Booze that tastes good, looks good, and comes at a reasonable price? Now, there’s a holiday gift! The Kraken Rum is a black spice Caribbean rum with a solid kick and a strong molasses, cinnamon, and vanilla flavor. It’s 94 proof, so it packs quite a punch served straight.
A kraken is a giant squid, so the fun concept is that it’s a strong liquor as dark as squid ink. The packaging is beautiful, making it a great gift on two fronts. (Also, the finger holes at the top are surprisingly satisfying to hold on to)
It runs about $20 a bottle, but the graphics alone make it look like it’s worth much more. Know anyone who loves a nice spiced rum, can handle their liquor and cares about aesthetics? This is the gift for them!
