A drink as strong and dark as kraken (giant squid) ink…94 proof and laden with flavor…The label doesnt indicate it, but the rum is distilled in Trinidad and Tobago… a truly monstrous hit of chocolate and molasses, cut with Christmas spices cinnamon and allspice, cloves and maybe even some ginger. Vanilla is big on the finish. Overall the effect is quite impressive. The Kraken is imported black rum from the Caribbean and blended with over 11 secret spices. The rum takes its name from the mythical sea beast which is said to have wreaked havoc with tall ships and rum running vessels throughout history. While the smooth taste of The Kraken lends itself to be enjoyed as a sipping rum, it can also be enjoyed as a key ingredient in traditional cocktails like the Kraken & cola. For an interesting and new taste experience, try The Kraken with your favorite energy drink. The rick black color takes its hue from the mysterious ink that, as legend has, the Kraken covered its prey with during fierce battles at sea. The Krakens proprietary bottle is a replica of a Victorian Rum bottle and features two handles allowing for easy portability (as well as potability).
