Lemon Hart & Son Original 1804 40%

The "Original 1804" by Lemon Hart & Son, distilled in Guyana from molasses, offers an oily aroma and flavor profile, enriched with notes of molasses. While it lacks the burnt tones of Skipper Demerara and the smoothness of El Dorado, it stands out as a solid cocktail rum with a relatively neutral Demerara taste. This rum is praised for its machine-room-like qualities reminiscent of diesel and heavy oil, making it a unique mixer. Though it may not have the depth or complexity for sipping neat, its balanced character allows it to perform well in cocktails. Ideal for those looking to explore a distinctive Demerara rum for mixed drinks.

“This one has neither the abrasive burnt tones of Skipper demerara nor the smoothness and roundness of the El Dorado expressions. It’s a good cocktail rum for a relatively neutral demerara taste (but do you really want that?) but kind of hard to recommend given the options.”

“Bought is as a mixer when I was trying to find a 151 Demerara (but that’s close to impossible over here) Neat it’s very straight forward, but has no depth or complexity in the flavor. Useable mixer, but not convincing.”

“Has of course something of Demerara... strong memories of the engine room in the ship - diesel and heavy oil... who likes it... theoretically good replacement to the Pusser's in Painkiller... but does not fit at all ...”
