I had a sample of this a few days ago and my thoughts are very similar to Brian's review. A great blanche with a little something extra!

Agreed. I've tried it twice and it is an exceptional blanche. Thumbs up.

Of blanches I've only had Blanchette (from Combier), Kübler (that I consider a blanche) and one single glass of Absente before. But compared to them I'd say that Neige is outstanding. There's certainly "more" to it than is the case with Blanchette and Kübler, and definately compared to Absente.

Top five brands so far:

Libertine 72 - for the low price and because it can be diluted really well | Jade (PF) 1901 - this is a winner but also quite an expensive brand (can also be well diluted though) | Duplais Balance - very tasty indeed and for quite a time my favourite | Mansinthe - which I find a little bit more "spicy" than others, but with no downsides | Valkyria - perhaps a tad too much star anise, but.. because I'm Swedish ;-)

Absente ain't a Blanche though. :)

Well, Brian. I might be mistaking about that one. Either about the brand or about the color. (If there isn't any clear/uncolored Absente?)

This is really a great blanche.  It's a classic Swiss la bleue, but with a gracefully assertive personality, yet it does this without changing its la bleue character, which is nice.

The aroma and finish are outstanding.  I'd rank it among the best 2 or 3 commercial Swiss blanches out there, in a sea of so-so la bleues.
