I've searched for LH 80 for years with no success, I have an extra bottle of 151 I'd gladly trade. There are some recipes calling for the 80 that I've always wanted to try as well. I do love me some Zombies with 151!

In the meantime, you COULD try those LH80-based recipes with El Dorado 12 (which, in the interests of full disclosure, I prefer to LH80).

Just a thought!

The Rum expert at High Times actually recommended El Dorado in place of the Lemon Hart 80
said it was from the same Distiller, I believe also.

The last place I saw that was still stocking the Lemon Hart 80 was a few government stores in Oregon and the Kona Wine Club in Hawaii. Both I believed sold out of their remaining stocks late last year.

Although some say Lemon Hart 80 was unique (Mike Buhen being one) I have never had a bad drink substituting El Dorado 12 in a recipe that calls for LH 80.

Okay, so now I need to get some ED5 and restock my ED12 as it's nearly empty!

Thank you all for the suggestions, I do appreciate it.

Cheers!

Don't bother with the Eldo 5 year. Teh 12 year is much better and way cheap, at least here. It's abotu $20 a bottle for the 12 year.

I've got a bottle of ED8 due in tomorrow, I may give that a trial run as a LH80 substitute.

Cheers!

I've seen (here in Miami) ED5, ED12, ED15 and the pretty rare ED25 (25?)...but not ED8. I know that in the case of other rums, the pricier ones are not always the ideal for cocktails. (Beachbum recommends Barbancourt 5 over Barbancourt 8, for example.)

So I'm curious if ED8 is a more ACCURATE replacement (not better, mind you) for LH80.

Discuss.
