Great in most respects

The deep olive color appears a bit inappropriate. The louche is very slow in developing, and does eventually reach a three tiered effect, though briefly. Very appealing and inviting aroma...

Finding this more enjoyable

It's odd that when I first started on this bottle, I would have rated the flavor as a 3. I now find it quite appealing. Color is a deep green,...

A most enjoyable verte

Very good clear green color. Louche is a bit slow developing and did not retain the layering for very long and appeared a bit thin. Great minty aroma, most inviting....

My first Jade, and best absinthe yet

Clear peridot color. Louche develops nicely with some golden opalescence as it progresses. Aroma is balanced, fresh and clean. Not overpowering in any way. Flavor is delectable, balanced and complex,...

Marteau is a very good verte

Very nice clear green color. Great louche developing slowly and some time to complete. Good opalescence. Aroma shows balance with some citrus notes. Taste is balanced and very enjoyable....

A very pleasant blanche

Clear, bright and colorless. The louche develops nicely as the transparent layer slowly thins; not much opalescence. Great aroma, minty and fresh. Well balanced flavor, very refreshing with a lingering...

Something annoying here

Bright, clear red color. The louche develops very quickly and is intriguing to watch. The aroma is odd, with an antiseptic smell that put me off a bit. Get past...

A pleasant surprise

Clear, bright green color. The louche takes some time to develop, appears it may end thin, but develops well producing hints of gold, green, and blue throughout. Aroma is fresh...
