Wild Tiger Special Reserve rum is produced in India using a blend of molasses and cane juice distillates, before aging in American oakwood casks which once stored Bourbon Whiskey. 10% of Wild Tiger's profits are donated to the Wild Tiger Foundation to protect Tigers around the world.
Flawed with a glimmer of hope
This is the first Indian rum that I have tried. I was surprised to learn that they produce more rum than any other country in the world, but here the quality do not match the quantity.
Nose: Roasted wood, cocoa and vanilla.
Taste: Very, very sweet with notes of fruits and vanilla. I can´t describe the aftertaste, but it is not good.
Overall: First serious attempt from India in the world of premium rums....better luck next time.
I Just love tigers! - So what not to love when you can buy Wild Tiger Rum, and then support those fantastic loveable animals?
Enjoyed a bottle of Wild Tiger with my buddies while vacationing in Germany. Velvet covered bottle, very fancy. Harsh alcohol smell to the nose and palate. Nothing but vanilla extract on the flavor profile. Mix it, and down it goes, but just barely.
The board says that this is a Panamanian rum, when it is an Indian rum
I love the bottle and the fact that some money supposedly goes to tiger preservation.
It is cheap. In the UK about the same price as a Mount Gay Eclipse, or perhaps 5-10% more. The nose reveals what is wrong with this. Sweetness. I am presuming that it has added sugar as it is far too sweet. Having said that, it really is quite easy to drink, which after all is the most important thing. If you are in the mood for a more alcoholic and less sickly version of Baileys, then this hits the spot. I'm just not sure how often I am in that mood.
Overall, I've had far worse rums at higher prices than this. I would give this a 5½.
Color: dark amber. Texture: rather liquidity. Taste: light, mostly wood with hint of vanilla. Not a bad rum, but one definitely as tasty as good rums.
Vanila and caramel with quite strong alcohol flavour. Nothing special to be honest. Not to buy again. Defenitely not a premium level. Disappointment.
