Myer’s Original Dark Rum is a blend of up to nine different rums of various ages, all of which are distilled using Jamaica's typical production method: pot-stills. The Original Dark Rum is slightly unique in Jamaica however, because some of the molasses used earlier in the process is added back in after distillation.
Myers rum has been produced since 1879 and named after its founder, Fred Myers.

El Dorado 8 is my other all-time favorite. This is a bit more sweet. So, not quite as good to mix with Coca-Cola unless twist of lime. Perfect for pineapple juice. Love it!
I bought my first bottle of Myers's on a whim in June, the day after I had poured the last drop from my bottle of Gosling's Black Seal, and in my humble opinion, the buck stops here. It melds beautifully with every mixer that I have thrown at it - orange juice, lemon juice, mango nectar, pineapple juice, lemonade, coconut milk, Dr. Pepper, Coca-Cola, and even Arizona Sweet Tea - but at the end of the day, I generally drink it neat. I actually enjoy the fact that it isn't quite as smooth on the palate as Gosling's because it compels me to pace myself, sipping it slowly and taking the time to savor it, and enjoy every nuance of the vanilla and molasses notes.
Really good dark rum. It’s smooth and rich in flavor. I enjoy Coke or Pepsi with 2oz shot. Also very good in other mixed drinks. I’m shocked the rating is 5.8. Should be around a 7.8. Anyway very good rum always mellows me out.
I was introduced to Myers by my sea-loving rum-loving brother back in the 70's. It has been my go-to rum ever since. My preference is the way it was first served to me - Myers and Tonic with lime. I'm a bit older now and have modified it with diet tonic but still love it. My brother moved on to the high-end Anniversario Rum but I have stayed vigilant.
"Initially it is all caramel and burnt toffee almost like black treacle. As the aroma develops that rich Jamaican aroma also makes an entrance amongst the dense treacle."
