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.

I love this rum for mixed drinks. The dark sweet and sugary taste makes it a great rum for the perfect piña colada.

My overall favorite for mixed drinks.

Not great for sipping. Unless you have had more than a few of the good one and you run out of other options. Way too sweet.

I love using this as a multi rum mixer. It is sweet, but also great with coke. Great molasses and vanilla notes.

Maybe because it is a blend of rums of various ages, I get confused. Not a strong nose, but strong on the palet. I have drank it mixed, but prefer to make great Christmas puddings and cakes with it.

Strong dark rum. Wouldn’t recommend it on the rocks. Not an everyday rum... but enjoyable if you wanted a stronger heavy aftertaste

Ik moet eerlijk zeggen dat dit niks voor mij is. Ik heb veel rum gedronken maar dit is toch 1 van de mindere.

Starts with a heavy aroma that leads to a distinctive taste. This is not a sipping rum, it is the perfect rum for mixing with carbonated drinks, coke being the most favorite. I like it with 7-up or Sprite for the lighter side, also good with other runs for blending.

A true classic that should be in every bar...

Rich, deep flavorful dark rum that goes down easily.

Good mixer rum and definitely grows on you. Didn't used to like rum but if you start slow you'll love it soon enough. Maybe not the best to start with though.

Meyer’s has a terrible after taste. Not smooth. But in most bars this is the only dark rum available. Without marketing this rum would not exist

Purchased a bottle on a golf trip as it was on sale. Next time I'll spend more to enjoy my mixed drinks. Drank with Coke and with Gingerale.

Myers is a good all around Rum. You can do anything with it. Sip it, mix it, blender it with some Coco Lopez and pineapple juice, or as a Floater on top of your favorite cocktail. Are there better Rums? Of Course! That's why we love this website!!! But for a good go to Rum, Myers is hard to beat.
