Confectioners Jean-Baptiste Combier and his wife created what is claimed to be the first orange liqueur of this style in 1834. Combier Triple Sec is still made using sun-dried orange skins from Saint-Raphaël, Haiti steeped in alcohol for 24 hours and distilled in 100-year-old copper-pot stills.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 17/09/2015

Appearance:

Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Superbly clean fragrant orange blossom and bitter orange zest with preserved oranges, cooked lemons and waxy notes of orange scented candle. Faint notes of brazil nut shells.

Taste:

Syrupy yet dry. Opens with zesty orange essence and quickly develops becomes drier with notes of Lady Grey tea (bergamot). A steely note runs through the mid palate turning lavender/parma violet.

Aftertaste:

Zesty orange finish with lingering note of icing sugar.

Overall:

Orange blossom and zesty orange peel with bergamot and very faint lavender/parma violet.
