Found a store, today (not a chain), with 11 bottles of original LH80 on the shelves. Asked, and it was all they had in stock - not expecting more. Said they'd give me the case discount, if I bought 'em all. I already have 2 cases of LH80, stashed, so I told them I'd think about it. They also had some new LH151, so I bought a bottle, my first of the "new" stuff. Original LH151 hasn't been available in the Dallas area for a looong time.

I've been able to get both at a local store. They have to special order it, though. And their orders often mysteriously go from a case to one or two bottles. Online is still your best and most reliable bet here, unfortunately.

If yer substituting El Dorado for Lemon Hart 80.
I would suggest the 15 year.
LH80 is pretty dark thick stuff,
and the ElDarodo 12 does not compare to the consistency of LH 80
even the 25 is not quite the same, but at 85 to 90 bucks a bottle, that's a bit crazy to spend on mixing rums, 15 is around 30 bucks I believe.
If you can't find LH 80, do yerself a favor and splurge for the ElD 15.
you'll thank me later.

I've never seen LH 80 anywhere, but I've used the LH 151 slightly diluted in its stead, and also used plenty of El Dorado 5 and even El Dorado 12 in the drinks calling for 80 proof demerara rum.

tried the ED 15 for the first time last night in a navy grog, and found the rum to be overwhelmed by the other components. the 15 reminds me much of Appleton Estate 12 y.o. Looks like the younger, brassier El Dorado works better for mixing than the 15, imo...

I want to thank hiltiki (Hilda) for trading with me, the LH80 is pretty darn good rum in my opinion.

Thanks again Hilda and enjoy your Zombies!

Cheers,
Chris

Lemon Hart recently tweeted that it's bring out "Lemon Hart Original" which I assume is the 80 proof. Don't know when or where it will be available:

hey thanks for that tip! I've seen that label at some European liquor store websites. Sure hope it comes to the United States.
