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+.
Super hot will burn you right down to yer liver. Not for the faint hearted. Or young drinkers. Will most likely end the night early for them in a dizzy crumpled mass clutching the porcelain seat Don't like never did Seen a bar catch fire with it one time while consuming flaming shots in my younger days.
I've only used this to make holiday coquito, and even then it's still a bit harsh. Everyone complained it was too strong. I've since switched to regular proof rum.
A long time ago in Korea we cleaned out the local shop's stock of Bacardi gold rum and got the 151 instead. Was only after a drink or three did we discover that we were scoffing twice the proof than expected. Hilarity ensued.
Other than for crazy cocktails, not sure why this would be used for pleasure.
This is only good if you're at a party or if you're an alcoholic looking to save big, otherwise it is not good, very strong, not for me.
Definitely not for the faint of heart! I think the only purpose for this lava is to add potency to mixed drinks. To each his own but surely not my cup of tea
Best way to heat up a cocktail, it won't take over or get lost in the mix. Most will like it as a gift, but hope for lot's of mixer.
Goes well with anything. Complete package
Good for camping if you need to light a stove. Its 2 in 1:)
Yes its a very strong rum and its not going to be a smooth sipper but Bacardi's overproof offering is just too much. Fine in a very low ratio with a mixer but at that point why not go for a standard 40% rum.
This is the nastiest stuff i have ever had in my mouth. I have siphoned gasoline that had better flavor. If you are making Hurricanes at least find a better over proof rum to use. This stuff should be banned.
I just poured it down my drain. It achieved a 2 only because it is alcohol. Tasted like lighter fluid. I've had dark 151's that were amazing. This stuff was terrible.
...after reading all of the reviews, but still not my favourite overproof.
No other rum adds kick to your mixed drink like 151. Not to be taken straight or on the rocks.
High alcohol content makes little room for enjoying any flavor that may exist, it might as well have been clear. If you're drinking to forget then this is the one. 151 is a cruel mistress that one can use an excuse for inexcusable behavior.
Had this in New Orleans as part of a mix with another rum and fruit punch (Hurricane)...I was set after one drink and I am sure this was the rum that sent it over the top. I tried it by itself once...never again.
It is used as floaters in drinks or set on fire. If you seriously drink this as your drink of choice, you have a problem deep than your liver. Just leave it on the shelf and move on.
this takes the top of your head off, spins it around and then then delves into your brain matter with a spoon to remove any notion of rum drinking enjoyment you may have.
A jagerbomb for the rum drinking community
Great for a party starter!
Good considering the alcohol content.
This is our go-to for punches and hurricanes. It will do happy damage.
Beware this stuff, it will leave you staggering and stupid.
If you want to kick up a punch, try this one
An oldie but still (occasionally) a goodie. Memories of camping and downing -always as a mixer- a few glasses. Actually pretty harsh as overproofs go, but worthy of having.
