I normally wouldn't take a 151 rum straight, but this was actually a pleasant experience. Very full of flavor with vanilla and lime, the spice is not overpowering, and the burn is slight. A fun rum.

I didn't expect to like this much given it's low price. And flavored rums aren't usually my favorite.

But this has a beautiful nose of heavy vanilla and a hint of lime that smelled surprisingly good. I was eager to try it straight at 151 proof. To my surprise, I didn't have any difficulty drinking it straight.

The 75.5abv really counterbalances the super sweet vanilla flavor. In fact, I found this better straight than after I added water.

The question for me was "which is the best overproof rum, the Old J Tiki Fire Spices, or the Lemon Hart 151 (the two highest rated overproof rums as of this review)"? That was a tough question as the Lemon Hart has a more traditional rum flavor which I usually prefer.

I tried them straight, and then I mixed them with cold water. Though I'm generally not a huge fan of flavored rums (which the Old J Tiki Spiced is), I really like the Old J Tiki Spiced. The sweet vanilla flavor somehow works at a high abv.

I rate both overproof rums a low 8, but I'll give this an edge over the Lemon Hart. I guess it's the sweet tooth in me.

A very powerful rum that definitely blows the cobwebs away, however it's still smooth despite its sheer strength. This mixes very well with apple juice and I don't usually like apple juice.

When you sample this one don't give up after the first kiss! All Overproofs are fire, of course, but a second and subsequent sips will change the profile considerably. Novocaine, becomes a river of lime down the tongue becomes concentrated spicy goodness. A treat compared to most 151 rums.

An explosion of flavour in your mouth followed by a strong vanilla taste. Overproof but so smooth!

Dark Matter was my all time favourite spiced rum until I found this tipple. Very powerful drink and yet remains smooth and pleasant to the last drop. Still to decide if I prefer it with coke or ginger beer.

I first tried this in St Ives, Cornwall. The barmaid asked if I wanted ice, coke or lemonade with it. I prefer straight up. She said are you sure. She watched my first sip and reaction...blimey my mouth was on fire! But once the inferno was out and my taste buds shrivelled, it was ok. I purchased a bottle for special occasions !!!
I recommend this, even if it is just for the fun factor

As a shot it's deep in vanilla flavour... Harsh on the flavour and not amazing on ice but better than original old j...

Just yes. If you drink it neat, then this is a sipper, I mixed with ginger beer and it was lovely. Not a regular drink just for the odd one now and again.

The smell is sensational. Absolutely full of flavour. The spices are perfect. It is smooth, spicy and special. A slight increased quality would make it a 10
