On the palate this flavored Rum becomes decidedly more angular with sharp spice and ginger notes and a strong medicinal flavors that overwhelms.

Being a huge fan of both Rum and ginger I had high hopes for Spytail.

Analysis

Spytail is not unique in being a product with ostentatious packaging and a labored backstory. I had high hopes for this flavored Rum as I love Rum and ginger and often use ginger elements in my Rum cocktails. Sadly the Spytail failed to inspire cocktail creation and made me crave a tasty aged Rum.

How to Enjoy

Enjoy the Spytail in cocktails as this is not a sipping spirit in my estimation.
