Nose
? Very orangey. And sweet. Obviously a whisky liqueur. Seville orange, touch of cinchona. Some honey.
Palate
?Sweet but without excess. The same bitter orange profile. Quite sweet though.
Finish
?Sweet with a bitter tang as well.
Comment
?A pleasant Cointreau-like liqueur. I would drink it on crushed ice or use it in a canard à l'orange sauce.

Nose
Sweet at first, oh so sweet. Caramelised oranges, melted demerara sugar, honeycomb, cinder toffee with a milk chocolate coating.
Palate
?The sweetness takes a back seat, but still definately driving, to manuka honey and rich well stewed blood orange marmalade as well.
Finish
?Lingering with that cooked orange tang.
Comment
?A nice balance between sweet Bourbony notes and full on runny honey. Could be fun as a cocktail ingredient too.
