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.

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.

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.

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.
