rum will last in perfect condition up until this world ends on December 21, 2012.

after that, it gets reincarnated in a different chilicosm as either fine single malt scotch or as Olde English malt liquor, depending on its karma. you can decide for yourself what kind of karma leads to what kind of reincarnation...

If anyone in the Boston area is still looking for a source for the new stuff, I just got a bottle from Select Liquors in Allston. They don't carry it as part of their regular stock, but you can order through their website and pick it up at the store.

Good to know thanks. I'll have to pick up a bottle to compare to my stash of the old.

If you figure out a way to tweak the new LH151 to get closer to the flavor of the original, I'd be very interested to know how it's done - the new stuff makes a fine drink, but I'd love to know how these drinks tasted originally.

I haven't tasted the new stuff myself yet. I was really hoping it would just be a label change. I guess I'll use the 3 1/2 bottles of the original for myself or only those who will actually appreciate it. I had a group over recently and I barely prevented someone from mixing some with Coke! All bottles are now hidden at a non-disclosed location.

Bringing the subject up again. It appears to unanimous that the new label does not have the same taste as the original. In an email from the Bum yesterday, he said it was sweeter, with less smoke and char. But, he did say it is still the best choice to make Donn's drinks. I have not had the opportunity to try it yet, but I hope to soon. Anyway, I wonder if adding a little Lemon Hart 80 proof or another Demerara rum might bring some of the flavor back. Has anyone tried it? I know it will lower the alcohol punch a little, but maybe bring back some of the flavor.

how many prominent drinks actually call for LH 151 anyhow?

I've got the Zombie, the 151 swizzle, the Jet Pilot, the Cobra's Fang, and the Puka Punch.

that's five.

are there more?

Based on comparing a new bottle to my ~2 year old NOS it's a little bit different but not much. The "not quite as smoky" is the biggest difference in flavor. I doubt you'll be able to tell them apart in a tiki drink where you're adding 6-8 other ingredients to the glass.

And since you cannot get the old stuff it's somewhat moot anyway. IMO you're much better off with the new LH151 than you would be cutting it with an 80 proof rum, it will lose the burn then.

Maybe they'll get it right before I run out of my secret stash of 7 bottles of the original.

I'd like to know how the flavor profile of original LH 80 compares to original LH 151, and to the new 151. Not talking about "the burn" of the alcohol, but the flavor notes. The LH80 does taste smokey, to me.
I've only been able to get 80, here. When a drink includes, say, 1 oz. LH151 and 1 oz. gold Puerto Rican or Cruzan, I use LH80 and Cruzan 151. My theory is that this will be closest to the proper flavor, while preserving total alcohol content (if that's even important).
I still have a case of the original 80, and would like to 'nurse it along', if it actually tastes closer to the original 151, than the new label stuff does.
Anyone know?

Please forgive if this is a dumb question...

I bought a bottle of LH 151 recently, with the old label. Does that mean it's the old stuff? Does all the new formula have the new label?

Thanks.

Ed Hamilton and Martin "Martiki" Cate do a side-by-side taste test of the new and old bottle Lemon Hart 151.
