Is it all it's crapped up to be? Nevermind, just now read the thread with your initial impressions.

JL1901. A bit corky. I'm not laughing. Despite my attempts to filter out the cork when I transferred the booze to a ridge bottle, 3 small bits showed up on my glass. For pricey booze, those brittle corks are a sad joke. Others use corks, too, but neither the 2008 vintage NO, nor the 2011 L'Ancienne, where this much trouble. I tried using many of the tricks from the Trouble with Jade thread, but the cork was just way too brittle. From now on, I'm just pushing them in.

 

The booze itself is still the same old good 1901, with a big improvement in neat appearance. I'd like to thank my benefactor that let me tried this great absinthe, it really is a good absinthe, with a profile that I like. Not in the same league as the Pontarlier I had Thursday, but very good.

Wow you got a bug up your ass, I thought pirates were adventurous.

If it's anything like the 2010 bottling, no thanks. Tis the least of my favorite Jades.

 

That said, I'm drinking a glass of it myself at the moment.

Around that time (2010) there seems to have been a QA issue at Combier. Both late 2011 editions of 1901 and Lucid no longer had the issues they had earlier.
