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

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...

Different

I like that it's light on the anise flavor, even if it's unusual. I think most absinthes have too much anise/fennel etc. Smooth inoffensive (slightly medical? eugenol?(I know, spelling)) flavor....

Bare essence

Appearance- Well, it's clear. Louche- Pretty good louche. Not *too* opaque and definitely not thin. Nice and cloudy. Aroma- Pretty strong anise. The anise is the main thing...

Basic gin + Basic Blanche

Probably my measuring stick absinthe

Appearance- A nice, light, slightly yellowish green. Louche- Thick louche, can't see through the glass. As it louches it's a good display. Aroma- Very...

Bland and uninspiring

Appearance: a warm forest green color but apparently the best quality mentionable. Louche: hardly present at all but makes a fair effort at best. Many other even modestly decent...

Incredible food, absinthe service is lacking

The food last night was unbelievable. I still can't get over how good the bread was. My only complaint would be the absinthe service. If...

The Kurt Russell of absinthes

Beautiful peridot color pre-louche. It turns a thick olive color when water is added -- each drop of water sends white-ish plumes down into the absinthe, like the fog on...

The most purely "herbal" absinthe I've tasted

Although this absinthe is listed under "retired brands," I purchased mine in November 2016 -- it's being sold in the tall, slim bottles. The color pre-louche is...

The most austere of the Jades

Nice and clear, somewhere between golden-yellow and peridot. The louche looks thick and milky -- every drop of water releases a miniature bloom upon breaking the surface of the absinthe....

My favorite of the Jades

A natural clear forest-green with hints of yellow. The louche is thick and "milky" but not one-dimensional at all, with blue highlights on the rim. The aroma...

Unmistakably high quality

Pre-louche, this is a beautiful delicate shade of lime-green peridot. It takes on a soapstone-like color as water is added. This is a unique absinthe, with darker-toned...

Very good

Pre-louche, the absinthe is a transparent light green, leaning toward golden-brown. The louche is thick and milky, with transparency near the edges at a 1/4 absinthe-water ratio. ...

Roquette in my Poquette

This is one of my favorite absinthes. It has a very different nose and flavor from many anise-heavy (if not anise-overloaded) absinthes of modern manufacture. Upon opening the bottle, the...
