The Kraken Rum

This product was received for review just in time, as the bottle that I had purchased for myself was almost empty.  That bottle was pretty much drained during last years Super Bowl by the $6 Million Dollar Man.  (Been a long time since I referenced my friends.)  This was an impressive feat, considering that he was having a kidney stone attack during the game.  For the uninitiated, The $6MMm man is a a walking, talking pile of replacement parts.  His left kidney has been replaced by a catalytic converter froma 1984 Chevy Monte Carlo.  His right kidney consists of a cheese cloth wrapped around a coffee press.  I'm guessing that it was a pretty big stone.

The Kraken is a spiced rum.  The natural thing to do is to compare it to the captain.  It's not as sweet, but it is spicier and more tannic.  Lets face it.  The captain is the Carson Palmer of rum; coasting on an unearned reputation, and at this point, we're not sure what team he's playing for.
