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
I bought it for mixing and it does the job. A bit heavy on the molasses and sweetness so I don't sip it. But in cocktails it's wonderfully spicy.
I tried this several times in Jamaica. Flavor was OK but no real complexity and a bit too much burn on the short finish. I would reserve this for mixing.
I like my Rums neat, this is definitely a mixer. It has some "nice" weird flavours going on when neat, but it really does seem to work great as a mixer.
Dark, full of flavor, you could sip it. It makes killer Rum&Coke and Rum&GingerBeer. It's better than Gosling Black Seal.
I really like this rum , it does have a bold taste, but that is what I need for some of the island drinks I love. And I do enjoy the sweetness.
Neither funky, nor oaky. Nonetheless it has a satisfying intensity, stemming mostly from molasses. Whenever cocktail recipes call for a "dark Jamaican rum", I use this one.
"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."
