Sorry about this...

Kraken Black Spiced Rum 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.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Spicy and rich with notes of vanilla and toffee apples. Hints of lime and cinnamon too.

Palate: Dark, rich palate. Thick with molasses and tar, and a barrage of cinnamon, golden syrup, nutmeg and charred oak.

Finish: Long, very spicy finish.

Kraken Black Spiced Rum Reviews

Found it. liked it sticking with it!

One of the best out there! once you try it you just gotta buy it!

18th October 2020

stick with the captain

i have tried several different rums in my years .. but i always end up back with the good capatin morgan... i found the kracken to basically be in the words my son son .. thats ugh mum...
there was nothing i liked with it, i varey from pepsi max, blackcurrent or ginger ale with my rums but none went with this rum. it left an aftertaste that lingered for a while, friend tried it, he liked it so i donated it to him :) i hope so one buys me any for xmas

18th September 2020

Average. Just does a job

The Phil Neville of rums

3rd July 2020

A nice refreshing and palatable tipple.

Never been one to drink spirits, but decided to try rum..... Which was a good plan prior to going to the Caribbean! I found this to be a very enjoyable drink, usually mix with coke. Nice taste, sits well in the mouth, certainly moreish. A very good introduction to rum I think. Had Mount Gay in Caribbean, again very nice, but for me Kraken is an anytime tipple (once the noon ticks over.... Obviously!!)

29th May 2020

Beautiful tasting rum, 5 stars.

Best spiced rum I've tasted, warm on the back of your throat going down, gives a nice spice aftertaste, could drink whole bottle if the wife wasn't in ha ha ha.

24th May 2020


Love this, my favourite spiced rum! Appleton Gold is my usual rum.

18th May 2020

Rather thin

Was bought a bottle as a present. I normally only ever drink Mount Gay XO or Wood’s so only have those to use as a point of reference.
I thought Kraken to be rather thin with no real hard hitting flavours. Still, it worked in a Dark & Stormy (I used Crabbies alcoholic ginger beer)

3rd May 2020

Top Tot 👍

Anyone who doesn't like Kraken obviously has No Tastebuds.......
It's the Best by far 👍

7th April 2020

Sure fire favourite

Superb value for money, far nicer to drink than something like ‘Woods’ (Which is basically nitromors).
Sweet, vanilla and smooth to the taste with a hint of toffee.
I never go without a bottle on my shelf.

20th March 2020

Worth it

Good value for money.

2nd March 2020


Well to the 👍🍷🍷taste

26th February 2020

Worth a try

Good value rum

23rd February 2020


I usually drink Wood’s but can’t buy it in France. Kraken was suggested and I bought a bottle.

Disappointed; more than a hint of Nitromors on the nose and the rum is thin and insipid. Vanilla is about it.

28th January 2020

Ist class

I was in the army for 12 years I have drank all sorts of rum but never in a million years would I have thought i would taste a rum like KRAKEN it is out of this world thank you 😃😄👍

18th January 2020


Harsh ethanol on the nose, sickly vile taste on the tongue. If you drink rum neat, avoid this like the plague. If you like cocktails, use almost anything else.

6th January 2020

like rum and flat coke ..... devoid of character, sweet and sickly

Tastes like rum and flat coke ..... utterly devoid of character, overly sweet and sickly. I guess when they have to refer to the packaging in the product description, it tells you all you need to know about the drink itself

24th December 2019


Dad is hard to please with rums and loves this one!

12th December 2019

One of the Best rums tasted..

Spicy.and smooth rich Finnish.

3rd December 2019

Wonderful stuff

This is a wonderful rum it's spicy but not too much it has in my opinion a treacle taste that compliments the spice. I only drink this neat it's very smooth and moreish.

26th November 2019

Don't believe the hype.

Not rum. Artificial over flavoured junk trying to conceal a cheap, harsh rum base. It might be trendy and appeal to those who just want to smother it in cola and get drunk but for the same money Sailor Jerry and Captain Morgan are far better options.

