It's got a darker more molasses flavor than the other two. A nice bargain sipper. Gina got a bottle as a gift and I haven't been able to find more, so we are being stingy with it.

And of course the container is really cool!

Have you tasted it yet?

Not yet, I may crack it tonight.

Ok, tried a bit of the Old Monk Supreme XXX.

I love the smell of it especially.

Taste is good..... a little bit of a burnt aftertaste kinda? But not unpleasant.

This is very nice rum! The peanut nose is right on, now that you mention it. I wish I could find some around DC; I'd like to try the 10 (and get the cool bottle, too).

Some of the best rum I have ever had... I had it at a little bar called Piek in Rotterdam, NL. The rum is from Surinam and tastes of vanilla and wood. The flavor sounds simple, but it's very sophisticated to my palate. Anyone know where I can get some in the States? I am seriously, craving this now.

Hi Mahalo Jones,

They are currently seeking distribution in the U.S. I met them last year and tried most of their line out at the Caribbean Beer and Rum festival. I will let you know if/when they announce anything.

Ed posted on the Lemon Hart 151 FB page tonight that there will be no more LH151 bottled until mid-2015!
Plan accordingly, and get out there and snag the remaining bottles up!

Cheers. That was some delicious rum. It's a crime that we don't have access to it. If I was rich, I'd start importing it.

What a wonderful resource! And really making me thirsty. I prefer darker un-spiced rums. A particularly yummy one I stumbled upon recently is Pyrat brand rum. I enjoyed some sips of it. Then I stumbled away.

I am also a big fan of the dark and stormy made with Goslings.

What dark rums do you all recommend? Oh, and going to the Bahamas in a couple of weeks. Any suggestions for specific libations in that little corner of the world (sadly we'll only be visiting Grand Bahama, but I'll take what I can get)...

The Bahamas are not really known for rum, but you can find bottles from other places. For example, if you see this one anywhere for less than $50, I suggest picking one up...

...and if you want to spend a mortgage payment on a fantastic meal, check out the Graycliff Restaurant. If you do, be sure to have them give you a tour of their wine cellar.

The El Dorado line of rums is a fabulous place to explore "darker" rums.

John Watling's rum is produced in Nassau. I am told it makes a great souvenir if you can find it. :)

kiki an'e and I were visiting one of our favorite bottle shops and discovered they had Screech. I have not seen it in any other store in Georgia and snapped a bottle up. I remembered enjoying the uniqueness of it when I had a sample last year. Curious how it will hold up in the rum lab.

New label or old label on the Screech?
