***** Highest Recommendation, F.Paul Pacult (Spirit Journal): "Clear as mineral water; pure and viscous. The perfume of orange pulp is delicate, alluring, and tart in the first two minutes of sniffing; after aeration the aroma turns much more dry peel-like; meaning oily and focused; fabulous, elegant, sophisticated bouquet. The palate entry is intensely orange peel-like, yet more sweet than bittersweet; the midpalate stage is deeply orangey, brisk and crisp, sweet and sublimely juicy. Finishes ideally citrusy/tart/astringent, then turns lithe and sweet.The benchmark of all orange flavored liqueurs/triple secs. None better. State of the art, period. After tasting a whole slew of competing triple sec/orange liqueurs over the last decade, it is abundantly clear as which brand is the gold standard. And I'm not even broaching the subject about using Cointreau as a necessary ingredient in margaritas."
92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This familiar workhorse liqueur is clear in the glass and offers a juicy orange flesh aroma. The sweet palate has a familiar orange flavor and finishes cleanly, with just a hint of warm spice. Alcohol 40%. (Sep 2019)"
