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.
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.
I love this one for topping the maitai or a mojito. In the kitchen it is also a good one, dark rum rules
Seriously, I thought, years ago, that this reminded me of a black, coal tar based cough medicine called Rem. It's that bad. I just wonder why I ever bought a second bottle.
Not much flavor here and absolutely zero complexity. Yes, it's popular but there are much more flavorful Jamaicans which produce tastier drinks. This is only useful for mixing, but really, you can find better.
I've heard good things about Myers's, and how it's a classic, but I didn't feel the magic. There was an intense plastic taste, though it came in a glass bottle. Giving the benefit of the doubt, I'm rating this a 3 since it may have just been a bad batch, but I'm disinclined to try Myers's Original Dark again.
Like others have said, not the best but a step up from sailor jerry and bacardi for mass party consumption
Bought in San Fransisco for something different. Nothing special but more than drinkable.
We bought this one on holiday as we did forget to bring some good rum with us and this was the best looking and most expensive rum we did get there.
As we sipped that one we looked at each other and almost spit it out. We also tried mixing it, but that is no pleasure... I prefer to drink rum straight up, but also mixed we couldn't & wouldn't use this bottle and emptied it to the sink...
Lo compre en el aeropuerto de Orlando en el DutyFree, en México no llega.
Ron económico y con botella en forma de botella de medicina.
Tiene un sabor muy fuerte y sin chiste, solo se siente el alcohol. Nada fuera de lo común.
Virkelig flot farvet rum og til prisen, må den siges at være ganske fornuftig også.
Hat einen starken Rum Geschmack. Pur nicht so mein Fall aber mit Cola oder zum mixen nicht schlecht.
I really only use it as a mixer or topper, but I have tried to sip on it a few times. Just not my type of rum I guess.
Myers's rum is one to mix with ginger beer or a cocktail. But if you're a little heavy handed on the servings, its all you'll taste its extremely dark and pleasant if served correctly. But if you're not a dark rum fan then I wouldn't recommend this one to ya.
Relatively cheap, great for mixing. Current favourite Mai Tai rum for me.
I'm not much of a Myers and coke person but living in Florida we make a lot of exotic pool side drinks, and for us our favorite mixer is Myers!
Utility run that has flavor. Good for mixing with stuff.
For drinks that call for a dark rum, this works. It's got a flavor distinct from light/clear rums and I really enjoyed using it for hurricanes with Pat O's syrup. Better than average and if used in the right drink can be really nice.
I felt this was much too sweet to drink straight on the rocks. Probably better served as a mixer.
This one is ok for mixed drinks but now that I am older and have a little money, I perfer a good ru that I can drink straight.
If you like mixed rum drinks and have a tight budget then Myers is ok.
