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.

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.
