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).
It's true, the Kraken Rum is indeed "Strong, Rich, Black, and Smooth." I was a bit taken by surprise when I read that The Kraken happens to be 92 proof instead of the standard 80, but surprisingly enough it is easy to sip, shoot, or mix. The smell is unlike any rum you'll ever try, and the flavor easily matches that. My only regret is that I haven't been able to find it locally, which is why I've come searching for it here. Try it at least once, it's very good and the price is not over the top at all.
