Kraken Black Spiced Rum Review

Kraken Rum As you may have seen on here I've recently been trying a lot of different spirits to broaden my knowledge and taste profile.

When offered the opportunity to try some Kraken Black Spiced Rum I jumped at the chance, my rum knowledge isn't huge but i certainly enjoy drinking it and I'm hoping to try much more also.

A cracking drink this is, sweet, juicy, treacle, syrup, Christmas cake spices and a massive dose of deliciousness.

This is a drink I could happily sip of for a long time, and I suspect it would also happily work well as a long drink with cola or lemonade, or as part of a cocktail also.

A damn good rum, and one I will be drinking a lot of in the future.

Thanks to the Kraken rum for the generous sample.
