Review: Strictly speaking this liqueur is made from tangerines (which I suppose is a type of mandarin). The bouquet has a depth that only a strong liqueur can possess - it is intense, citrusy, unctuous and justs coats the mouth with a bitter sweet orangy taste. A classic after dinner drink. Have a sister glass of Remy Martin to hand.

Review: I first discovered this fantastic drink on a ferry when on a fishing trip to France. It was on special offer so I purchased a bottle as a tipple for the cold evenings that we expected as it was only early march. I have never been much of a spirit drinker but I always had a couple of normal brandies when fishing as it used to help me sleep. On the first evening I opened the bottle and poured myself a glass. Wow I could not believe how good it tasted. it tasted just like a good brandy should except the hint of mandarin gave it a extra smooth taste and was very very moreish. But then I made a big mistake I offered a glass to my fishing buddies who like me found it a very very nice drink and within a couple of hours the bottle was empty and to make matters worse, on the way home we travelled with sea France which did not sell this very special brandy. But after some searching on the internet I managed to find it for sale at the drink shop YUM YUM.

Review: This is one of the world's best kept secrets and one of the best liqueurs available. It is a smooth drink with a great genuine mandarin flavour. Then it also has the slightly spirity warm cognac undertone. It should be more widely available and is a great alternative to Grand Marnier which has a similar structure (also being a citrus liqueur with cognac).

Review: A local store had this on offer so I couldn't resist to try something new, something I hadn't seen before. It smelled incredibly fresh and fruit, but alas, the taste wasn't anything like it. I've noticed it's a love it or hate it type of drink.

Review: People probably do not know what their missing. I only discovered the drink because the bar I was at did not have apricot brandy. Not easily sourced/stocked at many off licenses. A delightful orangey taste - leave the mixers alone it is wonderful on its own.