27th September 2019

A decent Autumn/Winter rum but could do with a little polish.

A smooth and dark sipping rum but a little harshness and a slight "cough medicine" taste in the finish, however leaves a warming palate. A decent Autumn/Winter rum.

25th August 2019


Goes really nicely with ginger ale and a slice of grapefruit

8th August 2019


Best rum ever tasted

8th August 2019

My new favorite

My new favorite spiced rum for sure. I’ve tried everything from captains to sailor j’s, cruzan to bicardi and I’ve finally settled on a new favorite. This tastes incredible For a 97% APV rum, as compared to the relatively harsh captain morgans original spiced rum such is only 45% APV or 70 proof. Kracken tastes amazing with your favorite soda (my personal favorites are Dr. P and ginger ale) or just drink it straight on ice or neat.

22nd May 2019

The gatekeeper of rum

If you’re working your way up, it’s pretty much with Kraken that rum starts to get “good” and becomes drinkable neat. Quite velvety and smooth with minimal throat burn. This is what rum should be and this experience is not exactly common even with rarer or more premium rums.

13th January 2019

Amazing 🙌🏾

Bought this randomly yesterday to surprise a good friend of mine. Taste great. No hangover. Eye would suggest eating something though and mixing with coke.

28th June 2018

Big Fan of Kraken Black Spiced Rum

I am from a family of rum drinkers and even though my mother isn't completely sold on it, my father and I love it. This is by far the best rum I've ever tasted in my far.

14th June 2018

Really good rum! But more of a mixer. Unless you drink to get drunk

Bought it to give it a try. Honestly it has too much flavor for me, but I'm not much of a liqueur drinker myself. Not the greatest for lightweights due to the Proof and % being pretty high, but that's when you drink it straight. Mixing it with Root beer or cola really makes it what you imagined rum to be as a kid. I love it better than Lady Blight, and is indeed a very good rum! However, unless you are a Drink to Get Drunk type, I would use this as something to spike your cola or root beer with for that nice rum flavor and taste, as well as something to get ya buzzed. With its very smooth flavor and smooth burn, it's sorta meant to be mixed. Also, CHILL IT BEFORE TRYING IT!
Final verdict:
Flavor: 5.3/5*
Burn and Bite: 3/5*
Drink to Get Drunk capability: 4.9/5*
Mixer score: 5/5*
Chillable?: yes.
Label and Bottle Design: 2/5*

Great Spiced Rum, Give it a Shot

I just had this rum for my first time with my father in law after a family beach day. I received it as a gift. I am one who experiments with all spirits.

I have not had much spiced rum, only as mixers and only of the usual captain morgan, bacardi, sailor jerry.. I mostly drink bourbon or whisky on ice. Well Kraken on ice is to say the least, enjoyable.

Smells like a vanilla coke. Looks dark as caramel. Tastes strongly of vanilla with that classic spiced taste and a little burn or tingle on your tongue. The tastes improves as you get through your glass. It has a nice glass bottle. The aluminum cap mentioned in previous posts is noted. I guess a corked bottle would give the rum a more top shelf feel. But none the less, the dark rum in the bottle is what im drinking.

Overall, a great spiced rum. I would recommend you give Kraken a shot. To call it the best, I will have to get back to you, after I finish this bottle and try or retry some of the others out there :-)

30th April 2018

Affordable and delicious

This is by far my favorite spiced rum. It is quite dark and has a strong vanilla undertone. I don't generally like rum straight up, but this is excellent straight or mixed. It has very little actual alcohol flavor or burn...just sweet and smooth. It tastes like a nice high end rum, but is quite reasonably priced.

If you don't like rum or sweet alcohol, this may not be for you. For everyone else, I highly recommend.

