From Trinidad and Tobago.
An excellent spiced rum, with utterly brilliant packaging! This was launched in the UK in early 2010, and it has an extraordinarily rich, spicy flavour. Named for the legendary sea monster, Kraken is a blend of Caribbean rums that should certainly suit any fans of rich, navy-style rum.
Pours sienna brown with copper edges and offers aromas of chico lollies, creamy soda, subdued vanilla and caramel with the spices otherwise indiscernible. Medium weighted and broad in the mouth with moderate sweetness including flavours of chico lollies, dilute maple syrup and creamy soda. Pleasant spicy warmth to finish. Not overtly spiced in the traditional sense. It would be more compelling at a higher proof. Easy drinking.
