Review and Tasting

Sampled on 07/07/2015

Appearance

Clear, topaz colour with gold and amber tones.

Aroma

Zesty orange with light spice, dried fruit, leathery cognac and subtle floral violet.

Taste

Silky palate bursts with zesty, juicy flavours and a bitter orange bite. Hints of luxury marmalade, cognac, candied orange zest, coffee, vanilla and subtle toffee notes.

Aftertaste

Wonderfully long bitter orange marmalade and freshly cracked black pepper finish.

Overall

Luxurious zesty bitter orange with rich honeyed mouthfeel. An almost regal liqueur.
