While we are on the topic of overproof rum and substitution have anyone tested this one in drinks (Tilambic 151)?

A friend of mine went to Hi Times in Costa Mesa yesterday and they're out of Lemon Hart. Stay thirsty, my friends.

Plantation Dark 151 is a great alternative. It's definitely not Lemon Hart, but it works.



I'll give it a look, thanks!

Holy poop, hopefully my order a few days ago went through okay. They're my only source for the stuff.

I was having this discussion with a few friends yesterday.

Plantation Dark overproof is a good rum but not a substitute for Lemon Hart 151.

This would be a great time for El Dorado to kick in and produce a dark Demerara 151 strength rum. They used to make a dark called "Cuba Libre". . . I liked it. Kick up that formula to 151 strength and they may be able to give Lemon Hart a run for their money. I'm growing weary of the 'Lemon Hart Chronicles"... it's time for a new contender.

Okay, I went to two different liquor stores and bought what I could find.

Agreed, it would be a brilliant marketing scam if that was LH's intention as they're sort of a monopoly in that essence. So they're stopping 151 and not the usual LH?

Apparently I tipped off The Mai-Kai in time for them to buy out the entire stock from their distributor. So no worries for The Hukilau and a while afterwards. But they're looking at possible replacements.

I also heard from the Bum, who says he's got plenty of LH 151 coming from his local distributor for his bar's opening. I'm wondering if there's enough product stashed in the warehouses of various distributors to carry us through the shortage. I was still able to get a store to order the "old" Lemon Hart from their distributor years after production ended.

I'll definitely try to gather more info at The Hukilau.

I don't think there is a distributor to SC, but since I have never purchased the stuff I'm not certain.

I just want to jump on the bandwagon and buy some. HAHA

Lemon Hart 151 may become the Bitcoin of Tiki.

Let's hope not! Bitcoin is around $600 right now. Knowing the tiki community, Lemon Hart will be pushing $1,000 a bottle before you know it. And what's worse, people will pay it!

Hmmm. I see an investment opportunity.
