Myers’s is a Jamaican dark rum brand that was founded in 1879 by Fred L Myers. The dark rum is produced using pure Jamaican molasses in traditional pot-stills that contribute the rum’s intense flavours. To obtain its darker than normal colour, the molasses used during the initial production is added back into the distilled product, creating a unique colour Myers' rum is known for having.
While there is no age statement on Myers’s rums, up to nine different rums are blended to create its signature taste. Myers’s rums have an intense aroma that has a strong scent of molasses, followed by apples and butter toffee. Due to the dominant taste of molasses in Myers’s rums, the rums can be very sweet, although the alcohol adds a fiery burn to the drink if you choose to sip it alone. Hence, Myers’s rums should be added to cocktails or mixed with soda, especially if you have not drunk rum before. Brave souls in Singapore that wish to try authentic Jamaican rum by itself should consider buying a bottle of Myers’s rums.
