Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This rum has a wonderful molasses and toffee flavor which makes it indispensable for many Tiki cocktails. It was made to be mixed, so if you're drinking it neat and wondering why your throat has melted you need to remember that it's 75% alcohol! It is not made to be sipped neat.
This is one of my favorite overproofs, right near the top behind Hamilton 151, the best in my opinion, and light years ahead of Bacardi. I even prefer it to some of the Lost Spirits overproofs.
If you want to escape the world quickly and you aren't the captain this is the way to go.
It has kick and is kind of tasty but nothing about it would make me buy it again.
Good mixer but that's about it IMHO. To many good rums to even have this one on the list.
Cruzan 151 is one of those finds at most Caribbean islands when you need to clean wounds or maybe peel paint, but this vile liquid is not for human consumption.
This one has some serious thump! Lots of alcohol aroma and it carries through in the taste if you try it neat. That said, it does have a good rum flavor once you get past the burn. The aftertaste is smooth and mellow once the burn passes. Great in Tiki and other strong drinks.
This is currently my go-to rum. Not sure about people complaining about it burning, when mixed I find it quite smooth. And the butterscotch/toffee notes are great.
It's a 151 rum! It will kick your butt! Great for getting the night started. It has a strong after taste of hot spice that warms you as it goes down. I enjoyed as a shot but not in mixed drinks.
Good overproof for cocktails, cheaper than bacardi
The light aging this recieves makes it worlds better than Bacardi 151 IMHO, and it is now my go-to for certain tiki drinks such as the "Ankle Breaker"
burns on the way down and the way back up but still somehow smoother than Bacardi 151
not a great rum its burn the wole way thru like paint remover
This is pretty good overproof rum for the price. Most people put their overproof rum in coke and can't tell the difference. I drink it diluted 50-50 with vodka, so the taste comes through. And this has a nice rummy taste. Way better than Bacardi 151, for example, which tastes like industrial solvent.
Ran across this one at a fondue restaruant this evening. It's got what I consider to be a typical "gold" rum flavor with a huge kick on the back end when it hits bottom. If you're not ready for it it'll catch you flat footed. A good rum if you like over proof though.
