Review Detail

 
Jade Terminus
Traditional Absinthe
I'm very glad I finally got to try this absinthe, as it seems something of a new direction from Jade. The color is an attractive olive green, which after water becomes a thick, yellowish jade. However, the aroma and flavor are really quite extraordinary. Before water, the scent is intense and bracing, even somewhat medicinal. After water, it mellows just a bit, but the flavor and finish are both intense, herbal, and hot. It reminds me a bit of the old VdF, though it is definitely a more refined product.

It doesn't quite unseat 1901 as my favorite absinthe, but Terminus is now firmly in second position. Excellent product.

If this is the end, it's worth it!
