Myers’s Original Dark is a world- famous Jamaican dark rum. Named after brand founder Fred L Myers, the molasses-derived blend of up to nine rums has been produced since 1879. Since 1879 the name ‘Myers’s’ has been recognized amongst the world’s finest, full-bodied rums. Distillation in traditional pot stills and maturation in white oak barrels determine its distinctive dark colour and rich buttery flavour. This dark rum is commonly used in mixed drinks. It is also a common cooking ingredient in a variety of both sweet and savory recipes. Dark rum differs from golden rum in that some residual molasses is retained in the final product, in order to slightly sweeten the flavour. Myers’s Original Dark is sienna brown in colour with lovely fresh scents of peppermint candy, golden syrup and fresh liquorice strap. The palate is medium weight, off dry and clean delivering a sarsaparilla like profile before finishing with sweeter notes of tobacco, anise and liquorice allsorts. Myers’s Original Dark is the pre-eminent cocktail dark rum but has plenty of character to enjoy on its own. Myers’s has retained its original bottle shape and tagline, ‘World Famous, Dark and Mellow’ for several decades. This rum is found in good bars the world over. a
