The final cog in the Jade wheel.  A faithful homage to one of the more popular oxygenated absinthes of the Belle Epoque.

Editor reviews

Appearance: An attractive, light peridot green. No visible sediment.

Louche: Almost fully louched at 1:1. Lots of fairies dancing in the glass from the very beginning. Greens, yellows and whites all swirling around. Gorgeous.

Aroma: Wonderfully balanced and room filling. A great balance of herbaceousness and sweetness.

Flavor: Sweet anise and spicy minty wormwood. White pepper and confectioner's sugar. Incredibly complex with a full mouthfeel.

Finish: Lingers a very long time Spicy and warming. Supremely enjoyable.

Overall: I have heard rumblings that some bottles of this suffered from a bit of shipping shock. I am happy to say that neither of my bottles seem to be any worse for wear. If you consider yourself an absinthe connoisseur, you need to stock a bottle of this. All the time.

I'm very glad I finally got to try this absinthe, as it seems something of a new direction from Jade. The color is an attractive olive green, which after water becomes a thick, yellowish jade. However, the aroma and flavor are really quite extraordinary. Before water, the scent is intense and bracing, even somewhat medicinal. After water, it mellows just a bit, but the flavor and finish are both intense, herbal, and hot. It reminds me a bit of the old VdF, though it is definitely a more refined product.

It doesn't quite unseat 1901 as my favorite absinthe, but Terminus is now firmly in second position. Excellent product.

If this is the end, it's worth it!

Appearance: beautiful and intense peridot green.

Louche: a joy to behold, lots of green and orange in the making. At 1:5 the louche is still thick, milky, distinctely green.

Aroma: intense and well balanced, nothing missing. Very creamy.

Flavor: very complex, well balanced, the trinity is there, some spice. The flavours seem to pervade the whole mouth and nose and throat.

Finish: wormwood and spices, with some anise sweetness. Herbal notes linger long in the mouth.

Overall: my experience is too limited to add anything relevant. This is to me some kind of "ideal" absinthe among the classic ones. The louche is the best I ever observed.

The final absinthe from Jade Liquors - what a stunner!

Appearance and aroma previous to being prepared really indicates just what is in store... a gorgeous color to behold and the scent is addicting. When water is added, the absinthe louches up in all the right ways - providing a wonderful visual showcase of trails and clouds... billowing and blowing around in the glass. The flavor is equally as incredible and once the glass is empty the memory of it begs to be filled once again. Complex yet very balanced, creamy and very 'present' in the ways a great absinthe makes herself known.

Interesting how this absinthe is so similar to the other Jades but also is very distinct from them as well. The taste seems to evolve both within a single glass and over the life of the bottle. The complexity and creaminess of this absinthe is astounding - like all the Jades, this is one to keep a few bottles in stock for sure! I LOVE it.
