The Wife & I arrived at our rental house on Marco Island, Florida on Saturday, We're here until Saturday, when we head to Ft Lauderdale when we'll be visiting the Mai Kai. I set up our bar....



There's a mature mango tree out back that's filled with the biggest, ripest mangos that I've seen in years. I made us a round of Mango Daiquiris for the pool:

-3oz (1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons) amber rum
-1 1/2 cups (1-inch) cubes of firm-ripe mango (from two 1-lb mangoes), frozen
-3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
-1 oz (2 tablespoons) triple sec
-2 teaspoons superfine granulated sugar
-2 cups ice cubes

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth.


While putting groceries away I opened a few of the kitchen cabinets and made a nice discovery:



It's the partially full bottle of Lemon Hart 151 Demerara that we left at the house when we were here in March 2009! This is great timing, because not only can I use the 151 in my cocktails during our vacation, but I'm able to critically taste the LH151 against other substitutes that I have been using since I ran out of it at home last year. The first thing that I've discovered is that the Gosling's 151 that I've been using has a completely different taste than the LH151 (it has kind of a root beer-like flavour), and isn't a good sub for LH151. Cruzan 151 might be a better sub.

As we make drinks this week I'll post some thoughts about the LH151.

Until then cheers & Mahalo!

I see you say that bottle has been there since March 2009. It doesn't look like it has much in it and is about 18 months old. It's a shame you dont have a new bottle of LH to compare it too to see how the oxidation might have affected the taste. I'm refering to the post by aquarj here.

Given the alcohol content, significant oxidation won't occur for sometime.

Correct!

About 7000 years by my calculation.

To be safe, I like using Vac-U-Vin stoppers.
