Barrell Bourbon Cask Finish Series: Tale of Two Islands Review

Barrell Bourbon Cask Finish Series: Tale of Two Islands Review


In 2018, Barrell Craft Spirits produced Tale of Two Islands Rum.  It was a Jamaican rum matured in peated Islay single malt barrels.  Those empty casks have been used to finish this blend of straight bourbons.


Proof: 118.22°


The blend:

Indiana bourbons aged 5,6, & 9 years

Maryland bourbons aged 5 & 6 years


Derived mashbill: 73% corn, 23% rye, 4% malted barley


Color 👁️: Mahogany


Nose 👃: Melon. Buttered toffee. Werther’s Originals. Marshmallow. Ripe banana.


Palate 👅: Coconut. Honey. Black pepper.  Melon. Peat. Black walnut. Ripe banana. Oily mouthfeel.


Finish 🏁: Black pepper.  Honey. Ripe banana. Lemon zest. Long in length.


Overall thoughts?  I love it!  It’s fun and unique.  Character from both the peat and funky rum show up… and you want to experience this.
