My bottle is labelled V.S. 1898, but the Jade website seems to be calling it C.F. Berger, and it presumably was the old Jade Verte Suisse. Well, whatever, it is good absinthe.

Before water, it does not appear remarkable: the color is a dull peridot, which improves with the louche to present a nice grayish jade color. Before water, the aroma is arresting and bracingly herbal. This mellows with the louche to a fresh, herbal scent that is very pleasing. The flavor is bold and spicy, but thankfully not too peppery, and the absinthe has a seemingly endless herbal finish.

High marks for this brand.

A Jade by any other name...
