That's great. Now that the range is available you can make your choice. The good thing about rum is that it is the most versatile alcoholic beverage. You can have a rum to match almost any other alcoholic beverage but the same is not true inthe reverse. Better yet with ED you say what you drink and a match can be found for you.
As the saying goes - if music be the food of love, play on. Verily I say onto you if rum be the food of life, drink on.

FYI, Binny's in Chicago sells it. I didn't see it at Sams Wine & Spirits however, which is odd because because Sam's generally has a much better rum selection than Binnys. No competiton, in fact.

I am seeing El Dorado High Strength Rum around the internet more and more lately. I'm having a hard time locating Lemon Hart 151 Demerara lately and I've thought about trying the High strength as a substitute.

I have noticed that nowhere on the bottle does this rum say that it is a 'Demerara' rum. The High Strength is also clear - ala JW&N's Overproof- and appears to have little to no age to it. My questions are:

1. Is this product in fact a Demerara rum?

2. How does this rum taste in comparison with Lemon Hart 151?

3. How does this product work in cocktails that call for Demerara 151, such as the Zombie, Jet Pilot etc?

I would apprecite any insight into the El Dorado High Strength Rum that anyone might have.

Mahalo,

Craig

Craig,

I cannot answer every one of your questions (lack of expertise in certain areas) but I can answer these for you.

1) El Dorado is the private label of Demerara Distillers Limited, which has been making rum in Guyana since the 1600's and was the original supplier of rum to the British Royal Navy. It is distilled from Demerara sugar. It is, therefore, Demerara rum.

2) Lemon Hart 151 is a recently discontinued product. If you see any in the marketplace, buy it while you can. It was made for Allied Domecq (now Pernod Ricard) by DDL. As it stands, the only Lemon Hart available for sale in the U.S. is the 80-proof.

It might be worth playing around with other overproof rums to see which one(s) suite your cocktail needs. I can tell you that the following are available in the U.S. but this list is by no means exhaustive, it is just what I am currently aware of:

Gosling's 151 (Bermuda)
Cruzan 151 (St. Croix)
J. Wray & Nephew 126 (Jamaica)
El Dorado 151 (Guyana)
Sunset Very Strong Rum 169-pf (St. Vincent and the Grenadines)
Bacardi 151 (Puerto Rico)

Joe,

Thanks for your reply. I had heard rumours that LH151 was discontinued, but had not had that confirmed until now. I'm currently using Gosling's 151 but, while much better than Bacardi 151 it lacks the complex smokiness of Demerara Rum. I think that I'll try Cruzan's version until I can get my hands on the El Dorado.

i love both the Cruzan and the Gosling 151.Gosling is closer, but you already noticed that it is an imperfect sub, Cruzan-though delectable- would be an even less perfect sub.
