I don't understand the complaints. It's VERY smooth rum for 151! Very sippable IMO.

Okay, I decided to give it a try. I took very tiny sips and held it in my mouth to let the burning subside before I swallowed. It was...interesting. The flavor was like burning woodchips that'd been extinguished in rubbing alcohol. I tried a sip of Wray and Nephew Overproof for comparison, and it tasted like just the rubbing alcohol.

I then made a Mai Tai and floated a half-ounce of LH 151 on top. Hands down the winner.

I'm with kahuna kevin. I have, I like it and I'll do it again. Not it's best use, though.

Goslings 151 tastes fine too. Although be careful not to make a 151 Dark and Stormy by mistake. Wondered why my head hurt the next day.

In order to get through the Smuggler's Cove rum list, one must sip a full 2 ounces of LH151. So anyone wanting his/her name on the wall needs to (wo)man up and do it. Frankly, it's not that bad. As far as overproof rums go, it's the smoothest and most flavorful I've tasted. Yes, it's more tolerable mixed, but if you're looking for a quick buzz, there are worse ways to get one.

Next time pour some LH151 on the rocks and let it sit for a few minutes. It's surprisingly palatable and delicious that way.

I've tried Bacardi 151 a couple times. It's like siphoning gasoline, but not as pleasant.

As my friend Sparky learned me: If you're at a bar and you're lookin to get a buzz on a shot of 151 can be the best bang for your buck. If it's sipped it's fine. (I wouldn't recommend even sipping it to the amateur drinker.)

I didn't sip my last shot of 151 because I was using it as an improvised antiseptic mouth wash.
Attribution is the sincerest form of flattery.

I've tasted Bacardi 151. It had rum flavor in there, though was mostly fire. A friend has insisted that I'm wrong, that it has NO flavor, but I can taste it.

Might be blasphemy here, but... Stroh 80. Stroh is Austrian rum. It's sort of its own style of rum, with added flavorings, and it smells like a Butter Rum Life Saver. It has flavor with the fire. There are four varying strengths, denoted by number, and Stroh 80 is the highest at 160 proof. I was making a variant on a Spanish Coffee at a fantasy con room party this last week-end, and Spanish Coffee requires a sugar-rimmed glass, ignited with 151 to caramelize the sugar; I asked a bartender I know what to use besides basic 151 and he suggested Stroh, and then poured me a sample. It was killer potent, yet tasty. I bought Stroh instead because I thought it'd add more flavor to the drink, and it did - after burning for 15-20 seconds, some of the bite came off.
