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

I agree that Pyrat is delicious. I am not specifically a fan of dark rum, but it's very smooth, and quite tasty even without a mixer.
