The bottle kicks ass and is really easy to drink out of with the little finger handles.
But well, it sorta sucks for the price.
It doesn't go down smooth and doesn't have a very good taste for spiced rum.
For the same price I much prefer Sailor Jerry. Sadly, Sailor Jerry doesn't' have a cool name or come in a really cool bottle. Then again, I'm not a huge fan of Spiced Rum to begin with. I was really hoping that the Kraken would be really tasty and the perfect bottle to carry around in my back pack at the burn.
The thing I actually like about Sailor J. is that its very very easy and tasty to drink out of a flask... even a flask that has been in my pocket for a couple of hours and is sorta warm.
I am not a fan of spiced rum. (Or spiced whiskey.) IMOO the spice is there to cover up a liquor that is not quite so good. I like to drink my liquor neat from a shot glass. four that I like are, in no particular order:
- Pyrat xo Reserve
- Bacardi 8 (the only good thing from Bacardi IMOO)
- Myers Original Dark
- Sea Wynde
