A clear brandy based liqueur and type of triple sec flavored from the peel of sour and sweet oranges.
Ethereal aromas of orange peel and grapefruit zest with hints of blossom comprise the nose. Fresh, mineral-driven with a zesty orange peel characteristic defined by a touch of sweetness. A wonderfully perfumed finish closes out this fantastic liqueur. Chairman’s TrophyA sophisticated orange pulp bouquet which after aeration turns much more dry peel-like. The palate entry is intensely orange peel-like yet more sweet than bittersweet; the midpalate stage is deeply orangey, sweet and sublimely juicy. Finishes ideally citrusy/tart/astringent, then turns lithe and sweet. The benchmark for all orange flavored liqueurs/triple secs. State of the art. — P.P. (10/1/2005) — 96-100
