Grand Marnier Tasting Notes |
A special edition of Grand Marnier celebrating the 100th anniversary of the creation of the company by founder Jean-Baptiste Lapostolle. This special cuvee was created in 1927. A smooth and elegant blend of cognacs, primarily Fine Champagne, aged up to 25 years, distilled essence of wild tropical oranges and the "Marnier secret". The liqueur will acquire its full finess and roundness after a minimum ageing of 2 years in oak vats. Medium amber with copper-colored core. Candied orange scents sublty fused with hints of spice. Notes of dried fruit, gingerbread, and nutmeg. Lovely lingering finish on nuances of macerated orange.

The palate is balanced between the citric acid, alcohol, Cognac and wood, with the Cognac always prevailing. Concludes with finesse, a sweet-sour presence, and an incredibly lush texture.
