The Elixir of the land of the fairies is one of my favorite blanches and has its place in any Absinthe rotation.



While not complex or remarkable in terms of basic herbs like the Blanchette, it is quirky in a very pleasant sort of way. I think that EdPdF tastes like frosting in a glass. It is very sweet even without sugar but when one drips through a cube, hang on to your teeth. I think it makes a perfect second or third glass since a more complex drink won't alter its flavor. I think it may be a bit too anise heavy to use as a "palate cleanser" between more complex Absinthes.
