The Kraken Black Spiced Rum 70cl
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.
Clear, dark walnut brown.
Nutty, Vanilla and coffee with cherryade and a prickly pinch of old fashioned gunpowder.
Slightly sweet, cola-like vanillered spicy palate with espresso coffee, creamy caramel, cinnamon, cloves and gingerbread.
Long, peppery spiced finish.
