Medium amber tinged with copper.
Candied orange scents subtly fused with hints of spice.

Ultimate Beverage Challenge 98 points - (UB Collection,Chairman’s Trophy)- Gorgeous orange/copper hue. Seductive fragrance of fresh orange peel is totally delightful and beguiling, but it’s the foundational flavor of XO cognac that gives wings to the orange. Flavor echoes the bouquet perfectly as the orange peel zestiness is matched and supported by the supple spirit base. A masterpiece of the top ranking. (Mar 2015)
Wine Enthusiast 96 points - 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. (Jun 2006)
Launched in 1927 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the House of Grand Marnier®, this rare blend is the perfect balance between essence of tropical oranges and rare French cognacs mainly from the two most prestigious production areas in the Cognac region: Petite and Grande Champagne.
