Kraken Black Spiced rum

Hi all, Today I am reviewing Kraken Black Spices Rum.Reads the product label "As seen through the eyes of imagination Bizzaare & Fierce Sea Creatures" . I have never seen such unique branding of any rum. It sure does sound intriguing and exotic.  It comes in an attractive bottle and looks unique. Apart from the branding lets find out if it really lives up to my expectations. SJ's on tackling the sea I come Kraken..Enjoy my tasting notes.
