The name of this rum is based on an ancient legend according to which a ship carrying a load of Caribbean rum was sunk by the octopus, a terrible sea monster, and never appeared again.
In the glass, The Kraken Black Spiced appears with a deep, dark color-like the ink of a Kraken. It spreads aromas of strong caramel with a hint of chocolate and a pleasant spice, but without having an alcoholic bite despite its slightly increased drinking strength. Other notes include molasses, liquorice, subtle plum and nuts. The rum from Trinidad and Tobago also smells of cocoa and coffee in the background.
The taste of this spiced rum convinces with its sweet spice, espresso and gingerbread. Dark cherries and notes of molasses round off the gentle drinking pleasure. The finish is surprisingly mild, long and not too spicy despite the nuances of pepper.
Production of The Kraken Black Spiced Rum
After distillation, the rum is stored in bourbon barrels for up to 2 years. After this ripening period, the flavouring is followed by 13 spices, including cinnamon, ginger and cloves.
