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 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.

Better than your typical navy rum, this heavy molasses has bags of stewed fruit and treacle on offer. Great for cocktails.

This is a good standard dark rum available in most bars. It's not as silky as some of the better ones but I can drink it straight or chilled. It's not as syrupy/molassesy as a Black Seal or a Blackstrap, I think the alcohol finish is what puts me off the most, just not as mellow as I prefer.

This rum is OK if no other is around. It has a subtle taste and goes down easily

Good mixer, but also nice on ice.

First sampled in the Bahamas to an old Jamaican punch recipe, this rum can hold its own in rainy Devon, which says a lot.
