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.

I love this rum for mixed drinks. The dark sweet and sugary taste makes it a great rum for the perfect piña colada.
My overall favorite for mixed drinks.
Not great for sipping. Unless you have had more than a few of the good one and you run out of other options. Way too sweet.
This is usually the best dark rum a bar may have, so I've had plenty of this over the years when ordering a rum and coke. I'm not a fan of spiced rum, but I like dark rum, so this is usually my best option at a cheap bar. Better than other similar priced rums for mixing, but not by a lot.
But still not great. Again if this is the only rum the bar you're at mixes then run for the hills. Your bartender doesn't know anything.
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.
Many a Planter’s Punch or rum cocktail used to be made with this in all the beach bars and hotels in JA (along with Wray Nephews overproof) 🤓. I am sure Air Jamaica used to serve miniatures of this as well as Appleton.
"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."
