I tried the Kraken a while back. Unusual but pleasant enough. Wouldn't turn down a bottle but I'd rather drink something more traditional. The Mount Gay is very nice but the best I've drunk is Chairman's Reserve from St Lucia, a lovely sipping rum.

After a day at sea we used a take a few glasses of Woods Old Navy Rum, 57% by vol.
Used to spark us up after a tiring day.

I do love my Rum too! Sailor Jerry or Morgan's Spiced if I'm out with my mates. I also like Havana Club 7.
Another thumbs up for Kraken.
It's was my birthday last week, and whilst doing my weekly shop in Morrisons a paper wrapped bottle caught my eye. Rumbullion - made by Ableforth... it's a spiced rum. Quick look up on Rumratings.com gave some good reviews and a recommendation to drink neat.
Now, I must say there's not many rums I have enjoyed neat, but this on is really nice and I enjoyed every drop! £33 for 70cl @ 42.6%
I have a bottle of Mount Gay, too. But It's just OK.

If you can get hold of a bottle of Morgan's Black Spiced (not ordinary Morgan's spiced) that's worth a go. Very good.

For fans of The Kraken . . . it's £25 a litre on Amazon atm.

Kraken is a great drink.
Another vote for Rumbullion here, if you like spiced rum try this neat. It's something else.

Brother got me a bottle for Xmas.
Perhaps not one for the purist, just want to know if it's in the raffle prize category!!

another rum beggar here too, most pubs stock morgans spiced or sailor jerry round here, don't like the latter but will suffer the cap'ns wrath the next day, tried kraken and it's pretty good too, Bacardi oakheart as well. i'll look into some more of these others as I do like a drop or two. I did find an elderflower liqueur at tescos before Christmas, made some nice cocktails involving brandy and champagne, lemonade if you have a sweet tooth, I don't know if anyone else has made and named it yet? if not then i'm patenting it and calling it the slickfinger.
