Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Bacardi 151 rum is one of the most well known overproof rums on the market. 151 tends to be the most common overproof strength because in pot stills this is the natural dillilation proof, but overproof rums in generally can range from 100-170+.
Pretty much everyone has consumed this rum.
I remember taking shots of this (then we chased it with tequila) when I was a kid. It has a very warm place in my heart. There was 151 , everclear , and of corse White Lightning. Love even the idea of this stuff!
Okay I have 151 mostly for fire stuff and just to say I have 151 in my pirate chest. Opening 151 and smelling it isnt too bad from the bottle vanilla oak like smell and I'm being serious. In the glass it smells only of alcohol to the point it hurts to sniff. Drinking it straight and yes I drank it straight for you guys (screw you all) it hits your tongue with a burn and then explodes even into more burn for a good minute. Its sour burning too. In coke its honestly not that bad. It doesn't have much of a flavor so when you pour it in coke everything is lost except for a little burnt oak but even that is so so faint. Still terrible.
This is made to be strong... not really taste good. And if that is what you are looking for then this is the bottle for you. It mixes well with other things though.
Makes you question your very existence. Thought it would be a fantastic idea to finish an epic night of drinking with this reject from hell. 4 Shots down and I was explaining to the gaddamn security guards why it's such a good idea to start a brawl with my friends in public.
Satan's piss. There is no drinking responsibly with this molotov cocktail. Guarantees you an epic night though.
This may be good for stripping paint, but definitely not for drinking. Tried sipping this and nearly threw it up. It would have been better if I did.
I was at a loud bar once where they hand-poured drinks, didn't have enough mixer on hand and had a new bartender on staff. I asked for a double rum and coke, got a lot more than I had bargained for.
Anyways, I rate this higher than the basic light gold or dark simply because you get more bang for your buck and there are no pretensions when going in. Also because the first time I got so drunk that I passed out in a puddle of my own vomit was on this stuff at the tender age of 14. Good memories.
It gets you even drunker after that! Fantastic value for money.
This is the definition of fire water. Great for parties - horrible to your sense of self worth.
"The higher the proof - the better the flavor - the less you have to drink:" A rule of mine I spose, and proven with this old standby, the epitome of the rule, and for me what began the journey in understanding overproof. When I think of Bacardi, I think of 151. I use the silver and the gold from time to time. But it is the 151 that makes the brand, and a flavor that resounds the loudest of all Bacardi's offerings.
This is a shot only kind of rum in my opinion. Harsh
ofc its intended to be a mixer and there is its place.Not my thing tho
This is the reason that i forgot a lot of things from my college classes. Harsh as hell with a burn like a devil. Pass on this and just drink some gas its cheaper.
It sounds exotic, and will get you drunk quicker than regular Bacardi rums, but that's the limit of its abilities.
I use to drink this stuff all the time because it was the one thing that I didn't have to share at parties.
Not enjoyable at all.
something to kill people throat with really bad rum
I bought 3 bottles of this stuff. I opened one and it tasted like industrial solvent. If you put rum coke you can hardly tell the difference between any rums, but if you drink it straight you'll know right away what I am talking about with this one!
Fortunately Kroger took the other 2 unopened bottles back. But I was still stuck with one opened bottle, and it's a sin to waste rum, even low-end rum. So I cut the Bacardi 50-50 with Cruzan, and somehow strugged through it.
I couldn't do it again, except perhaps in a siege in wartime.
Very strong, very harsh, very bad. It must be doing more damage than good for the Bacardi portfolio. I would NOT recommend it to my drinking buddies. It's a waste of time.
It's a high proof mixer that's all that really needs to be said
To all the people who want's to get drunk as fast as possible... this is the rum for you!
The taste is not great, but hey, you don't buy this to drink it straight up.
More bite than the Bacardi Silver and Gold, 151 is still lacking the flavor that you associate with Caribbean rums.
Can't really see the point of this. Take a very average rum and keep it average. At least if you bottle at 40% you can try and hide how average it is. Will not be featuring in my drinks cupboard - ever. If I did have some, then I might use it as a cleaner for my computer keyboard or something similar. Best to be avoided. Maybe I am biased as I had a really bad evening having had too much of it!
This is a straightforward ball busting overproof that I primarily use to float atop other rum cocktails.
Except for doing a single "silly shot" here and there, I never mix this rum except to top off (or to flame) cocktails containing more appropriate mixing rums.
It sure does serve its purpose!
I prefer my rum straight or on the rocks so this one is to strong for me. I guess this would be a good rum for getting hammered.
Recieved only a slightly higher rating than Bacardi Superir from me simply because it takes less of it to forget you're drinking terrible rum.m spend the money to get a better bottle.... unless you're looking to lb wow party guests with flaming shots.
