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!

This is our go-to for punches and hurricanes. It will do happy damage.

Beware this stuff, it will leave you staggering and stupid.

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.

now as you know about me i'm a fervent rum coke mixer, i mix rums in my coke that give others heart issues when i tell them. i'm just not the sipper, and here's the irony because here's clearly a rum you should mix and let that be the one i only drank neat (you all know this stuff only gets ordered when everybody is already beyond repair). the only word that comes to mind after doing shots of this stuff is "why?". can't help you there.

Tried a couple of shots of this, was like drinking mouthwash, without the Minty Freshness

Expected this one to really overtake the taste in a mixer but you can put quite a lot in your mixer before it gets to harsh. A dangerous drink ;)

It either improves my golf game, or makes me not care about my score. LOL

Not a rum to drink alone, not a sipping rum by any measure. But, if mixed with Coke, at least to me, it isn't too bad...and the level of drunkeness experienced is pretty inexpensive per ounce.

Plus, I like to taste the burn from the alcohol. Not for the faint of heart

I use this for lighting spent lime halves in tiki drinks. In my cabinet, it is primarily used for lighting fires and stripping paint. Good to keep on hand for showmanship and livening up a rum punch in a bind.

I was once at party where my options were Bud Light or Bacardi 151 straight. I opted for the Bacardi 151 mixed with small ice cubes. I expected to have my mouth set on fire. I was surprised to find that it wasn’t nearly as bad as I anticipated and proceeded to polish off 2 glasses of it. Yeah, it’s strong, but it’s overproof so you know that already. You can do way worse with other overproofs.

Only good in mixed shots. Really not worth it on any level and I don’t see what Bacardi still makes this.

Recently sampled a glass at a bar in Manila which has obviously been around for a few years. Absolutely loved it although the lady I was with lost the use of her limbs! Seriously she did. Strong but relatively smooth for an ovenproof rum. Can't buy it any longer in the UK.

I've never been in a booze shop that didn't carry this. Though it's rocket fuel it is a good mixer, just adjust the dosage. Also essential if you want to pretend your at Trader Vic's and mix up a Zombie. Juice, particularly Mango, is a good choice to kill the high ETOH burn. I usually pop off the screen that Bacardi attaches so you don't incinerate yourself. Kids don't play with matches around this one.

The saying 'white girl wasted' is the first thing I think of when 151 is mentioned. Potent, ethanol, burn.
Might be ok in a cocktail if you're brave.
I've only ever drank this by force. Probably the only way I'd drink it again.

If you want something to mess you up and fast this is for you. Tastes surprisingly decent for 75% apv but I’d stay away, this stuff is the devil.

Posted over 1 year ago by whyisalltherumgone from United States with 6 ratings

That's all I can say for it. No other reason to buy it.

This isn’t a rum. It’s gasoline. That being said, there are drink recipes which call for flammable booze, and this is the most drinkable of that lot. Only to be used in specific blends.

This is only good for lighting on top of shots for effect. No taste and all burn.

Posted almost 2 years ago by Brandon from United States with 10 ratings

Stack this one up next to real moonshine, it punches just as hard. enjoyable straight up and in any kind of mix you like. That is if you know how to handle it.

Posted about 2 years ago by Jason from United States with 47 ratings

Potent indeed, and that's how it's designed to be. Definitely will shorten your night a bit.

I worked in a bar once where we threw this everywhere and lit the place up. It was fun. Another time we had a 151 drinking contest and I cheated by filling my shot glass with iced tea. So that I didn't die. That's all this is good for. It's awful and will mess you up.

This is great imo, just a little bit in your coke and it tastes great! But keep it to that little bit! For taste and for mental sanity 😉I've got some blank spots in my mind from this rum 😂 drunk in a minute kinda stuff!

When I go on cruise ships they throw this rum punch at you which is very sweet with the juices, but I have learned the hard way to stay away from. Sick is the word within an hour or if you want to act stupid. Not in my bar.

Solvent, hot, faint caramel

Not particularly offensive

some bitterness develops when diluted, even maybe oak?
