Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - 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 Trophy (Apr 2014)
Wine Enthusiast 96 points - A 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.

Cointreau is a clear, mildly bitter, orange liqueur, flavored with the peel of sour and sweet oranges from Curacao and Spain. It is considered to be a high quality Triple Sec.
