I like the design and everything. Even the spooky theremin kind music on the website is great.

Hmm, I'd like to try that rum. Too bad I don't think it will ever be available here...

But isn't that what trips to the US are great for? Procuring rare and locally unavailable boozes!

I doubt they'll ever have it here either but it looks pretty good based on all the tiki central feedback.

Found a bottle here in Maryland; there are notes of vanilla in it and the rum it reminded me of most was Seven Tiki. Have had it straight and with Coke Zero and if you like spiced rum, both ways were pretty tasty. Have not tried to mix any cocktails with it yet.

The Kraken Rum website's locater was very useful towards procuring it. Actually found both the 750ML and 1.75 size bottles; they were running $20 and $30 respectively.

Cheers,
Rupe

Funny your message showed up just now- am on my way back to the local supermarket where I saw a bottle the other day.
Made me think it was available everywhere. After looking around this weekend, apparently not.

Picked up a bottle of Kraken the other night and shared it with a party of friends. Pretty good stuff straight. Now so spicy. Dark color made me think black strap, but the flavor was not that strong. Very smooth, slightly sweet, but not a lot. Caramel. Tasted next to Seven Tiki, Seven Tiki is VERY vanilla.

I enjoyed it a lot and so did everyone at the party. I'd get it again.

Finally found a bottle for me self here locally. Took a nip, immediately got some choco/coffee notes. Poured a shot over a scoop of vanilla ice cream ---immaculate! Enjoyed some with seltzer and lime as well. I think I like it. Something good to have on hand for sure.

Got another bottle and tried it without the distraction of a party. Too sweet. Not liking it so much. Molasses.

I like Kraken...to me it's like spiced coruba. I knabbed a giant bottle for $21.00.
The only other spiced rum we buy is Matusalem.
