Definitely a step up from Bacardi 151. Cruzan’s overproof rum is still going to burn on the way down, but it doesn’t have quite the paint thinner-esque character that you may have come to expect from other spirits of this proof. Unless you dilute it a bit, this isn’t going to be a sipping rum, but it’s a good choice for cocktails that call for a 151.
