The proprietor at East Ruston Old Vicarage swears by Grand Marnier as being the best Good Do'er, and a chum of mine has it at the top of his Good Do'er list. So if you buy one that on is worth consideration Others on his Good Do'er list are Charles Grimaldi, Sunset/Maya, Rozenquartz, Langenbuscher Garten, Mobisu, Arborea, Goldflame, Super Rose, Berkongigin (sp?? Bergkonigin perhaps?) and Schlossburg

grand marnier appears quite white, which of the above has the best orange hue?

Google images is really confusing as they show so much contradiction? icon_scratch

I agree, it does look white in some photos, but the only ones I have seen (in the flesh) have been a nice orange colour. I read that it is badly labelled and thus variable as a result.

I think part of the problem with Google Images is that sometimes it wrongly associates an image with some text elsewhere on the page
