Review and Tasting


Sampled on 11/04/2017

Appearance:

Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Zesty mandarin, orange marmalade and soft candy chews.

Taste:

Clean zesty and well-balanced with citric acidity balancing sweet marmalade orange notes.

Aftertaste:

Long lingering and refreshing, slightly sweet blood red orange.

Overall:

When compared to Solerno, which we’re sure many will do, Cointreau’s Blood Orange is much lighter, sweeter and 10% less in alc./vol.. So it is not a substitute, and we’ll guessing it is not trying to be. It is well-balanced and well-made with a slight candied blood red orange flavour.
