Jade Absinthe Nouvelle-Orléans presents the connoisseur with a perfume and texture that disappeared along with the artisanal marques almost a century ago. Several medicinal plants and flowers, including wormwood are macerated in a wine-based alcohol and then distilled in 100 year old alambics. Its light green colour comes from a second infusion of plants in the resulting distillate. Its aromas are bright yet complex and savory; it is a true apéritif, one that stimulates the appetite while cleansing and refreshing the palate with its crisp, rich taste. The finish is long and fresh, with its attractive floral components lingering long after the last sip.

In warm weather the pressure of alcohol vapour may cause the cork to rise in the bottle and crack the wax seal. This in no way harms the contents of the bottle.
The flower of Jade. I have already tasted PF and VS,but this one is prominent.
Its complex aroma is not soapy but flowery.
Slightly sweeter than major traditional Verte,like PF of Jade, Duplais, Perroquet, and so on,
but anise flavor is not heavy nor dominant.
Its suitable bitterness ebbs away properly.