26th April 2018

Bought first bad bottle today hope it doesn’t happen again

I have loved this rum for 2 years now but i just bought a 1.75 L bottle and it has a awful after taste, t i love my rum Bought feb 1 in parksville bc canada. I’m not a complainer but hopefully this wont happen again . I only drink kraken now as i love the rich flavours, don’t want to have to switch back to other rums

2nd February 2018

Great bottle, great rum, great brand

At last! When I walk into a pub there's a chance there's a decent spiced rum on the shelf! As a serious fan of the spiced rum category, i'm quite happy to drink this all night when out with friends. It's definitely worth it's price tag, my only gripe is the poor quality screw cap. Would be better to have a cork stopper. Treat yourself to one of the ceramic bottle releases as they have a proper stopper and look awesome on your drink shelf.

29th December 2017


Tastes way better than Gosling, Cruzan, Captain, Bacardi, Sailor Jerry, and all of the other usual suspects. If you're not a rum snob (and if you are, try Matusalem Gran Reserva) you will love with. A little spicy, a little sweet, but not overbearingly so in either direction.

20th October 2017


Smooth 'n' sweet with a kick at the end. Love it,
hohoho and a bottle of rum

10th September 2017

So smooth and spicey..

Tried a Dark and Stormy at a pub one evening, chatting at the bar... I was hooked. Mix it with Fever Tree ginger ale, and its just so so moorish.. Im a lover of Redleg, but this is a different beast.

1st August 2017

It was habit changing.

My experience into the unknown began after a sociable evening with my son,I am a malt whisky drinker therefore it never crossed my mind to venture past my favorite tipple,until that most favorable question, sorry Dad I haven't any malt,but would you like to try some rum,that's it I'm hooked,the rum at the time was plantation 5yr old very good,but you don't stop there Kraken was the next recommended rum,no disappointment there,the rum in my opinion is well balanced,the flavors and sweetness compliment each other when added to ice and a minimal squeeze of lime,wonderful, would thoroughly recommend.

30th July 2017

Will defo try again

Smelled sweet like bailys little Kick of spice not much of a kick no water or ice required best straight out freezer smooth taste

1st July 2017

High alcohol content with low alcohol taste

I'm going to be straight forward, I drink to get drunk. I do not sip my hard liquor I sip my beer. So what I'm looking for in a rum is high alcohol content with little bite and Kraken does this better than any rum I've had. I'm not suggesting the flavor is anything less than good, I just don't drink rum by itself. But as a mixer Kraken has very little "burn" to it or raw alcohol taste compared to it's competitors. I find this to be smoother and have less bite than bottom and mid shelf liquors with 20 percent less alcohol by volume. You pay a bit more for it, but you aren't just paying for good packaging. Definitely going to purchase again.

30th June 2017

Rum was awesome, packaging was less than par

I thought the rum was great, but the aluminum cap on the bottle was junk. It did not seal and I didn't be realize it until after I found the bottle on its side in my cooler. I lost almost 2/3 of the bottom because the cap didn't actually tighten down. I could literally pull the cap straight off the bottle once the seal was broken. Very disappointing, although like I said the rum was great just would have been better if I could have enjoyed all the product I actually paid for.

19th June 2017

nice one

I think it's yummy

12th June 2017



25th April 2017

Nice dark rum ,best with ginger beer or on it's own.

Makes a great Dark n stormy with Ginger beer ,not so nice with cola.

17th April 2017

Great spiced rum!

One of the smoothest, tastiest rums I've ever tasted! Easy on the nose, smooth in the mouth, and doesn't bite on the way down. Excellent drop!

6th April 2017

Release the Kraken!!

I ❤️ me some Kraken!! I highly recommend this dark, smooth and not too spicy rum. You won't be disappointed!

17th February 2017

Amazing!! Love it! Such a smooth Dark spicy Rum!

So smooth!! Love it!! Love a Nice Dark Rum

4th February 2017

Kraken is cracking!

This is now my go-to rum replacing Cruzan dark. Kraken is smooth & rich. I've only had it with Southern Comfort eggnog and it makes the best Eggnog I've ever had!

26th December 2016


Can't even fast any spice. Mulled wine is spicy this just tasts of rum and that's it

16th December 2016

Lots of vanilla

This rum is heavily spiced. It's dark and rich but has a little too much vanilla for my liking. It gives it a sweetness that is close to a liqueur than rum.

