Absinthe Enigma Verte FDC Aged in Oak Barrels 69.2% vol - 70cl

Absinthe Enigma Verte FDC Aged in Oak Barrels 69.2% vol - 70cl
This product is currently not available.
Enigma Verte FDC (fût de chêne) is made using wine alcohol and stored in oak barrels. For the storage in barrels, the Devoille distillery chose Tronçais oak barrels from the Allier Département (region) of France. In these 300 litre barrels, the absinthe ages for a very specific period of time. The exact ageing period is a closely guarded secret and is the result of many tests aiming at finding the optimal storing time. The Tronçais barrels, usually used to store Cognac or Bordeaux wines, give this absinthe a particular finish. Through ageing in oak barrels, aromas of vanilla and caramel develop. In terms of taste, wormwood and anise are in the foreground. The herbal notes are lighter and more harmonious than in the Enigma Verte. The alcohol content of 69.2% is lower than in the Absinthe Enigma Verte. This is due to the Angels' Share – the part that is lost due to evaporation during the ageing process. A creamy and complex absinthe that evokes absinthe from pre-prohibition times. Only 9 bottles available – first come, first served.

Paul Devoille, France

devoille_distillery

1859: The distillery was founded by Xavier Devoille. His son, Paul Devoille, was very dedicated to developing the distillery, and worked hard on its growth. This is why up until this day, the distillery is named after him. Paul Devoille was a very important person in Fougerolles, he held the position of the major for many years.

1986: Due to the bad financial position the distillery was in, Jaques Veillet, the new owner of the distillery, decided to sell it to an experienced business man, who already invested into a couple of other distilleries inside and outside on France. René Miscault bought the distillery, and made some rapid administrational changes. He also expanded their product range, and opened the distillery for visitors to the public. These measures may seem drastic, however, they saved the distillery in the end. Today, Hugues Miscault, the son of René Miscault, runs the distillery.

 

Paul Devoille's Absinthe:

Their probably most popular absinthes, apart from the Libertines, and the Enigma Verte and Enigma Blanche. Absinthe Soixante-Cinq is a pretty interesting absinthe as well, with a quite spicy smell combined with a fruityness from the wine-alcohol base. Certainly, there are a lot of other spirits produced at Paul Devoille, such as eau-de-vies and liqueurs. From plum to strawberry, you can find nearly all of the common flavours.
