“Very interesting to taste neat, despite a high ABV%. An airing of the rum would be recommended, and it is great in cocktails. Nose of molasses and I got notes of vanilla, licorice and caramel (after airing for about 20 minutes)”

“151's always come with caveats. They are meant to be pinch hitters, usually in cocktails. This one is really not bad as far as these things go. The undisputed king is Lemon Hart 151, no other rum even comes close at that strength. For me personally I quite liked the 151 Pusser's expression as well, it is my second favorite. This Gosling's 151 comes in a close third. It is a good expression but there are better ones out there. If you've had a particularly bad day I recommend putting this in your dark n' stormy but if you have accesss to Lemon Hart 151, use that instead.”
