I'm also totally bummed that the Lemon Hart 80 and 151 demerara rums appear to be--at least temporarily--off the market. Here's hoping that these essential tiki mixers are back soon!

I've still never had the 80. A store in town carries only the 151, I'll have to go stock up. I tried a bottle of El Dorado once for an 80 pf. demerara, and wasn't terribly impressed. The Lemon Hart 151, with a little lime juice and a little syrup, shaken with ice and strained, is delicious (Kapu-Kai in Beachbum Berry's "Grog Log")

Is the flavor profile of the LH 80 similar to the 151?

Very similar--essentially the same rum at a different proof. And I agree with your assessment of El Dorado (I've had the 12 year and the 15 year): not bad, but LH is unquestionably superior.

Good luck with your quest to track down LH 151. I'm carefully rationing mine. If you come across a couple extra bottles, you know where to send them. :wave2:

By the way, if/when Lemon Hart becomes available again, DUNY now carries it.

Greytail!! I found it!!

Ron Zacapa Centenario for my egg nog. I prefer Venado aguardiente for Cuba Libres, it comes from the same folks.

Once a friend let me try some Dominican rum that made the Centenario looked bad. we felt horribly un-patriotic while enjoying the heck out of it.
