I think darn near anything can qualify as a rum barrel. I forget which book it was in but I'm pretty sure Berry states that "Rum Barrel" was one of those drinks with such a good name that every Polynesian restaurant had their own version. The only criteria I'd apply are:

1. It's gotta be bulging at the seams with rum. It's a rum BARREL, not a rum pail.
2. It's gotta be tasty


The BOR definitely meets both of those requirements.

Looking forward to doing a rum barrel showdown. My go to is the Mai Kai version David posted above that was first published in Taboo Table and currently shared on the Atomic Grog. It's mighty tasty and super easy for batching up for parties. Will need to try the others posted here.

Is this a good place to post an experimental home recipe? This is my first crack at a rum barrel at home. I wanted the modifiers to be kind of dry (as far as tiki cocktails go) to leave the rum breathing space. I also learned last weekend that going all out with the high proof brands is counterproductive for everyone concerned.. So this has:

1 oz Appleton signature
1 oz lightly aged rhum agricole (JM gold)
3/4 oz light Cuban rum (Havana 3)
1/2 oz black overproof rum (goslings 151)
1/2 oz lime juice and 1/4 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz Falernum
3/4 oz honey syrup
1 oz grapefruit juice
1/2 oz clementine juice
1/4 oz allspice dram.

It's very tasty, but I think this is a stop on the road to perfection, as I think there's a touch too much sweetness (although the "core" of honey is quite smooth, and allows the rhum to shine through as I'd hoped) - needs the Falernum or the honey syrup dialling back just a little. The jury's out on the clementine juice, too!

The rhum agricole that I like so much really comes through, which is a plus - however, the Appleton is kind of lost, and it left me wondering if something stronger and more funky (or just darker) might be a better choice next time (ie tomorrow!).

Any tips on improving this? Cheers!

I was on an OFTD kick when I posted this but really instead of that do the 1/2ea EL12/S&C blend, it taste much better.
