One of the ‘must have’ rums to keep on hand. Very similar to Hamilton which is also excellent. Side by side though the Lemon Heart has a bit more depth in it’s complexity.
Enjoyed out of a Glencairn.
One of the more pleasant overproofs. Oaky with demerara and vanilla notes. Not overly sweet. Obviously a powerful drink, but even sipped straight it seems less assertively alcohol-forward than its ABV would belie.
Hefty banana and caramel on the nose. Not too much burn as some other ratings imply. First taste brings sweet notes of apricot and a very toasty oak to the forefront. Very flavourful for a 151. Finishes out with a superb, lingering burn. Tingling all along the tongue. Hardly needs any mix given the flavours compounding throughout. Love it!
This is an overproof rum, so lets not mess about it smells like it will kill you !
On the nose burnt chocolate and dark iak wood .
Drink it and wow it tastes like a thick rum treacle which is truly awesome and has loads of funk flavours . A Demerara delight, the only downside is that it's very rarely available in the UK , I can imagine in a cocktail it's a knockout .
Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Lemon Hart 151 Rum bottle and label design looks dull. Super strong glue and a whole lot of alcohol to the nose and palate. Nasty burn at the end, so better skip this one altogether.
My local store finally got this in on my request. It does not disappoint! Aroma of molasses and spice with just a bit of alcohol. On the tongue it's molasses, cooking spice and smoky wood with a powerful but pleasant heat. A bit more of the smoky wood in the aftertaste than I'd like, but this is not a sipper and it's presence in tiki drinks more than makes up for that shortcoming.
