Given to me as a gift from Puerto Ricans, this overproof is harsh but still somewhat maintains rum flavours. Great for pyrotechnics!

It's not that bad for a 70% alcohol rum. Really good drink to get drunk fast

Bacardi 151 can be transported inside a checked luggage only. If you take it inside the cabin of the airplane, it will most likely ignite and burn on its own. So as it comes to human consumption, not really.

Yeah, you've all been there. You know what I'm talking about. This one will remind you of the delicate scent of the bowl of a freshly-scrubbed toilet inside some no-name dive bar in your home town. I don't know how you take a liquor and make it taste even more alcoholic than it already is, so I guess mad props to Bacardi for figuring *that* one out.

In case you're one of the few, the proud, the sheltered who managed to avoid this in your salad days, please do yourself a favor and keep avoiding it. The only reason to get a good 151 rum is for tiki drinks, and this ain't a good 151 rum. These days you can order pretty much any alcohol you want online, so there's no reason to suffer through the pain of ruining your carefully concocted zombie with an amazingly bad overproof float. Do yourself a favor and order a $35-ish bottle of the amazing Hamilton 151 online. It'll get you just as messed up if that's what you're after, and you'll enjoy the process a lot more.

I think 151 was accidentally mistaken as proof, when it's actually an octane rating. Pure jet fuel.

This has its uses. Worth keeping around for when needed.

Nothing that i would drink for taste but if your looking to get drunk it will do the job

You want to get drunk as fast and quick as possible? Look no further!

I bought this rum two times, one was a bad time in my life and two was to make a party drink. Approach it that way haha.

Also, very mixable in Diet Coke or Pepsi. Makes it a roughy, but do able ride.

This is your drink, if you can stomach it. Taste is terrible, burns like hell and is something no one should ever be buying off store shelves.

Not the biggest fan of overproofs. For this reason, just a little hard to love when it hits like it does.

With Bacardi and my palette it is becoming a common theme that the rum they produce it’s horrible. I’m not a fan at all of the over proofs to start with but pusses and black seal are miles ahead in complexity of flavour and drinkability.

Mi primera impresión un poco más y acaba con todos en la cata solo puede ser para efectos decorativos alcohol puro se enciende con mucha facilidad

I remember setting cap fulls of this stuff on fire with my college dormmate. It WAS Alabama! Drink this on a dare only

Posted over 3 years ago by Tim Sheehan from United States with 14 ratings

This is very potent stuff, good for mixing with. Can be over kill due to the alcohol level.

Will get you drunk. Literal fire. Sometimes it tastes like......vanilla? After the vomiting.

This rum appears to have been designed solely for show, either setting fire to stuff (cocktails) or "one-upmanship" (my balls are bigger than yours) types of drink challenges. Look it up on Youtube to find a video of a Latino guy skulling an entire bottle, I don't know if he is still alive, but for sure he puked after the video. This is not a tasty rum, it is a hazardous material.

Bacardi151 a good overproof rum for cocktails and shooters. Not made for sipping. A great shot at the end of the night to turn your light out. You will feel the burn of the 75% alcohol going through your body. Not for the weak.

Comparing this with Cruzan aged 151, it has the same belt and burn, but this one lacks any actual interesting flavor. Granted the Cruzan is aged, so perhaps not quite fair. If you have a choice go with something else, but this one packs the punch just fine :)

It starts to evaporate as soon as you open the bottle. If you want to get wasted in a hurry this it the Rum for you. I served it at a party and had most of my company wondering where they were. It is not for the sipper...........It is for the hard core that want to quick buss.

Ideaal voor als je eens een goeie long island ice tea wil maken

Your review – you could include things like color, aroma, body, taste, finish, spice, smoothness… really anything you want! You can also share an optional picture of the drink (or better still - you enjoying it!) by attaching a photo below.

Este ron sabe a puro alcohol, no tiene sabor de ron

It is not fair to match this up with your standard rums. This is a whole different level. This rum changed my life. It was instrumental in my losing my virginity, claiming the virginity of scores of dates, and a few paternity suits. Not once did I catch my face on fire. Some people just can't handle their liquor.

Gasoline, worst over proof, great for teenagers to get drunk I guess, never again
