Tasting Kraken Black Spiced Rum

By Miguel in Tasting , Kraken

I was walking during my holidays when I saw this very nice bottle on a shop for just 19, around £16, so I thought what the hell, let’s buy it.
And here I am reviewing it for you.

“Umm! First time I tasted this one I was quite dissapointed but after tasting it again on a copita glass this Kraken shows a really nice side”

85
Kraken Black Spiced Rum
70cl / 40% - A dark spiced Caribbean rum introduced to the UK in Spring 2010, Kraken's old-style bottle and superlative packaging seem to earmark it out for greatness, and perhaps it will help some of those many thousands of punters nursing an old-recipe-Sailor-Jerry-sized hole in their hearts.

This dram has a treacle-like color.

Nose (82): more than average. sugar cane, vanilla, citrus, cinnamon, nutmeg.

Palate (87): smooth, oily. sugar cane, brown sugar, nutmeg, candies, coca cola, spices, cinnamon.

Finish (85): longer than average. sugar cane, brown sugar, spices, burnt sugar.

So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Kraken Black Spiced Rum with 85 points over 100.
