Review: In the glass, at first glance this looks just like our old friend Baileys, and a sniff appears to back that up, though it seems perhaps a touch more delicate. However, Wild Africa is lighter. The best way I can describe the taste is as being like an alcoholic version of the toffee sauce you get swirled through ice cream, but in drinkable form. The flavour has a tendency to separate from the burn of the alcohol, but I find that that\'s a problem common with cream liqueurs, and not a very large one. If Baileys is slightly reminiscent of chocolate, and goes well with milk chocolate in desserts, I would pair this with dark to offset its sweetness (I\'m not a big drinker and stick at least some of most of my bottles in cheesecake). Not just another cream liqueur; very pretty. Keep a tissue handy to wipe the rim after pouring though; you don\'t want it gumming up its fetching fur coat.
