    idk...discuss.

    shots of 151 are bad.

    It's certainly efficient. Just keep it away from open flame.

    I've got a nice book about the history of rum...151 is probably as close to the ol' stuff that sailors and pirates drank. The original stuff was probably more like 160 proof, and also very dark.

    I'm not usually into it to get trashed. My choice for rum is Gosling's Bermuda rum...by far the best I've had.

  6. I avoid garbage booze, so I have no idea what 151 is. If it is 151 proof, I hope your roommate is still alive this morning.

    That stuff is rocket fuel! I dont know how people drink it.
     
  8. I've had one experience with 151, and it was a bad one. Put off me off to liquor almost completely, actually.

    Nasty stuff.
     
  9. 151 is a blast, and one of my friends knows how to breathe fire. His fuel is 151- it burns HOT.

    I get images of crusty old men getting wasted when I think of 151. I stay away from it.

    That's funny. When I think of crusty old men, I think of Old Millwaukee. When I think of 151, I equate it to experimental teenagers.

    I'll take it one step further. When I think of experimental teenagers, I think of cheap beer like Old Milwaukee.

    Seriously. :)

    Wow, who knew crusty old men and teenagers had so much in common. Marketing departments, take heed.
     
  16. Milwaukee's Beast or maybe some good old fashioned Red White and Blue!!! Old Style? It's fully "kreusened" for your pleasure.

    I'll drink Old Style all night long. I've been pretty kreusened myself thanks to Old Style on many an occasion.

    Speaking of which, when are we going drinking?!
     
  18. Pffft, 151, amateurs. Give me some Spiritus Rectificatus any day of the week. I believe it is 192 proof, Everclear is a cheap knockoff of this stuff. I admit I would rather have a microbeer over hard liquor, but when I want it I go all out. That and there is a warning on it so we only ever drink that stuff mixed with non alcoholic beverages. We manage to mix shots that have more alcoholic content than some spirits straight, i.e. vodka, rum, whiskey, etc. My friends and I are rather weird folk, and we're only 19/20. I expect we will all have liver problems by the time we are 21, but we're young so its ok. Ah Canada, where everything is legal at 18(well at least in Alberta).

    I forget exactly whats in it, but my friend makes this thing called firewater. You take half a carton of cranberry juice and mix it with a bottle of 151 and then put it in the freezer to cool down. There may or may not be another ingredient or two, I dont remember. It however tastes a bit sweet with that 151 afterburn. Just remember to drink responsibly and if you are having it at a party, don't let anyone drive home drunk. Cuz we may be dumbasses for drinking so heavily, but at least we make sure we stay safe.

    151 is disgusting.

    When it is on fire, it emits a flame that is a little blue, but mostly invisible. It is clearly a witch!!! So I don't drink it.

    Terrible stuff, I take a swig to clear my throat/burn all living things in my throat.
