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.
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.
Flavorful but a little sharp. Great with grapefruit juice-lightly sweetens.
This rum adds a lot to almost any drink, use in small amounts or it is too flavorful
Nice dark rum usually a well in some bars.
This is usually what there is to drink at bars. Not a true "fine rum", but it is better than not drinking dark rum.
Good for cooking as well
Standard for dark rum mixed drinks. It's a little harsh but aside from that a value rum.
I was introduced to Meyers via cola. A friend drinks this combo all the time. Wonderful with cola. I find it now, after drinking other rums - a bit (tiny) harsh, but a very good rum none the less. Just ordered one this last weekend!
This is a very good dark rum that is not bad in Dark N Stormy's, but better suited to rum punches or mai tais.
Honestly I can't even remember what it tastes like... it's become so ubiquitous... remind me to try it again later. I suspect it's chuck full of artificial color and flavor, but I might be wrong, and that might be really mean to say. If there was an edit or delete for these reviews I would update for sure, but I'm three reviews short of getting my free El Dorado nip, so I'm reaching, sorry guys! ;o)
Better than your typical navy rum, this heavy molasses has bags of stewed fruit and treacle on offer. Great for cocktails.
This is a good standard dark rum available in most bars. It's not as silky as some of the better ones but I can drink it straight or chilled. It's not as syrupy/molassesy as a Black Seal or a Blackstrap, I think the alcohol finish is what puts me off the most, just not as mellow as I prefer.
This rum is OK if no other is around. It has a subtle taste and goes down easily
Good mixer, but also nice on ice.
