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.
This is a deep, dark mahogany colored rum with a very nice aroma hinting of vanilla, molasses, and sweetness. The flavor is rather dry with the molasses being detectable but quickly overtaken by a marked oak flavor due to the barrels in which it was kept. The finish is rather mild but fairly good. Take it for what it is...a rum intended for mixing. Good for tropical drinks, boat drinks, colas, et al. Readily available at just about every liquor store I've seen.
pretty smooth, decent mid shelf dark rum. Perfect for Mai Tai's or with cola
I love this one for topping the maitai or a mojito. In the kitchen it is also a good one, dark rum rules
I like Myer's for making Mai Tai's and feel it would be great in other sweet tropical drinks. I thought it was a bit harsh straight. I think Goslings is slightly smoother. As for mixing with coke, I prefer Captain, but this is not bad. A good standard in dark rum to have in the bar for tropical mixers.
I like to use it in a philadelphia fishhouse punch, works very well! Not bad for the price, but i won't drink it on it's own
Seriously, I thought, years ago, that this reminded me of a black, coal tar based cough medicine called Rem. It's that bad. I just wonder why I ever bought a second bottle.
This is a great mixing rum for recipes calling for dark rum. I use it in my Mai Tai and hurricanes, etc.
Definitely one for mixed drinks or with cola. A solid dark rum a little underwhelming but still a good one to have in the cabinet
Smoother than other widely distributed dark rums- I much prefer Myer's to Gostling's. I find the alcohol is more subdued on the finish and the depth of flavor more complex. It is my go-to for floats and mixed drinks.
Not much flavor here and absolutely zero complexity. Yes, it's popular but there are much more flavorful Jamaicans which produce tastier drinks. This is only useful for mixing, but really, you can find better.
I've heard good things about Myers's, and how it's a classic, but I didn't feel the magic. There was an intense plastic taste, though it came in a glass bottle. Giving the benefit of the doubt, I'm rating this a 3 since it may have just been a bad batch, but I'm disinclined to try Myers's Original Dark again.
Like others have said, not the best but a step up from sailor jerry and bacardi for mass party consumption
One of the most famous rums in the world, fine example of dark rum as introduction, as well as Jamaican rum, it is hard to go back once you've tasted better. But I do.
Bought in San Fransisco for something different. Nothing special but more than drinkable.
We bought this one on holiday as we did forget to bring some good rum with us and this was the best looking and most expensive rum we did get there.
As we sipped that one we looked at each other and almost spit it out. We also tried mixing it, but that is no pleasure... I prefer to drink rum straight up, but also mixed we couldn't & wouldn't use this bottle and emptied it to the sink...
Lo compre en el aeropuerto de Orlando en el DutyFree, en México no llega.
Ron económico y con botella en forma de botella de medicina.
Tiene un sabor muy fuerte y sin chiste, solo se siente el alcohol. Nada fuera de lo común.
Virkelig flot farvet rum og til prisen, må den siges at være ganske fornuftig også.
Hat einen starken Rum Geschmack. Pur nicht so mein Fall aber mit Cola oder zum mixen nicht schlecht.
I really only use it as a mixer or topper, but I have tried to sip on it a few times. Just not my type of rum I guess.
Myers's rum is one to mix with ginger beer or a cocktail. But if you're a little heavy handed on the servings, its all you'll taste its extremely dark and pleasant if served correctly. But if you're not a dark rum fan then I wouldn't recommend this one to ya.
Relatively cheap, great for mixing. Current favourite Mai Tai rum for me.
I think this rum has agricole (sugar cane) mixed in. It also includes notes of molasses, brown sugar, and a light peppery spice. Goes down smooth for 40% abv and is a pretty good dark rum.
I'm not much of a Myers and coke person but living in Florida we make a lot of exotic pool side drinks, and for us our favorite mixer is Myers!
