Kraken Black Spiced Rum
Bottled by Kraken Rum Co
Lawrenceburg, IN
94 proof

By Gerard Heidgerken of Bilgemunky.com

We return once again to the world of dark rum, but find it not quite the same as before. And as with most unexpected changes in life, we can blame sea monsters. Spiced rum is a market long dominated by Captain Morgan’s Original Spiced and its like—amber rums with the inclusion of various spices “and other natural flavors” to add a hearty, yet candy-like quality to make them a bit more approachable, plus giving a little extra flair to the traditional Cuba Libre (aka Rum & Coke).

Kraken Rum broke with tradition when it decided to release its blacker-than-black spiced rum. On pouring, it’s easy to notice a quite different array of scents otherwise not found in dark rum (or if found, too subtle to be readily noticed). Vanilla, nutmeg and clove are all matched nicely with the heavy “rummy” notes beneath.

In the mouth, Kraken definitely places the requisite alcohol burn front and center, although rather than the deep warmth of some other rums, it’s more surface-level and, well, burn-like. This is likely due to Kraken’s 47% alcohol content, vs. the 40% all the previous rums we’ve discussed. Warming on the tongue produces a strong oily butterscotch flavor, and leaves a finish that sort of tastes like a campfire (but in a yummy way.)

Spiced rums aren’t generally meant to fully stand on their own, but rather as a prominent player in mixed drinks. Accompanied with Coke or any number of other concoctions, Kraken can definitely deliver, and brings a new spin to the dark rum family.
