Alright folks, we’re embarking on an adventure this summer and you’re coming along. If you’re anything like us and thinking about hot days brings memories of rum-filled cocktails, then you’re probably already familiar with the OG black spiced rum brand, The Kraken®. And now, they’ve taken the “gold standard” of rum to a whole new high- put your hands together for The Kraken® Gold Spiced Rum.

Known for its rich and smooth Black Spiced Rum, The Kraken® has finally ventured into the gold spiced rum category. The new rum was released this April and is already a major hit with cocktail lovers and rum admirers alike.

In fact, they even conducted a third-party double-blind test with The Kraken® Gold Spiced Rum and a top gold rum brand. And more than 70% of participants preferred the former and confirmed that it had a “superior taste” and a “smooth finish.”1

And talking of superior taste and smooth finish, here’s what you can expect from The Kraken® Gold Spiced Rum. On the nose, it reveals a sweet brown medley of caramel, oak, and banana bread. On the palette, you can taste flavours of molasses and dark spice fade into caramelized sugar, with a slight finish of toasted oak and vanilla. And of course, it has a smooth AF finish too.
