A fierce Rum surprise from India.
 
Back in 1492, Chris Columbus set off to find a new way to India. Since GPS was offline at that moment, he missed a turn and ended up in the Bahamas. Since he was a proud man, he refused to admit his mistake, so he called the area the West Indies. The place became the powerhouse of Rum production, but incredibly enough, Christopher's initial destination produces Rum as well. Gautom Menon, a native of Kerala, wasn't impressed with stories told by his family distillery, so he brought home a butt load of Rums and tested more than 500 of them. He found the perfect flavor and called it Wild Tiger Rum in 2016, creating the first premium Rum in India. He found out that sugarcane spread from ancient India to the Caribbean, and Wild Tiger owns its heritage.
 
Wild Tiger Special Reserve Rum is an aromatic Rum with notes of vanilla, almond, toffee and honey, and it comes in a plush tiger-skin bottle cover. It's aged in charred American oak ex-Bourbon barrels, and its character is refreshingly unique. The Spirit also has a cool charity twist as 10% of the profits go to the Wild Tiger Foundation that strives to protect the endangered Tigers of India.

Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’

Beth
Beth,
Loved this rum. Very smooth going down. Had great flavor while drinking. The only concern I have is that I tasted a leather aftertaste instead of the description of the after taste

Margaret,
Though this Tiger may be an okay liquor for mixing or some taste buds... I did not find it tasting like RUM. Lacked the deep rum flavor and had none of the coating of the tongue effect that rums usually provide. My best bet is to use it in a punch or cooking. I am thinking that it might do well when sautéing mushrooms.

a basic rum, good for coke or a make up cocktail added to a mai tai, not a sipping rum.

Stephanie,
We loved it. My husband mixed it with a pineapple soda and I mixed with Diet Coke.(coke is too sweet for me) . It was so good I wanted more. Love all the flavors and even thought it had just a hint of root beer flavor in the end.

Cody,
I was really surprised at how good this Rum is for the price. It has become my new daily drinker. Its a really nice sipping rum. Thankfully, it is not full of sugar like many other rums. Definitely worth picking up a bottle to try. It does make you think of the flavor of maple syrup without all the sugar.

Craig,
Pretty good rum, but was not as sweet as I had hoped. Seemed a bit thin with not much body, but easy sipper.

Nicholas,
This was my first taste of a rum and very pleasant it was. I usually enjoy whisky and bourbons and now look forward to trying out some more rums.

Rick,
Really enjoyed this Rum. It has notes of my favorite Maple Syrup, but is definitely not too sweet. My wife had a hard time not killing the bottle the first weekend after it arrived. A nice surprise especially for the price point. Definitely recommend it!
 
Mr
Mr,
Love this rum. Its sweet but subtle, you can taste maple syrup, vanilla and molasses. The bottle is very well presented with a fab tiger cover, a tiger claw key ring and even a little booklet in a pouch that explains all about the rum and the work the company does to save tigers. A top pick.
