The 151's are getting a bit hard to find; just ran into this in NH. A delicious twist on the original Goslings Black Rum that is drier and yet carries the deep rum flavours. A huge step beyond the Bacardi 151 (bad rum+lighter fluid). Can't wait to try this in any number of tiki drinks!!
I am a fan of Goslings Black Seal 80 proof, so I decided to go one step further and try my first overproof. Expectations: I thought that spirit of that content of alcohol would burn my insides immediately, so imagine my surprise after first sip when not only it did not melt my stomach, but also I could taste very pleasant flavours on the palate (even though it's 75,5%!). Definitely good choice, this rum turned my Dark'n'Stormy truly into a stormy cocktail.
After enjoying the 'regular' version of this dark rum I thought I'd try this 151 version. It's nice but not quite as smooth as some other 151's I've sampled.
Tasted off of Buck’s shelf. Pours dark gold. Overpowering alcohol aroma. Works as a floater. Almonds and fire.
Intense molasses on the nose, you don’t even realize it’s 150 Proof, can easily knock you out cold, i use it mainly to top off tiki cocktails
This 151 rum works great as a float in tropical cocktails. You can also have it as a sipper but I'd rather have an OFTD in my glass.
Packs a punch - a milk punch!
I have a milk punch recipe that asks for a little dark OP rum, this is perfect! And of course a great float!!! For me it's definitely an ingredient not a sipper!
After discussing rum with a local liquor store employee, I picked this up on his recommendation as being an excellent mixing rum. Being a fan of overproofs but having only ever tried Barcardi's 151, I took his advice and grabbed a bottle.
Boy, he wasn't kidding. Brings sweet, dark goodness to any mixer....coke, ginger ale, and my favorite, tonic water. And at $20 for 750ml in my area it's such a bargain that it's become my daily drinker.
Considering the high alcohol content, I thought this would be a hangover in a bottle, but unlike Plantation OFTD which always seems to give me the worst hangover, this had no such effect the day after.
Exceptional value. Highly recommended for cheap drunks on a budget.
