Looks like hoarding of Lemon Hart went to extreme measures in this 1960's ad poster.

This just appeared on the Lemon Hart page on Facebook. Something is conspicuously absent.

Note though that they went back to the original label colors.

I'd love to get my hands on some of that classic 80-proof. Impossible to find in the States.

Apparently there's no crisis in the UK. Both the 151 and 80 proof are available here:

I heard the 80 is available duty free in Canada, I believe in Vancouver. I plan to check the airport when I'm there in May, or perhaps someone else can chime in before then.

SO....I know there is no real replacement for LH151 (I have 6 bottles of old labels stashed away for posterity), but if one was less concerned about the 151 undertow, can it be argued that the flavor profile could be approximated with El Dorado 12 Year Old?

Yes. At least for me. I prefer a good Demerara over a mediocre 151 sub any day.

And if I want more booze? I'll mix another
