Teeda / Japanese Rum / Okinawa, Japan / 750mL
"Light gold color. Minerally aromas of sweet plantain, hot copper, panela, tonka bean, and elotes with a slightly chewy, crisp, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a warming, complex, medium-long toasted mango muffin, mango-infused caramel, pineapple smoothie, and lychee finish. A distinctive, chewy rum with pervasive notes of dried mango; memorable daiquiri riffs incoming."
Tadashi Matsuda, the founder, established Helios Distillery in 1961. He started with making Rum, made of sugar cane that has been Okinawa’s main crop.
