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.

Nothing for a special occasion, but fine to mix with on a hot summer evening.

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.

A bit harsh, not quite as good a flavor as an Appleton 8.

Flavorful but a little sharp. Great with grapefruit juice-lightly sweetens.

This rum adds a lot to almost any drink, use in small amounts or it is too flavorful

This is usually what there is to drink at bars. Not a true "fine rum", but it is better than not drinking dark rum.
