Clear, dark golden amber with burnished copper highlights.
Initial whiff of fragrant orange soap gives way to alluring aromatic mandarin zest with hint of vanilla and slight note of hot soft plastic.
Sweet slightly syrupy, zesty orange balanced by rum spirit structure with clove and black pepper spice. This very complex liqueur is far from cloying.
Clove and black pepper spice continues throughout the long zesty orange squash finish.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
