All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
A clear green that also has a bluish tinge. Not as vivid as the Edouard, it is a nice, rich color. Louche is slow and steady, a good louche, but not excellent. After water the louche has a light, green with a blue tint. Pre loache it has a interesting and different nose, almost medicinal, but with shades of spice. Louched-very similar to the pre loache except that it opens up nicely with some herbal tones and becomes more herbal. The mouth feel is pronounced but not as rich as the other Jades. Still, a nice body, more silky than velvety. The taste has a fore of fennel, and a decent helping of anise, but the wormwood is much more in the background than in the other Jades. A very unique flavor. This absinthe is well crafted, and deserves recognition for originality. Still not my favorite of the Jades. I would venture to say that it is a taste that some will enjoy and others not.

A Jade with a different background
