Depending on how it was aged there could be other sources of notes and flavors as well. I know that it spent 18 months maturing before bottling, but I don't know in what (barrels, steel tanks, who knows what?).

I think he may have gone a little heavy with that one.
Nice Bauble!
Thanks for the smile. :cheers:

Yup. That's a big ladle on the table there, I think he used that instead of the shaker.

Apparently vibrations along the jumper (piece of pipeline coming down from top of video) caused the chacalote to use it as a pleasure 'device'. The connector was damaged and needed repairs. Can't recall if warranty work was invovled. :)

Received my bottle in the mail today after a very long trip from France. All I can say is worth every penny and every second it took to get here. :thumbup:

Amen to that, I will be saving enough for two bottles for next summer's release, if they make one. Of the dozen or so fancy absinthes I've sampled thanks to kind benefactors, sneaking into tastings, or just buying the stuff, I have to say the Sauvage stands out as a best match to my taste buds.

My Sauvage arrived yesterday along with my second bottle of BDJ :cheers: ! I have been nipping the BDJ but have yet to open the Sauvage. I think I'll wait for the right moment-whenever or whatever that might be.

I've tried a bit of the Sauvage (sp?) and I enjoyed what I tried.

I ike the Roquette also.

These are drinks that make me smile.......when I'm in the mood. :devil:

I think they are still for sale. It is worth it, I just have to use it for special occasions, since it is a wallet drainer.

Thanks to a friend :wave2: , I was finally able to taste Sauvage last night. People that know me, know my love of wormwood Bombs and this one doesn't disappoint. I loves me some wild wormwood flavor!

Ditto!

And no matter how comparable the flavor might be, I know it won't louche like The Bomb.

It is awesomeness. Noobs and experienced both love it.

Keep a tastebud on the lookout for tangerines. I smell them and taste them. Tangerine-cello with a ton of tasty wild wormwood?

I keep reading good things about it. The "wild" part makes me re-think the $$$.

For some reason, I keep having all these weird ideas about pre-ban absinthe that used cultivated wormwood and it's still pretty dang tasty. It's just me, I'm sure.

Tough call on wild vs cultivated. I'm sure they are very selective on their herb choices. Some of the herbs we wildcraft are wonderful but less than 50' away are herbs of terrible quality. The herbs we grow can be nurtured and harvested at the best possible moment but after trekking miles into the back country, it's a temptation to take as much as possible regardless of the condition.

I'm particularly excited about the herbs being found far from highways and road pollution. That's the only way to do it! :thumbup:

I'm not tasting it quite yet, but my "sample" that an old forum buddy sent me, just arrived.

Um, that is, it was supposed to be a nice double sized sample, but it turned out to be a sealed bottle!!! :shock:

I told him that he was out of his damned mind, thanked him profusely, and promised him a bottle from the next (hopeful) distillation of L'Ancienne.

Now, to louche up a glass...
