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.
I learned to drink Myer’s when I lived in the continental US and enjoyed its brown sugar flavor with watery coca cola & plenty of ice. By the second drink I eas into Jamaica rhythms and it reminded me of my Puerto Rico.....great taste and refreshing!
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.
just a typical mix drink rum got a nice sweet taste to it
I like this rum for rum and coke and for cooking..
Very similar to Captain Morgan's dark... good but not great
You cannot sip this one, but why not mix with coke or use in a cocktail?
There is a reason this rum is still popular. It is a nice rum, which I like to drink with coke. But it sets the standard for other dark rums to aspire to.
Stiff drink with a gentle brown sugar-esque nose. Could drink stright in a pinch but goes better with cola.
Good for mixing Usually available most anywhere. A old favorite Not to shabby on the rocks. Not so good neat. But after a glass or 2 rolls down a lot smoother. Dark and tastes a little on the sweet side. For the price a good deal
indispensable in my kitchen !
think Rum balls, Rum carmal sauce and other Rum goodies
I made a mistake after tasting a Zacapa 23yo and bought this without knowing much about rums.I tried to drink it straight up. As i hate Rum-Cola mixes ,it wasn't a great experience.I see this rum mixed in cocktails but not a sipper
Great for rum and cokes. Has that molasses flavor for lots of flavor
This rum is fine but would not be my first, second or third choice
Revised: This was the first really flavorful rum I tried. It's a common ingredient in tiki drinks, many of which rely on a blend of rums, cordials and other flavorings along with juice and it does well here. I've also enjoyed a splash of this in tea. Stright up it tastes a little harsh so while it's not a sipping rum, it's a reliable mixer with a pungent flaver so it's always on my shelf.
This is a nice but very traditional strong rum flavour. Not for those people who don't want there rum tasting like rum
If you like rum and coke this is a great full bodied rum. The aroma is great as is the rather strong spicy taste. I like it with an ice cube or two.
“Mon amie laissez le bon temps rouler!”
If you're into making tiki drinks at home as much as I am, then you'll pretty much always have a bottle of this stuff around. Great dark rum for mixing. A nice amount of funk, spice, and sweetness. About as good a bottle of $20 rum there is for my money.
Not much more to offer here, all the reviews speak to it like it is. I find this a must have for planters punch base cocktails but then that's me.
Another bottle rating a spot on my mixing shelf.
I cant say I liked anything about this rum, but I also cant say anything bad about it either. Not my first choice but a decent all around rum. I drank this on ice and it went down like water.
and tasty mixing rum. Nothing too special but solid enough
I found this way too harsh to drink with cola (diet pepsi), as it gave a medicinal taste. Im sure it has its fans, but i dont see the appeal. If this was the only rum available, id rather spend my money on a decent bottle of rye.