1st December 2016

Not bad for what it is

It's not bad for what it is
I'm not really a softdrink-liquor-mixing kinda guy, but i use this to make my guests a rum&cola if they request one. I find these way better than p.e. Bacardi or havana club. It's good but it's nothing to be blown away by.

9th November 2016


Love it,truly stunning different quality from other rums

7th November 2016

Smooth with cola

Probably not the best thing I have ever had, but it definitely is a smooth mixer with some cola (whatever your preference) that doesn't have too much of a bite. Coming from a longtime fan of Captain Morgan I would strongly suggest giving it a try, much smoother finish.

21st August 2016


I love it, and for the price? wow!

9th August 2016

The Rum with no kraken Headache

Tastes great mixed with lime and coke, have it all night and no Headache the next morning

3rd August 2016

"Perfumed Ponce"

Horrendous 'rum'....if it is indeed rum at all. Imagine if you will that someone bought a bog standard bottle of cheap rum, then whisked up some Parma Violets in a blender, added some chemical vanilla flavouring, put them altogether, and then as a finishing touch, tipped half a bottle of black Quink into the mixture.

A triumph of marketing and bottle over substance.

1st August 2016

Love The Kraken!

This has become my "go to" spiced rum to either sip (swig) straight, or mix. I love it!

28th May 2016

Love this rum but....

I think this rum tastes great and I can get so smashed on it. But the next day it doesn't matter if I drank 10 glasses or 2...I on the toilet with Niagara Falls out my butt every 2 hours. Horrible. I won't be buying it again. Too bad as it tastes great.

11th May 2016

The Kraken Will Have You Under It's spell!!!!

Okay so I want to start off by saying I don't like the taste of alcohol in fact I never have. I'm not a whiskey drinker or a bourbon drinker I mostly stick to beer. In fact I tried a jack and coke one time and I almost spit it out, I didn't even finish it. Well during Pirate Fest (of course duh!) this year the festival got caught in a monsoon and we all had to take shelter in our tents. My friend Tara offered me some of this stuff but told me that she only had it straight and that was how you had to drink it. She didn't have anything to cut it with so it was straight or no go. Now after being reluctant since I don't like the taste of alcohol I just went for it. I loved it and kept drinking it with my friends. Now it is strong and it has a big kick (it's 40%) but it doesn't have that super bitter "rubbing" alcohol taste. In fact it tastes sort of like spiced cider that you get during the holidays with cinnamon. I personally wouldn't ruin this rum by mixing it at all rather drinking it straight like a pirate! If you do mix it Kraken recommends Ginger Ale (they sell their own non-alcoholic ginger beer to mix it with) and that's all i would mix it with. As a guy who hates the taste of straight alcohol and only ever drinks hard stuff on special occasions like Pirate Fest or when I go out this is a great purchase. I honestly have a favorite rum.

10th April 2016

For the price point, a good rum to keep on hand

Admittedly, I am more of a scotch/whiskey drinker myself, however I do dabble in other spirits from time to time. Personally, this is a very good rum for keeping in the back of the cabinet so to speak. Rich, sweet molasses flavor comes through with notes of oak and vanilla on the finish. It is relatively simplistic in its delivery, as there is little complexity, however it makes a good cocktail (particularly with Coke, as the spices of that cola compliment it well). It is good neat or with a few drops of water to bring out the vanilla on the palate and nose.

I will also make note that age and oxidization do this rum many favors, so opening it and giving it a month or so stashed away will increase your appreciation for this spirit.

31st March 2016

Not Good

normally drink Appleton or Captain Morgan Spiced. Tried Kraken for the first time, not happy. Tasted awful. Back to Captain Morgan for me.

1st March 2016

Love it!

Title says it all. It's good mixed, better straight. The flavor is very assertive, and may come off as a bit too much for some. However, if you're the type that likes a sweeter rum, this is for you.

5th February 2016

How can people mix this excellent spiced rum with Coke or even Diet Pepsi?

