Kraken deal

Does this taste anything like Kraken? I've never tried it..?

Kraken deal

Works out to almost £21 a L. The Kraken deal the other day was £22.50 for a 1L.
Not a a massive saving really although Kraken is admittedly usually more expensive.

Kraken is poor. This is not. Pretty sweet in taste but miles better than its inspiration for sure. Good stuff.

Sounds like a poem

Yeah, but there's octopus on the bottle.

Cold - doesn't have the funny little glass carrying hoops like on the Kraken bottle.

40% eh

hmmmm

Too right, never understand why people go nuts for Kraken, it's just a fancy bottle and some marketing that increases what you pay for a fairly average rum.

What rum would you suggest? Need to get a branded bottle for friends this Christmas

Could get lots of different answers. Personally I don't mind Kraken, but would far rather have Havana 7yr, even Sailor Jerry's, both 40 % Havana Especial if your not really into the spiced rum, all reasonably priced. Obv Better rums out there depending on budget

If you want spiced then Bumbu is quite good, attractive bottle and good taste. For sipping there's Plantation, their XO is expensive but tasty.

Lidl also do "James Cook" spiced and dark. Personally never tried, but gets great reviews.

Is this 70cl or 1 litre ?

70cl

If you want spiced rum, I'd say Gosling's black seal. Don't go for Sailor Jerry's as someone suggested unless your friend likes artificial flavours.

If you liked the old version (original) sailor Jerry rum, then try Lamb's Spiced Rum. It's one of the closest in flavor before they changed the recipe. The new SJ isn't anywhere close in taste to the original and just tastes like a chemical mess. Tesco often do Lamb's Spiced for £12 - £14 a bottle. Squeeze a wedge of fresh lime in and some coke for a refreshing Cuba Libre = profit!
Havana 7 or Especial, with a wedge of fresh orange and coke is another winner. Enjoy

Here's one many of you won't have heard of, Dead Mans Finger Spiced rum. Very nice deadmansfingers.com/
I'm lucky enough to live in Cornwall but you still need to know where to look to find this stuff - enjoy

Wow
Fake rum cheaper than the original. Amazing. What a deal. How do they do it. Seriously. If it was a deal for a fake TV it wouldn't even be allowed on.

If your mate likes a sweeter rum or liked the old recipe Sailor Jerry. Then go for Old J Spiced rum, amazon sell it and it's near exactly the same as the old SJ recipe. Lovely taste of vanilla, spice and lime

El dorado 12 or 15 if you want a dark rum. I would have said Pussers in the past but that's gone downhill it seems.

Thanks everyone for the tips. Think I shall buy a recommended bottle for myself too.

Old J is seemingly the makers of the original Sailor Jerry before it was sold off or something.
Old J is lovely and not easily available but worth hunting down.

Another vote for El Dorado. Unfortunately haven't seen any good prices at the moment. I liked the Pussers Gunpowder Proof, it's more affordable right now too.

Don Papa, Bumbu, Cloven Hoof, Bayou, Black Magic, Deadman's Fingers and, as others have mentioned, Old J are all brilliant spiced Rums (some being towards the sweeter side).

Rebellion is also a pleasant rum, best mixed.

La Hechicera is a favourite of mine. It's a non sweet more serious rum which tastes feintly of Christmas pudding - so pretty apt for this time of year!
