Gustave 72% / Gustave Barrel-Aged (Paul Devoille absinthe)

Recommended Posts

I ran across a Paul Devoille absinthe I've never seen before called Absinthe Gustave 72% -- both a regular and a barrel-aged version. There's not a review page for either on this site yet, so I was wondering if anyone has tried them and has any thoughts. One reason I'm interested in the absinthe is the claim in a couple of reviews that it somewhat resembles pre-ban in style. (It's based off a late 18th Century recipe.)

 

I grabbed a bottle of the oak-aged so I'll report back after I've had a chance to try it.

 

Thanks, and cheers! :cheers:

 

Edit: I just saw a post about Absinthe Gustave on TWS Facebook discussion group, looks like I should check that more often!

I have a bottle of Gustave 72%, haven't opened it yet, waiting for an occasion! Didnt want the barrel aged, sounded to much like whiskey.

I hear you -- I'm wary of barrel-aged stuff in general because it often imparts too much wood/vanilla flavor for my taste. However, I enjoyed Roquette 1797 Barrel Aged so much that I decided to take the chance on the Gustave (despite them being from different distilleries.)
