Jade Esprit Edouard Absinthe (700ml)

Saumur, Loire Valley, FRANCE
$199.00 Bottle
  • ABV 72%

This is the first absinthe that Jade painstakingly reverse engineered from sealed antique bottles of the original spirit. It's story is rooted in the late 19th century, at the time when one of the world's most prestigious absinthe distilleries was at the zenith of its existence. This distillery crafted products that were the subject of widespread acclaim and international export. At the time of the ban, this distillery had earned the distinction as one of the largest absinthe producers and was considered by many absinthe connoisseurs to be one of the finest marques.

Almost a century later, perfectly preserved bottles of this pre-ban absinthe have yielded the secrets of its producer. Not since the original French and Swiss bans has the world seen a French absinthe that boasts the quality of this original - a fabulously faithful reproduction, absolutely correct to the original, from its delicate tint, to its refined texture and delightfully aromatic finish.

Tasting note: Eye catching pale lime green. Bouquet is at first shy yet fascinating with its intrigueing amalgam of citrus peel, cut grass and chamomile tea. Second pass adds fennel and sweet oregano to the aromatic complexity. Concentrated, dry, piney, anise burst follows through to a vibrant, sappy, mildly bittersweet, green wood and more keenly drying finish with hints of tumeric and liquorice into the prolonged fade. Outstanding. 72% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... The first absinthe created by American absinthe expert, Ted Breaux and Combier to replicate an original sample of 19th century. Prior to the ban in the early 1900s, Esprit Edouard was one of the leading brands of absinthe. Appearance: Clear, deep greeny gold. With water louches cloudy milky yellow green. Oils cling to surface resisting integration with water during louche. Aroma: Citrussy, anise, fennel and génépi with note of carbolic soap, faint barkyness with uncooked cut cabbage and coriander leaf. Taste: Wormwood, fennel and anise - clean and direct with well integrated flavours of cumin and coriander seed. Aftertaste: Fades with anise. Long cleaning finish. Clean direct flavours make perfect for cocktail use. 5 Stars. Outstanding. - www.diffordsguide.com
