I feel better about the change since seeing the video. I also spoke with a long time employee at Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Cost Mesa today. He stated that the recipe and source is the same, but some of the differences could have occured over a period of time. He made the comment that much of the LH151 original has been sitting around for quite awhile. Its only been recently with the possibility of it going away that the product really moved. Anyway his thought was that time in the bottle certainly could have added to the difference between the new and old label. I am certainly not an expert with how rum flavor changes in the bottle, but it seemed to make some sense. Regardless, I put my order in today for 3 bottles from Binnys in Chicago.

I do believe I heard the word "indistinquishable".

So if these two rum gurus think the new product works, that's good enough for me.

I have seven bottles of old stock. I'll push them way to the back and get the new stuff for my Zombies.

Cheers!

My bottles of the new label arrived today. So I had my own taste test. I seem to agree with everything I've heard so far. The new label is slighty sweeter and the original seems to have just a bit more smoke. My opinion is that new label Lemon Hart 151 is excellent and it will help Donn's drink live on. Anyway, after your first Zombie or Jet Pilot, you won't give a shit about the very subtle differences.

I'll bet adding a drop or two of 'Liquid Smoke' to a bottle of the new stuff would fix it. Tonga, you try it, re-test, and report back. C'mon,... I dare you!

Holy crap!
At the liquor store where I work we got in a case yesterday... OF THE OLD STUFF!!!
If anyone's in/near the Denver area, come on by and get a bottle before they all wind up in my house.
Davidson's in Highlands Ranch.
See you there.

Thanks! They don't ship liquor, but luckily I have a friend in the Denver area. I've bought my 2 bottles (not trying to be greedy) and having them shipped. This will bring my old label stash up to 5 1/2 bottles. Long live Jet Pilots!

My 2 bottles showed up today - shipped by a friend in the Denver area.

Thanks for the hot tip CucamongaChango!

Got lucky and scored another bottle of the old stuff. I called the shop I had last bought it from, and they told me they were all out. 5 minutes later they called back because they found a bottle in the back! Still no sign of the new label here in FL.
