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.
Love this stuff. Good strong Jamaican rum right here. Mixes well like everyone else has already said. A bit bitter.
Pretty much sweet molasses with a bad bite if straight. I don't particularly fancy it with code either - almost a fake sweet after taste. Think I'll stick with Plantation or a few others as coke mixers.
Great slightly muted jamaican flavor, oaky, molasses, and sweetness makes this one of the best. Certainly for the price point and availability. This is in every liquor store in North America and just about every bar.
Classic Jamaican dark rum, not a high-end rum but good price, mixes well and makes a nice drink, I also like the dark rectangular glass bottle. I gave it a 7 out of 10.
I mean this stuff is pretty bad, especially given the price. The artificial whatevers they put into it are quite obvious. The best part of it is the second quarter which hints at a molasses that might be palatable but never fulfills its promise and then degrades into a mishmash of artificial additives.
If you're looking for a mixer just go bottom shelf generic. There's no point to this one.
I don't care for the strong flavor of this rum as a primary flavor, but I'll add just 1/2 oz. to a cocktail for a bit of that Jamaican funk. So the bottle should last me a long time.
This rum is a traditional dark rum from Jamaica. With the addition of molasses in the barrel during aging.
The nose is very fruity and we also smell molasses.
In mouth you can feel: molasses, ans vanilla slightly.
It is a very fragrant rum but not for sipping in my opinion. It’s excellent for cocktails. I take it regularly to replace Bacardi or Captain Morgan.
Another great rum for mixing on a budget. I like to use it in my everyday Mai Tai along with Cruzan Gold (now called dark for some reason). Good in a rum and coke.
"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."
