I like this rum , in strength of taste its somewhere between an OVD and a captain morgan .
It's not the best rum out there but if you like dark rum, this is a welcome brake from cracken , OVD, and the other run of the mill stuff . If you see it behind the bar give it a try before you go for the usual , it could be a welcome change for you .
After 2 or 3 they start going down dead easy .

I have to say that I don't understand what all the fuss is about. This is not a smooth rum. It may be OK mixed but there is little molasses taste and almost no cask vanilla overtones that one might expect from a rum with such good reviews. Sorry - maybe I'm missing something. My favourite sipping rum is Old Monk which is the king of molasses and this Myers's Rum comes nowhere close to it. On the positive side - it does come in a lovely bottle!

I've tried at least 40 kinds of dark rum - Myer's is the best. In Kenya and Tanzania last year I could not believe that it was everywhere - wow, what a beautiful way to relax after safari every day. I take it to my friends and it disappears in no time.

Best Rum in the World stocked by NAAFI's all over the World, smooth and mellow. Discovered it at RAF Gutersloh.

If you like the dark bitter tasting rums, this is the best rum in the world, the source of many very funny evenings the world over.

1st introduced to Myers rum in 1962 while serving in the RAF in
Germany, it is definately the best, but has got me into trouble
on several occasions, OH!! Happy days.

Dad has discovered this rum and loves it. Unfortunately no one sells it in Preston Lancs. Why are we so backward here in Lancashire.

Preferred to sip Bacardi 8 years old over Myers's until a good friend served Pampero Aniversario. Talk about mellow, fellow.
