Grand Marnier Triple Sec Liqueur (700ml)
Tasting notes: The brilliant deep polished brass colour is impressive in the glass. Superb purity in the opening sniffs featuring lifted mandarin / mixed peel freshness over heavier scents of orange cake and vanilla. A light satiny entry builds to a semi-sweet concentrate of citrus peel and mandarin with a lively spirit backbone, concluding fresh, mildly tart and vibrant with the honeyed citrus flavours persisting. Expertly balanced. Classic. 40% Alc./Vol.Other reviews... 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.
