#Top100Rums of 2017 #61 Lemon Hart Demerara 151 Rum

Posted by Arctic Wolf on October 22, 2017

Lemon Hart is an iconic rum brand with roots which stretch back to the late 18th century when Mr. Lemon Hart began to supply rum to the British Royal Navy. By 1804, production of his “Lemon Hart Rum” was moved from his small merchant office in Cornwall, England to a larger facility in London. Over 150 years later the rum was no linger being produced in England, rather the blend was being produced at the Hiram Walker Distillery in Ontario, Canada. True to its roots as a Navy Rum, the brand remained a Demerara blend with the base rum bulk shipped from Guyana to the Hiram Walker Distillery where it was aged and blended with 1.5 % Canadian Rum for tax purposes.

The current brand owner, Mosaiq has changed things a little. The rum is now blended with 100 % Guyanese rum, and all of the rum is aged in Guyana rather than in Canada. (It is bottled in Canada by the Newfoundland and Labrador Liquor Corporation (NLC) for Mosaiq.) I was told by Mosaiq that all of Guyanese marques for this the rum have remained the same as before. Thus the difference between the old blend and the new blend comes down to the scrapping of the Canadian rum content (1.5 % of the volume) as well as the differences which aging in Guyana rather than in Ontario, Canada will impart to the final rum.

Here is a link to the my #61 Rum of 2017:

Review: Lemon Hart Demerara 151 Rum

“… I can smell molasses and rummy burnt caramel which seems to come in waves at me. Dark dried fruits like prunes and raisins rise up as well in a bouquet that despite the astringency is very complex and enticing …”
