Myers's Original Dark rum

Myers's Original Dark

Jamaica | Dark

Myerโ€™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.

Really good dark rum. Itโ€™s smooth and rich in flavor. I enjoy Coke or Pepsi with 2oz shot. Also very good in other mixed drinks. Iโ€™m shocked the rating is 5.8. Should be around a 7.8. Anyway very good rum always mellows me out.

I bought my first bottle of Myers's on a whim in June, the day after I had poured the last drop from my bottle of Gosling's Black Seal, and in my humble opinion, the buck stops here. It melds beautifully with every mixer that I have thrown at it - orange juice, lemon juice, mango nectar, pineapple juice, lemonade, coconut milk, Dr. Pepper, Coca-Cola, and even Arizona Sweet Tea - but at the end of the day, I generally drink it neat. I actually enjoy the fact that it isn't quite as smooth on the palate as Gosling's because it compels me to pace myself, sipping it slowly and taking the time to savor it, and enjoy every nuance of the vanilla and molasses notes.

Ever since I tried this rum, haven't wanted to try another brand. With a strong pungent sweet taste it goes well in coca cola.

El Dorado 8 is my other all-time favorite. This is a bit more sweet. So, not quite as good to mix with Coca-Cola unless twist of lime. Perfect for pineapple juice. Love it!

Great with little ice, tonic, and lime.

If you want a dark rum, this is easy to find, cheap, and spot on delicious. Amazing with Dr. Pepper

Great for professional mixing in so many island drinks. Love to drink straight up though. Maybe too strong for too many. but sad to see so many have rated this so poorly... what is this Rotten Tomatoes? 5.9? really!? should be an 8 at least, Give it another drink if your the type that likes overmixing brown sugar in your peanut butter cookies.

A personal favorite for many years. Great color and taste with a wonderful aroma. Perfect mixer for anything such as juice or soda, anything.

This has a strong molasses smell and really hits the spot in a cocktail. Lots of funky flavors, which I hear is typical of Jamaican rums. I think I'm in love.

And it even tastes good straight!

I get a strong cherry taste, grapefruit, and some wood taste/smell, way more complex than anything else I've had locally sold (our stores don't carry much though). Taste is very potent and so is the smell. It has some bitterness but it's not an offensive bitterness (like cheap stuff) to me.

I strongly suspect I am biased towards jamaican rums with a lot of hogo, take it as you will
