Barrell Craft Spirits’ 2018 Tale of Two Islands Rum saw an 8-year-old Jamaican pot still rum finished in ex-Islay peated single malt Scotch casks. Those flavor-packed casks have been used to finish this blend of straight bourbon whiskeys, imparting subtle notes of tropical Jamaican rum esters and brooding Islay peat smoke.
