Good blog post on the subject.
I use Coruba for no other reason than it gets good reviews, is cheap and makes good drinks.
I have a question for the group. Where I get it, the 750 has the plastic label as shown in the blog posts but the 1.75 is still the old paper label. Have they changed the 1.75 label or is the paper label still standard everywhere.

Sorry. . . typo . . . meant "Lemon Hart 151". Star Liquors has it in several of their locations south of where I am. I'm trying to get them to send some up here to their Stuart store.
As a matter of fact, in my location the selection of Jamaican rums is limited to Myers, Appleton and Margaritaville - the latter being discontinued as we speak.
I'm not a big fan of spiced rums, but we've got a pretty extensive selection here including Kracken and all the other favorites. No rum from Martinique at all except at Total Wine in Jensen Beach which has Clement VSOP and two kinds of St. James. No Coruba. I make a list of what I can't get here and then plan a "Road Trip" up to Total Wine.
I bet you feel more like you do now now than you did when you came in.
