OK, now the Lemon Hart web site is showing three rums: Original, 151, and (sigh...) Spiced

Oh, and you can now buy Lemon Hart merchandise

Looked at the merchandise. I think I'll get me one of those Lemon Hart Zippo lighters,... for $50. Hmmm, on second thought, I think I'll just save the $50 for the rum, instead.

Last Fri I was surprised to see 4-5 bottles of the old LH 151 on the shelf at the local Mollie Stone's grocery store (on El Camino in San Mateo, CA).

Sorry, there are probably many many places that still have some deadstock - dunno if this is really the place to post all those sightings. Just thought I'd post in case any SF bay area peninsula zombies or jet pilots want to know. I couldn't help getting one more to add to our basement stock, but left a bunch on the shelf.

Funny thing about that Mollie Stone - they don't have a big liquor section, but they have some oddities from time to time. For a long time they had a bottle of the "old" Pyrat Cask 23 (before it became owned by Patron and changed to "1623") sitting way up high on the shelf. By the time I noticed it there, I was aware of the legend that the 23 was much better, and hard to find. But I never could get the guts to pull the trigger at that price tag though, and then somewhere along the line it disappeared.

According to US LH importer Ed Hamilton, we won't be seeing anything but LH151 here in the states for the foreseeable future.

You think there'd be some kind of merch with a repro of the label. Wouldn't you want your Lemon Hart t-shirt, etc, to say "Rum" and/or "151" somewhere on it? Lame-o!!!

Ooh... I've just emailed a family member who lives nearby to go search for old-label 151. I've only seen the new bottles here in L.A. I'm kind of excited to hear if it's still there. Thanks for the tip!

I just noticed that we can now get LH151 here! New label, of course. To find a bottle near you (hopefully) go to:
http://www.liquorconnect.com/Products/Pages/3210-00748839.aspx
This only applies to Alberta. BC and ON residents you are still SOL...

The new Lemon Hart 151..
1. Is better than the "old"
2. Has a more appealing label
3. Has a more appealing bottle
4. Is more readily available
5. Is creating joy throughout the lands

I agree with #4 only. And so is Captain Morgan.

Agreed... I'm happy they are producing the new version, but the old label is still superior in my opinion. I hope my 12 bottles last a long time.

no sign of Lemon Hart here in the DC area, not the 80 or the 151.

I hadn't been paying attention and didn't realize it had been re-released. Stumbled across it at Surdyk's in Minneapolis, snapped it up all excited-like, much to the amusement of my date.

Later that night, I cracked it open to give it a taste like I do with all new liquors. Somehow forgot that it's a 151 and nearly choked! But with a splash of soda water, it opened right up... beautiful, beautiful rum! I think I need to create something that uses both this and Wray & Nephew, just for the punch-in-the-face value.

Correction to my earlier post from a few days back-- I found a few bottles of old label Lemon Hart 151 at Ace Beverages in DC last night. I only bought one, so for anyone in the DC area, there's still a few left. I think they were either $28 or $30 each.

If I were you I'd snap those babies up! I only have a few bottles stashed away and fear I'll never be able to easily buy it here in aust.