A Must for Rum Lovers!

3rd February 2016

It's my black Krack!

I started drinking Kraken about 3 years ago, and cannot stand any other Rum now. Even though I have been a Rum and Coke drinker for years, I cannot stand any other spiced rums now. I have tried and tried to buy others, but miss my black Krack. I drink it with caffeine free Diet Pepsi.

31st January 2016

My mouthwash is nicer

Had a bottle for Christmas and gave it a few goes. I even tried mixing with Coke (shudder) but still tastes awful.
For me it tastes more like aftershock (from my student days) or mouthwash.

28th January 2016

Holy shit this is terrible

I've sucked down 6 whiskeys tonight, then tried to sip on some of this and tastes like Jagermeister with diarrhea. The worst.

25th January 2016

PJ Brighton

Love it, not as a drink on it's own, as I don't like straight spirits generally, but GREAT with ginger ale or Coke, oh and a slice of lime!
Not fussed about what snobby reviewers think, I love the packaging and the way too cool bottle it comes in!

I shall be buying this again and again! 10/10.
Oh, and yes have tried other 'expensive' rums but for my common palette it does just fine! :o)

22nd December 2015

Better Mixed with stuff

With all it's complexity, I really enjoy this more in a mixed drink. Ginger beer, Hurricanes, Coke, etc. Won't ever do as a straight shot again.... *shiver*... That being said, I really enjoy everything this has to offer for the price. Definitely more bang for what you pay.

17th December 2015

Best. Rum. Ever!!!

With its caramel notes, it may come across as a bit too sweet for some but at least has good character, drinks well on its own and is amazing mixed as well, unlike lamb's rum or sailor jerry's (which to be fair is just a brand boasting blandness) which has to be mixed to hide the roughness. This is the rum that truly got me into loving the black spirit. Only appletons or pink pidgeon do i rate higher, but only just

12th December 2015


Rubbish the star is a mistake can't give it away to any rum drinkers may be OK for non pirates

8th December 2015

Very smooth very , very good love it best of all I have tasted in more than 50 years

Bought through Amazon on spec cos I liked the bottle and my god what a suprise, deffo going to buy a lot more of this

1st December 2015


Good Rum to drink on it's own,just finished one now on Ron Zapaca mmm

14th November 2015

the BEST spiced rhum EVER !

OMG and I thought that Captain Morgan's spiced rum was the best - move over !!!!The flavor is exquisite and goes down very well with coke - my all-time favorite's and I don't think anything can top the Kraken!

9th November 2015

bates and the kraken

Fantasmagorical, crushed ice , fresh lime add a healthy belt of the dark stuff !! Get easy and relax , replenish as and when required

15th October 2015

Not terrible

way to off the wall with flavors, sweet molasses start followed by 10 uncomplimentary flavors including but not limited to licorice, cherry, cinnamon, plums... bottom line is it's not a simple rum but in this case I wish it was. Sometimes less is more. The only reason I'll give 3 stars is simply because at 47 percent it's at least easy to get drunk on!

21st July 2015

Oooh...sea monsters...

If you're after something that tastes like Tia Maria's dad then this is the rum for you. It's sweet and treacly and bears about as much relation to a good rum as a Bounty Bar does to a coconut. On the plus side it eats Sailor Jerry for breakfast and has a great bottle to stick a candle in after. But for 79p less you can get a bottle of Gosling Black Seal. That's a got a picture of a seal on the front. Sure, it's not as cool a kraken, but the contents tastes incomparably better.

1st April 2015

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

24th February 2015

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.

28th December 2014


Forgot to add - 9 /10 stars for me

28th December 2014


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.

28th December 2014

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-.

21st December 2014


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.

29th October 2014

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

22nd October 2014

Krake spiced

very very good

7th October 2014

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.

5th October 2014

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 !

9th September 2014

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.

30th May 2014


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.

26th April 2014

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

17th February 2014

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.

12th December 2013

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

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.

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.

Sheer quality

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

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

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!

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
