I'm worried because the state warehouse currently has it listed as out of stock, so the only bottles left may be the ones currently on store shelves. They say it's on order, but I can't be sure that order will ever get filled.

Bet the house, whatever fulfills the order, someday, won't be the same rum.

If the State warehouse lists it as "On Order" it probably means it is gone for good, since they wont be able to attain anymore from Cruzan's importer.

That's what I figured. I had a lot more of my bottle last night and, while it is a pretty good rum especially for the price, I don't think I see it as amazing enough to go out and buy up all the remaining stocks in town. I may grab a bottle or two more just because it's discontinued, but I didn't fall in love with it enough that I'd grab whatever I can while I still can.

*Edit: After thinking about it, the way in which I drank the rum last night did not really give it much of a chance to impress. I'll go back to my more favorable initial impression in my mind for this one.

The "new look" Cruzan bottle for the Aged 151 has landed at HiTime in Costa, Mesa. It's very nice. The ones that I saw were 1L.

Yeah it's a weird pale pink now. What's odd is that this may get dropped for whatever new label as in the original post.

No, Carbon, that's one of many old-style labels for the 120 Proof Clipper Rum. Please see the pictures posted at the start of the thread by The Rumelier. Those which he shows is the new look, very upscale labels with the sexy shaped bottles.

I had never seen this pale pink one until recently (next to bottles with the old red label). Are you saying the new new label (that TheRumelier posted) is already on store shelves? Wow.

Yup. But, just the 151. HiTime still has plenty of the old style bottle 14 month light and 2 year dark. I bought a bottle of the 151 and it tastes exactly the same as the older bottling. BTW, I have 5 different bottle/label styles of the Cruzan Clipper dating from the tax stamp days. The older, island-only distribution rum is, in fact, a spiced rum. At one time, it was imported, here. I got that pink-y label around a year ago at Bevmo.

In an earlier year in my career, after buying more than a hundred cases of Cruzan Estate Dark rum I went to my favorite St Thomas discount liquor store and didn't see this rum on the shelf. After about ten minutes of scouring the shelves I found it. The bottle, label and closure had changed and I had discounted the new look as a wine bottle that was misplaced near some other rums.

Since that day I've never relied on what I knew to be the Cruzan bottle again.
