability to be enjoyed with ginger ale, coke, or neat. Really whatever you decided to use it for it will do it. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 rating was because unfortunately it gives me heart burn. Weird I know and very sad but it is quite amazing

    Kraken Rum

    One of the best Rums I have ever had for the price. I am ex military and drank many rums in my day but this one I can honestly say is excellent on the pallat and smooth going down. Has a nice subtle warmth to it and sits in the belly quite comfortably. I recommend this to anyone who loves a good rum now and again.

    Kraken and coke. Class act all the way

    Have tried many different rums and until now was always raving about morgans spiced rum as the best you could get at a good price but this tops it by a country mile. Beautiful vanilla notes and affordable. You can do no better!

    14th November 2013

    kraken and egg nog

    Try it you'll like it. very good product....dont like rum but i like this one:)

    1st October 2013

    Rum to put all others in the shade

    Best rum ive ever tried. Gorgeous vanilla/caramel notes and works amazingly well with ginger ale and lime. A truly class act throughout

    19th March 2013

    A sweet and a little odd rum

    Nose: Very fruity eraser!, sweetness, chocolate
    Mouth: Pretty much sweetness, almond paste/marzipan

    8th October 2012


    After hearing people raving about this rum I tried some and I must admit I was a bit disappointed and ended up wondering why everyone said it was so good. Don't get me wrong it's nice and I like the bottle but as spiced rum goes it's not a patch on Lambs Spiced, Morgans Spiced or the original Sailor Jerrys.

    22nd August 2012


    okay rum, was captivated by the marketing campaign a couple of years back before it was available in the UK. especially at the price, doesn't live up to the hype.

    18th July 2012

    Sheer quality

    Amazing stuff with lime and ginger ale. Easy to drink neat or with ice

    17th July 2012

    MR D

    I like the rum because it has a nice plesent smell to it and its smooth in the mouth, tastes sweat and creamy.

    1st June 2012

    Release the Kraken!

    Great bottle design, fantastic dark rum, a must for rum lovers.

    31st May 2012

    A new favorite

    I've had a few rums in my time, the love of old sea monster stories enticed me to trying this, was not disappointed! works well on ice with a slice of lime, or add to Kahlua and milk for an excellent white cuban.

    A great rum, with a solid price :) try it!

    24th February 2012

    Rum with an Attitude

    This must be the best Rum I have tasted since my last visit to Barbados, a lovley taste that you can drink straight if you wish. A very good buy

    19th December 2011

    Crackin' rum!

    With Peychaud's bitters, lime and Fentimans ginger beer. Oh yes, indeed!
