Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Not a fan. Drinkable with coke but that's all I can say about it.
This is my default rum and I drink rum on the rocks. Myer's dark is a little harsher than I'd like, as others point out, but at the easy-to-find / affordable level, I don't have one I like better (yet). I'll keep looking. After a minute or two on the rocks, it softens enough to sip just fine and help me hang loose. I like the flavor too and it's not too sweet, which is very important to me.
Nice but not for a couple in a row. Drank this one during trip in Aruba.
Not too funky, a nice bit of caramel and toffee flavors. Love this one in tiki drinks - not the mai tai though, I use Coruba for that one.This one works very well in a Dr. Funk, Planter's punch, Hurricane, navy grog, and maybe even a Queen's Park swizzle (although I use Gosling's for that one).
Quite a good deal for the price. Delivers a nice mix between spiciness and sweetness and has no alcoholic burn.
Dark brown colour and a burnt caramel with alcohol on the nose. Strong taste of alcohol and spice. Not great for sipping, but makes a good dark and stormy. In Canada ,it is labeled Myers Planters Punch.
As a sailor conducting oceanographic research in the Caribbean in the late 70s, we had ready access to Myers. Drinkable on the rock and mixed well with cola and ginger beer. Nothing great, but a consistently good drink. Color is dark and appealing an aroma is good with a hint of burnt molasses. Last time I drank it was at the Hubba Hubba club on hotel Street in Honolulu and can't honestly say I remember much past that. If you have a hankering for genuine dark molasses rum, don't turn your nose up at Myer's.
Rhum bon pour les cocktails, ne pas boire seul, c'est déconseillé
40% ABV. Years ago I used this for baking only, but recently I had the opportunity to actually try it neat. It’s better than I was expecting. It’s youthful, “dark”-tasting, with notes of caramel and a pleasant Jamaican funk underlying it all. It's also not as sweet as Coruba, which could be a pro or a con depending on what you're looking for.
As ubiquitous as this is, it's really not bad, and I'd be satisfied using this in Planter's Punches.
This rum goes well with coke. Its not really enjoyable just plain for sipping. Works good in mixed drinks.
I prefer spiced rums, but this was really nice. I personally enjoyed it on the rocks, but it may be too strong for some. Very tasty, hints of smoke, wood, tobacco and molasses. Definitely one to go back to.
Great for mixing: nice flavor, some funk, not too sweet. Works great in a Trader Vic's planter's punch: a good amount of flavor, but doesn't overpower the drink. The one annoying thing is that recently, most stores that carry it seem to only have it in plastic bottles
Good for mixing. Although there are better ones, depending on your taste. I like the taste of raisens or marzipan in a mixer rum. Like El Dorado Dark or Inner Circle Red. This one clearly doesn't have that.
Slušný priemerný rum, ktorý ma slúžiť na to, na čo je vyrobený. A to ako hlavná prísada do miešaných drinkov. Podľa mňa misia je splnená a nemá význam hodnotiť senzorické vlastnosti tohto rumu, pretože v tejto cenovej relácii nemožno očakávať zážitok ako pri 20 a viac ročných rumoch. Aj keď sa dá s prižmúreným okom vypiť aj samotný, určite urobíte lepšie, keď do neho vylejete kolu alebo ginger beer...pohoda
En ok rom.
Absolut inga fel att sitta och smutta på men lyckas inte fängsla dig.
Färgen är mörkröd/brun aromen lite spretig och vass.
Smaken har samma tendenser som aromen, tyvärr...
I detect molasses and oak right away on the nose, suggesting some older rum has been blended. The texture is quite creamy, and moderately thick (you can watch it try to stick to the glass in the right light). The flavor is VERY mild, with subtle flavors of caramel and molasses/caramelized sugar. This is a rum made for the masses, for all the people that need something easy and affordable for a mixer, or something that goes down super easy on the rocks.
This is the rum that started my exploration of rums beyond your typical Captain's and Coke.
As a newbie, I won't try to describe the flavors this imparts as I've never tried sipping it, preferring it as a mixer with ginger ale (as opposed to Coke like many other reviewers) when I'm out at the bars. I will, however, tell you that this spirit has been responsible for many enjoyable nights spent with friends that are pleasantly, if somewhat hazily, recalled...
It's rich and almost earthy, with sweet and peppery spices. Vanilla, brown sugar and coffee add sweetness and complexity. Finishes a bit hot to be a pure sipping rum, but there's a good reason bartenders the world over reach for it to make a variety of cocktails. Not worth the price and smells bad.
I have been buying this rum for 10 years now and it has never disappointed me so far.
More specifically, I use it all the time for tiki cocktails and its the best one I have tried yet.
Dark and rich it suits almost every cocktail/longdrink that calls for dark rums.
However I wouldn't suggest sipping on it, cause its quite heavy
Regarding price I buy it at a price of 20€
Myers Dark is just an okay rum for me I use it more for cooking than drinking because it’s bark is as worse as it’s bite. In a pinch I would drink this over substandard Rums as Bacardi but other than that it is just a passable rum for me
I've been using this for years in Mai Tai's and Rum Runners, but just tasted it neat for the first time. Very bitter and harsh, but I don't think it's made for sipping. Always have a bottle on hand, but won't be tasting straight again.
I have been drinking this old standby mixer for 30 years. Whenever I want a very rich and dark molasses flavor that seldom offends, this one can be counted upon. Any time I don't want to figure out what to order at a bar, I just ask for Myers and Coke. If the bartender offers Pepsi instead, I gladly accept the upgrade. I never sip this one neat or on the rocks. It is also fairly cheap and very readily available anywhere. However, as for keeping this one in your cabinet, you would be better off using Pusser's 84 proof.
I like rum on the rocks, but this will be use on cold winter nights with my favorite hot buttered rum mix.
