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.

This is a dark sweet rum that pairs perfect with coke a cola. This should be in all houses for a great go to.

Really cheap, even in the Netherlands (12€). Smells very strong out of the bottle, but fades nicely with cola. Not my favourite Jamaican rum, but certainly better than anything in this low, low price bracket.

This rum isn't special, but it serves its purpose well in mixed drinks.

Настоящая Ямайка, в ее лучших проявлениях! Достаточно молод, но на правильном пути к тому самому Ямайскому фанку. Дерзкий, безукоризненный он явно не для прекрасной половины пола...

Pretty good rum for mixing with strong molasses flavour. Easy to find. Big value for little money!

This is best as a topper for a frozen Pina Colada. Not bad in a Dark and Stormy too, but prefer Goslings . . .

As already stated a solid mixer not a sipping rum for me

Bál som sa ochutnať tento rum podobne ako Bozkov. No tu som dostal za tú cenu úplne inú kvalitu. V kategórii do 15eur patrí medzi tie lepšie, daju sa a ním robiť fajn miešané drinky,ale nik neumrie ani keď ho vypije samotný.

once upon a time i was out drinking with my buddies, it got late, realities started to blend. i ended up ordering a myers coke, first time i tried it, and simply loved it. fast forward a few days, same bar, same order and then it happened.."what's this? this is not myers! bartender looks at me, says what do mean? and he made me another one, not convinced he made a mistake but better to keep the idiot happy. and now i'm the one staring at my glass in disbelief, i clearly saw him poor from the myers bottle, and before you mention it, no they don't fill crap in premium bottles. i just didn't like it AT ALL. discussed it with the bartender, could he have poured another rum on that evening? it's possible, or me being drunk just had a drunky experience and when sober it plunged into reality. never got the answer. myers, you made me happy for 1 night, you never loved me again.

This was the first rum I saw that was the color of coca cola. I expected it to be overly or sickly sweet...but it wasn't. It is actually a decent enough rum for someone on a real budget. It's also a great rum for mixing, especially for Cuba Libres. You can drink it on the rocks in a pinch but its not really quite at that level. This is one of the most common rums seen in bars for a good reason. It is inexpensive, a great mixer, and acceptable (even if barely) to drink straight. It has a deep molasses taste .
