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.

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

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.

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?

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.
