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 harsh and not great tasting at all but I felt like I was sent to another dimension after drinking a few shots. Would recommend if you only care about results rather than taste
Shoot this on a dare, yes, but not for sipping. I use this in jungle juice instead of Everclear since it's close to the same proof with that additional rum taste. I see this like Malibu. This isn't a rum to be taken seriously, but it will add some dimensions to your gatherings, and mess up everyone. Try cutting up a whole pineapple, add a can of maraschino cherries (and the liquid), a 2L of 7up, a gallon of OJ, a half gallon of Cranberry juice, and a couple bottles of this stuff. Serve chilled in a paint bucket or kiddy pool.
There are much better overproof rums out there (e.g. Hamilton, Lost Spirits, Plantation) which actually are interesting and really tasty. This stuff, by comparison, deserves its terrible reputation. It's just bad booze.
I bought a bottle of this stuff for a camping party and had the best time ever being drunk. Yeah it tastes like it should be an industrial solvent with a subtle spicy vanilla aftertaste; but it doesn't take much to feel damn good; didn't make me puke my ass off like when I similarly get blasted on other drinks; and no hang over at all. Kinda like tequila, this stuff makes you feel more high and not so much a chilled out buzz. Almost like a psychoactive mescal. It made us kinda manic. We set all sorts of things on fire. But all in all it was the best time drinking I have had. I still had about half of the bottle left and it lasted a week of daily cocktail experiments. I think it blends well with almost anything really, but it will knock your dick into the dirt if you are not careful. So for the super low price, great euphoria with no sickness, and how long it lasted, 151 gets a 10 for me. As long as you respect it, expect a sweet time :)
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.
"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 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.
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.
