This absinthe is based on a wine spirit that was distilled in 2013 and stored in oak barrels since then. The whole batch of Justifiée & Ancienne has been aged together in a single barrel.

Justifiée & Ancienne is not a rebranded Absinthe L'Ancienne, even though there are some similarities: the same wine spirit, selected herbs and the aging in a barrel. However, Martin used more herbs in the recipe for Justifiée & Ancienne.

The name Justifée & Ancienne is a homage to the band The KLF, British house and rave pioneers. The group was originally known as The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu, and in 1991 they released the song Justified and Ancient, featuring country singer Tammy Wynette, and with what has to be one of the most insanely memorable music videos of all time.

A beautiful melange of old and new
Overall rating
Flavor / Mouthfeel
Appearance: a beautiful golden hue, indicative of a well-aged absinthe

Louche: wonderfully opalescent and well formed. Hues of yellow, green, and white.

Aroma: herbacious and refreshing. Lots of wormwood and other alpine herbs along with the requisite anise that plays as a supporting character.

Flavor/Mouthfeel: creamy and decadent mouthfeel with well-balanced flavors of wormwood and anise. Very well balanced between sweetness and dryness. Even without sugar, there is no underlying bitterness. Juicy.

Finish: slight astringence and a very long lasting finish begging you to take another drink

Overall: There are less 'old books and leather' aromas and flavors than what I'd expect from an absinthe that is supposed to be inspired by the flavors of pre-ban absinthe, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. This absinthe takes on an 'old' profile, while still staying lively and floral. A tremendous absinthe. Highly recommended.

Disclosure: I bought this bottle.
