ABV: 40%

Produced since 1879, the name 'Myers' is recognised as one of the better values in full-bodied rum. Sienna Brown colour with gold ochre hue. Lovely fresh scents of peppermint candy, golden syrup and fresh liquorice strap follow in medium weight, off dry flavours of sarsaparilla, cocoa, tobacco, anise and liquorice allsorts. Solid balance and length. An all rounder with enough character to enjoy on its own. 40% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... The initial inhalations expose a moderately spicy, black peppercorn perfume; aeration brings about flax, cooked vegetables, and brown sugar. The platform flavor is intensely cocoa-like, then at midpalate, the taste leaps into deeper cocoa/bittersweet chocolate territory before turning lean and keenly bittersweet, oily and chocolaty in the finish. 87 points -

Myers’s & Tonic: A good long drink. To a measure of Myers’s add a few drops of lemon juice and fill up with tonic water. Float a lemon slice.

Myers’s Punch: 3 parts Myers’s. 1 part lemon Juice. 2 teaspoons of sugar syrup per glass. A dash of bitters per glass. Shake well and garnish with a slice of orange and a sprig of mint.

Myers’s Pina Colada: In a blender, combine 1 part Myers’s Rum, 1 part cream of coconut (from can), 2 parts unsweetened pineapple juice. ½ cup crushed ice. Blend at low speed. Pour into goblet. Garnish with pineapple stick and cherry.
