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.
THE very best for Cuba Libre, with excellent molasses sweetness. A must for Cuba Libre lovers!
Still tasty, but not the same as many other darks with more to offer. Fine for most mixing, good price.
Decent mixer, goes down well.
Like it in ginger beer.
Wouldn't drink it straight.
I like it. It is definitely not a sipping rum to me. Works very well in any mixed drink though. Cheers!
The standard for the industry. Great as a floater is most mixed drinks and stand alone in a dark and stormy. Try it with cola too.
but it does make a passable dark and stormy. You get what you pay for, if your only going to mix rum then this crap isn't such a bad way to go. If I can't sip it I'm not a fan. Reserve this for your timid fruit drink friends.
In Vietnam (of all places). It was hot and very humid. A beer went hot before it could be consumed, but one of these on ice surprisingly eased the discomfort of the humidity and heat. Sipping it slowly over ice, the heat and the humidity, no longer seemed too much to bear. In fact, all seemed to be as it should.
On a recent trip to Hong Kong, I found it very cheaply, in a Local neighbourhood grocery store. Bargin! and once more the heat and humidity seemed to be less uncomfortable with a Myers on the rocks.
There is nothing really wrong with this except the flowery after taste. Nice molasses taste and a bit of a gentle burn , reminds me of Black Heart navy rum. Would make a good mixer im sure.
I remember when this was one of the more exotic rums that were available. At the time I liked it pretty well with coke, but I sure am glad things progressed
really great for a hearty rum and coke but less is more when mixing this otherwise it turns to a glass of syrup real quick
Myers's Original Dark Rum van Jamaica is een prima dark rum voor in cocktails met die typische Jamaicaanse funk. Lekker.
I'm not quite sure why every restaurant or bar stocks this as a "good dark rum" when requested for my drink. My guess would be price only because it would not make it as a "top shelf" rum on taste alone. Very overpowering taste, to me it leaves a bad aftertaste if done straight up and only works in overly sweet mixed like Pina Coladas. I drink only when it's all they have. Never buy it for my shelf.
i have been drinking this rum with coke for 42 years, have been through the bacardes,capt morgans,etc.but have yet to find a better go to, down side the wife loves it to!! on occasion i pick up a bottle when in the US but here in canada ,meyers is blended with canadian & jamacian rums, go figure??
À venir prochainement.............................
It's the cornerstone of dark mixing rums. Enough said.
Caramel and burnt toffee nose and spicy,fiery finish.
This tastes like whisky and I hate whisky. I tried to drown the flavor with some orange drink, which I love mixing with Light out Gold Rum, but that just highlighted the smoky funk of this rum.
Follow the recipe on the back of the bottle to make the best colada's!
A normal dark rum, nothing special about the flavour and not really smooth enough to drink straight.
Neat.. Nope, but this stuff is excellent in a variety of Foofoo drinks. Good rum N coke too!
Obviously there is a reason why people drink so much Rum and Coke and the reason is that there are so many Rums that are made for it -like this one
Burning alcohol after taste and not much flavour to it. Might have been better with a mixer.
I was introduced to this as it was poured on top of a white rum stone sour cocktail in a round glass with crushed ice.Don't forget to garnish with a cherry to make a tasty rum swizzle.The dark Myers was notably tasty the first time I tried it 25 years ago as I was sucking the crushed ice out of the bottom of the glass. It was my first exposure to dark rums.It certainly has a unique flavor. On its own it's fine to drink with a bit of a mixer. I always keep a bit of this old friend around the house to use in those emergencies when I have run out of richer darks. It's usually available on the shelf of most liquor stores. That bumps it up a notch in my view.
Still tasty, but not the same as many other darks with more to offer. Fine for most mixing, but I would always choose another given a choice.
Bought a liter of this several years ago at duty free. Bit harsh and molasses-ly for me. Sat for a while before I realized it's a good mixer in the tiki drinks I make from now and again.
