Question about aging absinthe...

Recommended Posts

Absolutely! I'm really looking forward to the Ike after everything I've heard about it... all of them, really. We could do the tasting at my place. Bring the wife, and I'll cook you guys dinner.

On opening old bottles of absinthe: maybe the method of the hot iron (don't know if it has a proper expression in english) could work. It's a kind of iron pliers that you warm in the fire, then place them tightly around the neck of the bottle and with the swift blow of a kind of hammer the neck brakes evenly . It's the method used to open bottles of Port Wine sometimes 200 and more year old. I'm sure that in specialized sites related to wine there are pictures of that method, and you could always pay for a sommelier or wine specialist to open the absinthe bottle for you using that method, it's definitely worth the bother and the money.

I'm curious, does it "age" once it's been bottled? In other words, does it change character if stored for a long period?

Bit of a debate on this in another place.

It depends on the absinthe.

 

Some can change rather dramatically over a relatively short period of time, while others remain relatively stable, even after a number of years in the bottle.

What the clown said.

"Officially" absinthe (or any bottled liquor) doesn't age according to our experts at the federal level. I disagree.

Just think of how much change could have occurred in a bottle if it had aged the 8 years that this thread lay dormant!
