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.
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Výrazná, silná vůně, hodně melasová, karamelová. Trochu kyselosti, mízy, čerstvé kůry ze stromu, mléčná čokoláda. (86 b)
Chuť: Velmi suchý na jazyku. Karamel, spousta melasy, v dochuti pak lehká nahořklost, lékořice a opálené dřevo. (80 b)
Shrnutí: Tento rum se používá hlavně do míchaných nápojů. Vůně je oproti chuti výrazně zajímavější. Stylově i vzhledem k ceně a hlavnímu účelu použití nemám žádné výhrady, na grog nebo třeba do tiramisu musí být super. Ale dá se pít i normálně samotný.
Burnt molasses flavored sugar cookies. Drink this? No. Worst rum ever and eventually poured the rest down the sink. Tried to like it. But don't know why this is still sold in liquor stores because its so awful.
I enjoy this with a coke, however it is not what I would prefer to sip it the end of an evening.
I wasn't expecting much as I tried this at a friends house who isn't much of a rum drinker. Had it on the rocks and it seemed rather harsh at the time. I see this has a decent pedigree so I may give it a second chance, but my one glass impression is there are better options at this price.
I didn't think much of this. I hear people on this site claming that it makes a great mixer...well that can depend how much you want to hide the flavour if the rum isn't very good, and how much you are working with it if it is. In this case, I'd be wanting to hide it. Above all, I found this bitter and lacking complexity. For only slightly more, Havana Club 7 is hugely superior and is much better neat and in the mix.
Le pire rhum que j'ai goûté, même en Cuba libre c'est pas bon!!!!
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.
As a sailor conducting oceanographic research in the Caribbean in the late 70s, we had ready access to Myers. Drinkable on the rock and mixed well with cola and ginger beer. Nothing great, but a consistently good drink. Color is dark and appealing an aroma is good with a hint of burnt molasses. Last time I drank it was at the Hubba Hubba club on hotel Street in Honolulu and can't honestly say I remember much past that. If you have a hankering for genuine dark molasses rum, don't turn your nose up at Myer's.
Rhum bon pour les cocktails, ne pas boire seul, c'est déconseillé
40% ABV. Years ago I used this for baking only, but recently I had the opportunity to actually try it neat. It’s better than I was expecting. It’s youthful, “dark”-tasting, with notes of caramel and a pleasant Jamaican funk underlying it all. It's also not as sweet as Coruba, which could be a pro or a con depending on what you're looking for.
As ubiquitous as this is, it's really not bad, and I'd be satisfied using this in Planter's Punches.
This rum goes well with coke. Its not really enjoyable just plain for sipping. Works good in mixed drinks.
I prefer spiced rums, but this was really nice. I personally enjoyed it on the rocks, but it may be too strong for some. Very tasty, hints of smoke, wood, tobacco and molasses. Definitely one to go back to.
Great for mixing: nice flavor, some funk, not too sweet. Works great in a Trader Vic's planter's punch: a good amount of flavor, but doesn't overpower the drink. The one annoying thing is that recently, most stores that carry it seem to only have it in plastic bottles
Good for mixing. Although there are better ones, depending on your taste. I like the taste of raisens or marzipan in a mixer rum. Like El Dorado Dark or Inner Circle Red. This one clearly doesn't have that.
Slušný priemerný rum, ktorý ma slúžiť na to, na čo je vyrobený. A to ako hlavná prísada do miešaných drinkov. Podľa mňa misia je splnená a nemá význam hodnotiť senzorické vlastnosti tohto rumu, pretože v tejto cenovej relácii nemožno očakávať zážitok ako pri 20 a viac ročných rumoch. Aj keď sa dá s prižmúreným okom vypiť aj samotný, určite urobíte lepšie, keď do neho vylejete kolu alebo ginger beer...pohoda
En ok rom.
Absolut inga fel att sitta och smutta på men lyckas inte fängsla dig.
Färgen är mörkröd/brun aromen lite spretig och vass.
Smaken har samma tendenser som aromen, tyvärr...
