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.

This rum goes well with coke. Its not really enjoyable just plain for sipping. Works good in mixed drinks.

A generic dark rum, nothing special about the flavour and not really smooth enough to drink straight.

Close to perfection for a dark rum! Dense and smooth. Great with cola or ginger ale.

I have had so many more rums than I have time to write about. Myers original dark should be a bar staple for tiki drinks, although my quest has taken me far from that arena. But I tell you what a Myers and Pineapple is like a pairing made in heaven. Will do in a pinch for rum coke when left with no better options.

Classic and must have for any bar. Great floater on Mai Tai's

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.

This is a great mixing rum for recipes calling for dark rum. I use it in my Mai Tai and hurricanes, etc.

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.

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.

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.
