Strange. The color today was the normal one as described by Asomphe. The light? Anywhoo, the aroma, louche, flavor, & finish were awesome as usual.

Over the weekend I was afforded an opportunity to sample the latest version of the Pacifique. Indeed, a very, very different product from the 2009 bottles I purchased. To me, the nose is very similar to VP, but the taste is quite a bit different. Compared to the 2009 version this new batch has a much more substantial mouth feel (thicker, creamier) and a very long, satisfying wormwood finish. There is quite a bit more complexity and interest in this one too -- though I'm at a loss to really identify the components or describe them. Overall, it's bigger, bolder, but still very approachable for even a first time taster -- easily recommendable -- very enjoyable.

Ok, I have to say it. Your imaginative screen name makes me think of Cookie Monster, but with green fur, and drinking louched up absinthe the way he eats cookies. :cheerz:

It's a beautiful bottle. I tried a sample a few months ago and liked it quite a bit. I'm looking forward to revisiting it tonight. :cheers:

 

Assuming you have any sample bottles on hand. :paperbag3:

 

 

I do, but they're kind of small. :pirate:

Very nice article. I found this segment hilarious:

 

'...it wasn’t until he tasted a 100-year-old bottle that he finally got it. “It was wonderful,” Bernhard said.'

 

I'm assuming that's the abbreviated version of the description of how good pre-ban is. :laugh:

Ladies and Gentlemen...Pacifique is now available for your local Oregon (OLCC) liquor store. If it's not in stock, ask them to order it from the warehouse. #7473B. New lower price for Oregonians too.

Now back to your regular programming.
