Helios Rum

The Schtick: “It is a dry column using 100% sugar cane in Okinawa. + Characterized by taste and rich flavor of the sugar cane. + HELIOS distillery using sugar cane in Okinawa in 1961 + From the rum-making began. + This is Matsuda Tadashi, the founder’s “wine in the land sourced is made from crops” + Principle and is the starting point. + “Heliosram” is a wine exactly the origin of the Helios distillery said.” For maximum authenticity, I took the Japanese and translated it to English using Google, so here we are.

Review #1154 | Rum Review #70

Distiller: Helios

Bottler: Helios

Brand: Helios


ABV: 40% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Sweet, musty, tomatoes, overripe fruits. Really really really sweet in a rotting fruit way without that big ester punch. Really weird. Light vinegar.

Taste: Thin to medium. Really strange. Sweet and earthy, musty and funky. VInegar, tomatoes, banana, odd oerfume note I cant put my finger on.

Finish: Short, sweet and funky. Oddly fruity again in a way I can’t descripbe

Overall: This is super weird and interesting but it’s not for me. It’s so sweet and pungent in a non estery way that leaves me with the strangest impression.

Thanks for reading!
