151 rum

I have made rum cakes using dark rum 80 proof and it was yummy! I want to make it stronger using 151 proof but I am not sure if it will still taste good. Has anyone tried it?? I need help!!

If you use 151, I would recommend Gosling's over Bacardi. (Actually, I would recommend ANY rum over Bacardi, but that is just a personal preference) You can always dilute it a bit if it seems too strong.

Stronger?

151 is stronger in alcohol but not in taste.

I dont find it that tasty, actually.

Maybe mix Meyers dark rum with some 151 if you want both rum and alcohol taste.

Me either. In the post about the eggnog, DH figured more was better and added 151 to the eggnog. It cooked the eggs. Whites and yokes were seen.

Imagine what that would do to your stomach lining plus it would make the cake taste.

Haven't tried all that many; but given the choice of Myers, Pussers, J Wray & Nephew or Mount Gay, I prefer the flavor of J Wray followed by Mount Gay ( not at the same time ).

I always thought it used brandy. Wouldn't a nice warmed Gran Marinier taste and smell better?

Use the 151 for the purpose it was intended - to get drunk quick. Don't ruin a good cake with it.

Rum cakes? Grand Marnier is awfully sweet.

My point being flavor of the cake. I sure wouldn't use 151.
