Review Detail

 
Jade Nouvelle-Orléans
Traditional Absinthe
This is a very unique offering from the Jade line. It's almost a love it or hate it kind of thing, like Montmartre.

The color is a deep forest green color with no visible sediment or murkiness.

The louche seems a bit pale and slow forming, which ends up being a bit too thin. Mostly opaque but no opalescence.

The aroma has hints of allspice again. It really reminds me of almost a Christmas-y type of smell. Rather intriguing and VERY enjoyable.

The taste is very clean and crisp with a nice wormwood finish. However, I can't put my finger on it, but there is something almost briny hiding back there somewhere, like what you might get hints of in a coastal Scotch. I still get the holiday vibe from the flavor as well.



Overall, an extremely interesting and complex absinthe. It's unique, which will attract some people, and put off some others. It's still a very enjoyable drink.
