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.
Jamaican dunder, molasses, all the flavors you expect from a dark rum and very little sweetness, There is a reason this rum has been around as long as it has, and it is not because of cute commercials on TV every 10 minutes.
I was searching for a drink that is easy to make and I tried them all. Vodka lemon, Whiskey sour, Averna sour, and many more (ok I skipped Tequila...). So I worked my way through the supermarket's liquor shelf from left to right. One day I found myself in front of the far right side of that shelf, the rum area.
I thought "hmm, the last time I had rum I was a teenager and it gave ma a bad headache". But on the other hand this kind of liquor wasn't on my radar at all, so I knew nothing about it. I chose a bottle that I never saw before - Meyer's dark rum. Because I didn't know what flavour I was about to experience, I also bought Schweppes ginger ale, bitter lemon and cola. Just to be sure. Long story short: it tastes awesome in any event! In fact I tried orange juice, apple juice, coconut milk and even hazelnut milk. Trust me: if you like the type of juice you mix it with, you cannot go wrong with Myer's dark rum! It's gonna fit perfectly. I have to admit though... Cola is my favourite mix. I always have a bottle of Myer's at home.
This is a deep, dark mahogany colored rum with a very nice aroma hinting of vanilla, molasses, and sweetness. The flavor is rather dry with the molasses being detectable but quickly overtaken by a marked oak flavor due to the barrels in which it was kept. The finish is rather mild but fairly good. Take it for what it is...a rum intended for mixing. Good for tropical drinks, boat drinks, colas, et al. Readily available at just about every liquor store I've seen.
pretty smooth, decent mid shelf dark rum. Perfect for Mai Tai's or with cola
Myers is another rum which is nice with coke but too strong tasting for on the rocks.
Have used this as a mixer rum for 40 years starting back when rum fruit drinks were king and I was a teen. My recommendation is stack this as your mixer against Gosling Black Seal and let the tribe decide. Each has it strengths.
You shouldn't have a hard time finding it in the US. It's everywhere. Sugar cane sweetness, this is ideal as an affordable molasses rum for coke. Great ingredient for rum cake and other baked rum pastries. Don't forget to soak that cake.
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.
Ein sehr aromatischer Rum zum kochen, backen und mixen.
A very aromatic rum for cooking, baking and mixing.
The rum is 50% inviting and 50% telling you to watch out!.
"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."

Nothing Fine About It 4 out of 10
but it does make a passable dark and stormy. You get what you pay for, if your only going to mix rum then this crap isn't such a bad way to go. If I can't sip it I'm not a fan. Reserve this for your timid fruit drink friends.
