Cordon Jaune, literally ‘yellow ribbon’, Grand Marnier is only sold in a few European countries. Yellow Label Grand Marnier is packaged in the familiar Grand Marnier pot still-shaped bottle but finished with yellow highlights to the label, along with yellow ribbon and wax seal.
It is based on neutral alcohol without the addition of Cognac so this could be regarded as a Grand Marnier triple sec. This was actually the original 'Marnier' orange liqueur to which Louis-Alexandre added cognac to create what we now know as Grand Marnier.

Review and Tasting

Appearance:

Crystal clear. (Old bottlings are pale straw yellow.)

Aroma:

Clean, fresh, zesty orange.

Taste:

Slightly syrupy zesty orange with a splash of freshly squeezed orange juice and a touch of spice.

Aftertaste:

Zesty orange finish prevented from becoming cloying by a fresh peppery spice.
