If you remember the beutifully deep and vibrant colour of the early Jadedouards, that batch, that rose so many controversies at FV, will be a great disappointment. It looks exactly like strongly undercoloured Swiss les bleues turned verte at 55%, but that is 72%!

Louche is alright, exactly the one the pre-ban should produce.

If the spirit smells of glue, it means that that is high in ethyl acetate, so seems to be the case, first glue, then herbs. What has happened?

Flavour is spicy, there is wormwood in it, but the glue aftertaste and marc base have their predominant say spoiling the goodness it might offer once we go past the glueiness.

I haven't had the pleasure of tasting pre-ban Edouard, but that particular batch seems to be far, far away from what has been offered previously under that very name.

Louche: Nothing grabbed me, but it louched. It's different from the others I've tried because it didn't have that swirly cloud effect, it gradually clouded up equally throughout the glass.



Aroma: Peculiar is fitting, and the aroma matches the flavor.



Flavor: There's definitely a spiciness with a hint of mustiness to it, like an old abandoned house.



Finish: Definitely present, but unremarkable. Not sure if the batch I had was different from the one mentioned in the other thread inquiring if Ted changed the formula, but mine, dated Oct 06, has a prominent alcohol burn - which doesn't compliment the musty flavor and aroma.



Overall: Acceptable, but that rustic taste and aroma isn't for me.
