So, you have bounced by Captain Morgan Rum in the local liquor store one too many times, (or maybe you’re like me and have *fuzzy* memories- but you know they’re bad 😦 .) You want something different and unexpected, right? Here is a new(er) rum for you to try.
The Kraken Black Spiced Rum has gained recent fame within the past few years for its very uncanny (and hilarious) “RELEASE THE KRAKEN!” commercials, but the product alone is *insert pretentious British accent* “an enticing medley of flavors including cinnamon and ginger.” This rum, distilled from molasses made with sugar cane of Trinidad, is heavy on the palette and a delicious twist on any traditionally rum concoction you plan to make. (SEE I can make stuff sound fancy!) For those of you who are not fond of “brown liquors”, Kraken (in my girly opinion), is “light” enough to mix into a pina colada with great results, but may also be consumed with a simple Coca-Cola without your esophagus begging for mercy. Vanilla Coke on ‘roids. It has a very sweet, smooth finish- so tuck your razors away as you won’t have to deal with any freshly-grown chest hairs with this one!
