Stocked up today. Still some bittles on the shelf at the one and only place near me that stocks it.

As for ED producing a 151, there is a light 151 that just became available here. As far as I know the distillate that becomes LH151 is coming off the very same wooden Coffey still that all of the El Dorado products are made with. I think regardless of the name brand all pot still Demerara rum is distilled at Demerara Distillers.

Not to pick on littlegiles but to reference their post:

No doubt LH151 is a distinctive rum & people can spend their money how they want BUT without LH151 'on the team' you'll still be able to whip up a good drink right? It's not the be all & end all.

I've enjoyed obtaining LH151 when I had not been able previously & found a few of drinks I really liked that 'needed' LH141 but have probably made 20 or so. Quite a few just weren't to my taste, (that's normal for when you try a bunch of tiki drinks, regardless of the spirits involved)

I tried out Gosling 151 as an alternative in the drinks that I really liked ~ the drinks lacked something but they were still good, arguably my I should have tried it in the drinks I didn't like with LH151 to see if it improved them.

A potential 'out of stock' means I should just hurry up & order another bottle, not all they've got... Just my 2 cents

Or, you can go into full-bore hoarder panic mode, and buy every bottle you find! Last 10 bottles, at that store. (I still have 2 cases of original Lemon Hart 80, from my last LH panic.)

This morning at my local ABC store here in Florida, I was surprised to find four different 151's side-by-side in the rum section. Brands and prices are:

Bacardi 151 $24.99 / 750ml
Tropic Isle Palms 151 $19.99 / 750ml (normally $23, I think)
Cruzan 151 $16.99 / 750ml
El Dorado Demerara 151 $15.99 / 750ml

Interesting to see that of the four, only the ElDo is silver. Also, the least appealing of the three to me, the Bacardi, is the most expensive.

Here's a pic:



=========================
What two of today's ideas are more inseparable than rum and tiki?

I just got mine from Vendome Liquor on Ventura Blvd in the Studio City, all gone now . You might want to check the store in Toluca Lake.

Thank you for the suggestion hiltiki, I just picked up a bottle at the Toluca Lake location. They still have four bottles left as of this morning.

I'm still wondering why is this happening?
Anyone know the reasoning behind this?
Huh? Huh?

As of 10 am this morning there were about 6 bottles left at Beverage Warehouse in Culver City. I picked up two and left the rest for the West Side Ohana.

BarKeeper in LA is selling LH 151 for $38.50. Ugh.

That's the regular rate at Morts too. Keg and Bottle in Hollywood has some still (or did) but those are $35 I think too.
