The bitterness overpowers the sweet, and I really do not recommend. Also, it isn't as fragrant in terms of potency as the A Monteux... Sad.
HORRIBLE. please do NOT buy this orange flower water in the blue bottle from france. it is NOT the MONTEUX. the bitter notes WAAAAAAY outdo the sweet ones. horrible. dumped down the drain. I let others smell it and they thought the same thing, so it was NOT just me.
UPDATE: i tried the cortas brand, and it is MUCH better...... from Lebanon. Do yourself a favor and don't waste this money. The cortas, although not the Monteux, is MUCH sweeter than this bitter pill. YUCK
This one is definitely not as good. In general it isn't as rich and wonderful and nuanced. It also has a bitter flavor, which I suspect is because it was made from bitter orange blossoms. Depending on your tastes (and what you are making) you might like this. Orange water can legitimately be made more or less bitter, depending on the country and the purpose it is being used for.
Given that this product is advertised as coming from the bitter orange, I'm not taking off a star for the bitterness...just for the the overall flavor. The orange water I like best is smoother with a more intense orange flavor. The closest version I've found so far to the original Reese's that was so delicious is Essential Pantry Orange Blossom Water from chefshop.com, not on Amazon as of this writing. This version is also less bitter, which I prefer for most applications I currently use (lemonade, sweet almond drinks, cucumber and other salads, tagines) but I may find a recipe where the bitter is better.
Another issue I have, and for which I took off another star, is that it has potassium sorbate as a preservative. Label says "potassium sorbate (0.1%) as preservative." This is a common food preservative and "generally recognized as safe." However I try to ingest as few chemicals as possible, and I wonder if this preservative is part of the reason I don't find this water as tasty and smooth on the tongue.
In any case, to be fair, it's likely that many foreign imports have preservatives added and simply don't add it to the label. My fave (Essential Pantry) is imported from Morocco and does not list a preservative...but who knows...Read more ›
I use it to give an extra spark of flavor to sweet crepes, grogs, cocktails... try it too!
