Myers's Original Dark

Jamaica | Dark

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.

One of the first rums that got me hooked. Haven't had any in years and can't wait to have another bottle. I bought some for the bar where I work recently and could only have a smell -toffee and banana, caramel.
For the same price as the already selling Capn M it won't be long until it kicks the latter off the shelves.

Saying that, the bottle does actually look like a large bottle of cough syrup, but a minor flaw in a superior tasting "cheap" rum. I'd have this before Mount Gay Eclipse or the Havanas.

Info: Trinke Rum nur pur.

Riecht richtig schön schokoladig. Geschmacklich geht er auch in die Richtung, er erinnert mich irgendwie an die Weihnachtszeit. Ich finde ihn nur leider zu stark beim ersten Schluck.
Warum nur 5/10? Der Myer's war mein erster gekaufter Rum und daher der Einstieg in meine Bewertungen.

This has a strong taste. It is a ok rum for making sweet mixed drinks. There are better quality rims in this category for about the same price.

Took a little time to appreciate some of the darker, navy rums, but I took a liking to Myers immediately. I enjoy it mixed or on the rocks. It's full bodied and full flavored for a 40%er which I like since many of the darker rums are over-proofed. Myers is a bold rum not for everyone's taste, but I am never disappointed when it is served.

I was recommended this by someone who found out i was a rum lover. I can only conclude they didnt like me. Glad i didnt but a bottle. Mind you I’m not a big fan of dark, navy or most jamaican rum.

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.
