Anyone still hunting down Lemon Hart? The 151 is still readily available around here, and I picked up a few bottles of the 151 at one of my favorite friendly neighborhood liquor stores yesterday. Then my Rum Mule brought me some Lemon Hart 80 tonight! Who's thirsty for Shrunken Skulls?

I was planning a trip to Hi-Times soon, I will see how much Lemon Hart is left if any?
and report back.

Cheers!

I went to Hitimes today and was happy to see they still have the lemon hart 151 in stock. I got two bottles and there were 3 left on the shelf.

I'll do a taste test with it and the old bottles I still have around, to see how it pans out.

Well I did forget to report back, I can confirm Hi-Times indeed still has Lemonhart 151
in stock and I was told they still have a few boxes left, also this is the old stock (Original)recipe

I have also been told the new Lemonhart 80 (New Recipe) is on its way.

Hi-Times is now out of the "Old stock 151"
The new 151 is due next week & according to the Rum expert at Hi-Times
they will not be stocking the 80 proof, just the new 151 Lemonhart.

arriano, The same company that imports Lemonhart also handles "El Dorado" rum
and does not want to compete with itself on the 80 proof brands.

This only applies to Hi-Times as was told to me, The Lemonhart 80 will be available in other places
but not sure if will be for sale in Calif.

Anyone else have more info?

Keep in mind, guys, that the new 80-proof will be bottled in Canada and mixed with a very small percentage of Canadian rum (for tax purposes, I think). If anyone still has an old bottle from before all this, I'd be interested to know if they notice a difference.

Had a taste last night at the Tonga Hut. It seemed to have a more carmel taste than the old smokey flavor.

Save those surplus OG 151 bottles if you have them, they're like GOLD now !!

We compared the the two 151's in a side by side drink test and the new is certainly different, you only need to smell the rums and you will know what I mean, the new stuff has a dirty Barbados rum smell which when melting with the ice and tasted translates into the caramel-ish flavor. The old 151 is much smoother and if I could find a few more bottles I wouldn't hesitate to buy some, having said that the new version is not bad (for the drinks) it's just not the same.

So it's not the same, But is it any good at all?
I guess I will have to pick a bottle and do some taste testing also.

I have 3 bottles of the the OG stuff left !!...

I'm saving 1 for the great Atomic Tiki Party of Summer 2011.

Another I'm just going to pour out on the ground for the Tiki homies who aren't with us any more.

The 3rd I'm going to sell on eBay for big bucks. BTW, what's the shelf life on rum ???
