Great in most respects

The deep olive color appears a bit inappropriate. The louche is very slow in developing, and does eventually reach a three tiered effect, though briefly. Very appealing and inviting aroma...

A most enjoyable verte

Very good clear green color. Louche is a bit slow developing and did not retain the layering for very long and appeared a bit thin. Great minty aroma, most inviting....

My first Jade, and best absinthe yet

Clear peridot color. Louche develops nicely with some golden opalescence as it progresses. Aroma is balanced, fresh and clean. Not overpowering in any way. Flavor is delectable, balanced and complex,...

A pleasant surprise

Clear, bright green color. The louche takes some time to develop, appears it may end thin, but develops well producing hints of gold, green, and blue throughout. Aroma is fresh...
