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.
From my experience with Jamaican rums, there is one thing that they specialize in: boisterous, muscular FUNK. This Jamaican... doesn't do that. Which is really weird, because on the nose, it's essentially Smith&Cross, but funkless. Flavorwise, it's the same way. It tastes fine, but also really comes across like its missing something. The rum just feels kind of empty. On the bright side though, there's a swelling chocolate finish, so that's nice!
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.
Heavy molasses on the nose, and a rich caramel/treacle delight to drink. I found it better on the rocks which helped separate the complex flavours. This one gives a nice caramel kick when mixed with cola.
Definitely one for mixed drinks or with cola. A solid dark rum a little underwhelming but still a good one to have in the cabinet
Love this stuff. Good strong Jamaican rum right here. Mixes well like everyone else has already said. A bit bitter.
Sugar: 6 to 10 gpl. This is the rum that you need for Pina Colada or a Rum and coke. It is not a sipping rum but when you are at a resort this is an upgrade to whatever they are using for the bar rum. In a pinch choose this over whatever else is on the resort bar shelf for a mixer.
Pretty much sweet molasses with a bad bite if straight. I don't particularly fancy it with code either - almost a fake sweet after taste. Think I'll stick with Plantation or a few others as coke mixers.
Not a sipping rum, but for price good to have. Pleasant aroma, chocolate, molasses, hint of funk. Neat is dry, burns a bit, flavor is interesting, but the burn obscures the details. Makes an interesting rum n come, good in punch. Overall it's decent for the price
