A new 151 rum from Lost Spirits. Not quite what we're looking for as a Lemon Hart stand-in, but it sounds great. Perhaps a Demerara should be their next project.

long, long time lurker. first time poster.

behold. in a small hole-in-the-wall liquor store in red bluff, CA...yesterday night, i stumbled across five "original label" bottles of lemon hart 151 rum. i'm no urban archeologist, but based on the thick amount of dust on them and the style of price sticker, they had likely been sitting on the shelf since the late 80s or early 90s. the owner was trying to get rid of them. price: $19 each. sometimes fortune smiles...

A very nice find! Looks like you got everything they had left? Awesome! Some wonderful drinks are the reward for having a sharp eye. I often wonder how many bottles of LH151 are still available around the country, just waiting to be discovered on the shelves of quiet little liquor stores.

I've come across a stash of LH151 and am debating buying it. I can't possibly use a case of it myself, though, on top of what I've already got. Would anyone potentially be interested in buying some? I wouldn't be trying to make a big profit or anything. So probably something like $40/bottle plus shipping. (I'm not exactly sure how much it's going to cost me yet.)

Lemme know if you might want some. You can PM me or email:
davidjmontgomery@yahoo.com

Cheers,
DJM

Yeah, that's quite a dilemma. It's a "must-have" rum, but you don't want to overbuy because it may come back on the market in another year or so. But then if it *doesn't* come back, then you should horde it. Yowza...

I ended up ordering 5 bottles. Seeing as how I already have a handful, that should see me through the lean times.

Looks like there are still plenty of stores carrying LH151:
