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
Interesting taste best drank with sprite or coke. Something to order in a bar and plan to drink a lot. It tastes better the more you drink.
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.
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.

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.
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.
Not anything I would drink neat. However, a staple for the dark & stormy. Not really my rum for any other mixer. I would agree it is good as floater...because it packs a wallop.
"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."
