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+.
"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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Definitely not for the faint of heart! I think the only purpose for this lava is to add potency to mixed drinks. To each his own but surely not my cup of tea
Best way to heat up a cocktail, it won't take over or get lost in the mix. Most will like it as a gift, but hope for lot's of mixer.
Yes its a very strong rum and its not going to be a smooth sipper but Bacardi's overproof offering is just too much. Fine in a very low ratio with a mixer but at that point why not go for a standard 40% rum.
High alcohol content makes little room for enjoying any flavor that may exist, it might as well have been clear. If you're drinking to forget then this is the one. 151 is a cruel mistress that one can use an excuse for inexcusable behavior.
