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.
For drinks that call for a dark rum, this works. It's got a flavor distinct from light/clear rums and I really enjoyed using it for hurricanes with Pat O's syrup. Better than average and if used in the right drink can be really nice.
I felt this was much too sweet to drink straight on the rocks. Probably better served as a mixer.
This one is ok for mixed drinks but now that I am older and have a little money, I perfer a good ru that I can drink straight.
If you like mixed rum drinks and have a tight budget then Myers is ok.
I agree with others. Use it for a rum and Coke, but leave it there.
just a typical mix drink rum got a nice sweet taste to it
I like this rum for rum and coke and for cooking..
Very similar to Captain Morgan's dark... good but not great
You cannot sip this one, but why not mix with coke or use in a cocktail?
Sugar: 6 to 10 gpl. This is the rum that you need for Pina Colada or a Rum and coke. It is not a sipping rum but when you are at a resort this is an upgrade to whatever they are using for the bar rum. In a pinch choose this over whatever else is on the resort bar shelf for a mixer.
There is a reason this rum is still popular. It is a nice rum, which I like to drink with coke. But it sets the standard for other dark rums to aspire to.
Stiff drink with a gentle brown sugar-esque nose. Could drink stright in a pinch but goes better with cola.
Jamaican dunder, molasses, all the flavors you expect from a dark rum and very little sweetness, There is a reason this rum has been around as long as it has, and it is not because of cute commercials on TV every 10 minutes.
Good for mixing Usually available most anywhere. A old favorite Not to shabby on the rocks. Not so good neat. But after a glass or 2 rolls down a lot smoother. Dark and tastes a little on the sweet side. For the price a good deal
This is a dark sweet rum that pairs perfect with coke a cola. This should be in all houses for a great go to.
indispensable in my kitchen !
think Rum balls, Rum carmal sauce and other Rum goodies
I made a mistake after tasting a Zacapa 23yo and bought this without knowing much about rums.I tried to drink it straight up. As i hate Rum-Cola mixes ,it wasn't a great experience.I see this rum mixed in cocktails but not a sipper
Myers is another rum which is nice with coke but too strong tasting for on the rocks.
Great for rum and cokes. Has that molasses flavor for lots of flavor
This rum is fine but would not be my first, second or third choice
Revised: This was the first really flavorful rum I tried. It's a common ingredient in tiki drinks, many of which rely on a blend of rums, cordials and other flavorings along with juice and it does well here. I've also enjoyed a splash of this in tea. Stright up it tastes a little harsh so while it's not a sipping rum, it's a reliable mixer with a pungent flaver so it's always on my shelf.
This is a nice but very traditional strong rum flavour. Not for those people who don't want there rum tasting like rum
If you like rum and coke this is a great full bodied rum. The aroma is great as is the rather strong spicy taste. I like it with an ice cube or two.
“Mon amie laissez le bon temps rouler!”
If you're into making tiki drinks at home as much as I am, then you'll pretty much always have a bottle of this stuff around. Great dark rum for mixing. A nice amount of funk, spice, and sweetness. About as good a bottle of $20 rum there is for my money.
Not much more to offer here, all the reviews speak to it like it is. I find this a must have for planters punch base cocktails but then that's me.
Another bottle rating a spot on my mixing shelf.
