Bright topaz with gold and amber tints
Complex nose of orange flowers combined with scents of candied zests and toffee.
Bitter orange flavours are enhanced by the cognac with nuances of orange marmalade and hazelnuts. The finish is long and harmonious.
Wine Enthusiast 93 points - Light amber color. A blend of oranges, clementines and tangerines create an alluring citrus aroma. Warmly spiced on the palate, deeply concentrated orange flavor includes a slight bitterness that balanced the sweetness in the mouth.
The aroma is a sweet/sour, tangerine/Mandarin orange perfume that never stops enchanting. At the palate entry the orange zest’s acidity mingles gracefully with the Cognac’s alcohol, making for delicious drinking. Satiny finish.
Although it's Cognac-based, it's a versatile match for other spirits, too. The liqueur is extremely aromatic, with lots of sweet and bitter orange notes exploding out of the glass. Look for a warm, honeyed flavor and nice burst of orange peel and spicy cinnamon and ginger on the long finish.
