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
The initial flavour hit isn’t great, strong sour and with grassy hints. Only a little spice. It gets better after a few seconds with a maple syrup tinge, but the long finish doesn’t linger well. Maybe a few added ingredients make it interesting, but certainly not on my top shelf. Does mix well with coke which brings some vanilla out.
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.
Pas un rhum de dégustation, intéressant à goûter mais je vais le boire avec un coke ou en ti punch. Au moins on boit pour une bonne cause. Vive les tigres.
smells very very sweet but crisp and slightly citrusy.
Very very nice neat, it’s not overpowering it’s simple and elegant. It’s refreshing. Definitely not spiced just a nice simple rum, a consistent flavour from start to finish. I would absolutely drink again. It’s made very very well.
