So a fellow recently posted on a Facebook absinthe group about tasting a sample of a new absinthe from the Zufanek distillery called: "Justifiée & Ancienne". Of course seeing the inclusion of the word "Ancienne" on a new offering about to be released from the Zufanek distillery made me shoot up in my seat. The fellow posting about it, Scott MacDonald, had this to say about it: "I am having a sample of Martin's new absinthe Justifiée & Ancienne. It is so great. It has a softness and roundness, while still capturing the spirit of vintage, without any sharp edges or harshness. It is a lovely caramel color, and my favorite absinthe from him to date. Masterful." It looks like we have a successor to La Ancienne, although this one is crafted by Martin and not Stefano. The tasting notes could be straight from a review of La Ancienne, down to the color. Scott did remark that it was not La Ancienne per se. Another fellow who also tried a sample said that "It is a nice marriage of Antoine and Ancienne " There are obvious politics here and I definitely had my own reaction, but that aside I do have to say that I am excited to try it now that La Ancienne is no longer being released.

I see that there's an http://www.zufanek.cz/en/products/mead-base-absinthe'>absinthe by Zufanek made with a honey alcohol base (i.e. distilled mead), called "Mead Base". Sounds extremely interesting in my opinion. I mean, why not? There's absinthe based on alcohol from wine, so why not one based on alcohol from "honey wine"? I've never tried any of Zufanek's absinthes, but I know they're good at making them, so this one could be good as well. REVIEW PAGE UP
