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.
Easily consumable in a bind
This is a classic mixing rum, but I find it too heavy and too much of a molasses taste. I have other favorites for floating a mai tai.
Not anything I would drink neat. However, a staple for the dark & stormy. Not really my rum for any other mixer. I would agree it is good as floater...because it packs a wallop.
Ive always used Myers Dark as a floater for my famous home-made pina coladas, as well as in my Hurricanes. works great as an accompnier. way too stout for my sipping taste
I have not found the drink that this rum is best in, I guess that I will have to keep on trying. I like my drinks with as few ingredients as possible, but Myers seems to need strong mixers.
Just bought this the other day and am trying out the suggestions on the back (w/o the Grenadine). With orange juice, this is actually pretty smooth, and tasty...you can tell there is rum in it for sure. By itself, it is fairly harsh.
This is one of the first rums I can still remember. There were others previous to it, but I can't remember them anymore. This one is quite ubiquitous, so you should be able to find it with little difficulty. However, it's primarily for mixing. Tasty enough, but not smooth enough.
"Initially it is all caramel and burnt toffee almost like black treacle. As the aroma develops that rich Jamaican aroma also makes an entrance amongst the dense treacle."
