Absinthe Gustave Barrel Aged 72% - 70cl
Alternative sizes: Content: 50ml,
Absinthe Gustave is back, and even more refined than before.
This version of Gustave has had its ageing finished in an oak barrel. The aim was not to make an intensely oaked spirit like cognac or whisky, but merely to provide a finishing touch, to round off the complex aromas and bring another dimension to the whole. The oak aged version is even smoother than the normal Gustave.
Read here about the standard version of Gustave for more background information and the herbs used.
The barrel aged edition of Gustave is bottled at 72% alcohol by volume, like very finest vintage absinthe.
A caramel colour in the glass. The aroma is already enticing. On adding water, the louche is thick. The colour is a beautiful milky green tinted caramel.
On the nose come fennel, wormwood and an earthy note, rounded off by notes of vanilla, wood and something fruity which works well with the anise.
The flavour is at once sweet and gently bitter. Delicious.
The finish is rounded and smooth.
