So, you are basically saying it's an octane increaser? RIght?
It's not only an octane increaser. At higher proofs you get additional flavours locked into the alcohol. Try the JW&N Overproof or the quality El Dorado offerings and you'll see what we mean

My wife and I have to concur with your view that the El Dorado and JW&N overproofs, although having contrasting styles, are both quite flavorful. We keep looking for cocktail uses for the El Dorado High Strength in particular, as it has a taste particularly pleasing to our palates.

We've done a lot of training work in the UK with Wray and Nephew educating bartenders that it isn't just an overproof rum....it's an over-flavoured rum. Too many bars only keep overproofs for setting fire to things or finishing off obnoxious drunks at the bar. Just use less of overproof rum in a drink and it's the same abv but carries unique flavours.

Alternatively some times of the year it's fun to use the same amount and end up like aforementioned Bob the Accountant

I have been looking for the El Dorado 151 here in NYC, but no luck yet.

I had been using Lemon Hart 151 in my Zombies but I have since run out and you definitely cannot get LH in NY. I usually pick up some LH when I visit family in MA. Just gotta get my hands on another demerara 151.

A great bar down the street from me (Elettaria) uses the El Dorado 151 in their Zombies and I did not notice a significant difference, so I look forward to finding it for myself.

I bought a bottle a few years ago at "Tottenham Wines" (in West Green Road, London N15), which used to be the only shop in London where you could get the full El Dorado range. I think that they only stock the premium El Dorado stuff now, but it's well worth a visit as they have some interesting odds and ends. It is, however, well off the beaten track, so wear a bullet-proof vest.
You are quite correct, Berbician, it is the same good old high wine. Actually the lable was a little misleading since lots of people out of Guyana took the name literally as wine.
