A perfumed absinthe, powerful and full of aniseed flavours.
Ideal for an initiation to strong sensations. Read the whole description
Probably the most powerful aniseed absinthe !
- Alain Aureggio, heir of the Lemercier distillery, based himself on 65 absinthe recipe to create Abisinthe Amer 72 absinthe.
- Abisinthe Amer 72 is delivered in a dark bottle so that the sunlight does not damage its natural green colour.
- During the Belle Epoque, after Pontarlier, Fougerolles had the highest number of producers of absinthe. Sometimes some of the casks used in Fougerolles were sent to Pontarlier to cover their needs.
Lemercier distillery is a family firm founded in 1811. It has always been in the hands of the founder, Nicolas Desle Lemercier's family.
Since 1991, after having achieved commercial studies, Alain Aureggio, also member of the Lemercier family, is at the head of the family firm.
- At first, savour Abisinthe Amer 72 with a piece of sugar. Then add more or less according to your taste.
- For one measure of absinthe (3cl), add 2 to 5 measure of fresh water.

I have been trying some different absinthe and this one is a very nice and pleasing product. The bottle is well packed reducing the possibility of damage. I am glad to have found a place where the recommendations have been justified in the product taste.

I Like it!
It is a good and well balanced BITTER absinthe.
Nice louche, nice colour, good aroma and without a crazy price.
I will buy it again.

Yes thank you. The Absinthe was bought as a preasant for somebody who enjoys it and they were very, very satisfied.

A clear but pale amber, almost a blanche in colour absinthe, greets you in the glass.
Sort of odd cap and pouring mechanism for an absinthe, but it does the trick.
Before you add any water the anise takes the front in the aroma, very pleasant.
When water is added, in my case a shy less than 3/1, the anise takes a step back.
The louche is a cloudy amber/white, with a blue tint in the edge, and it builds quickly in the glass.
Anise is again first in the mouth, followed by some herbs I can't really tell, maybe it the gentian or mugwort.
Wormwood in the finish with a slight hint of bitterness, and a smooth numbness on the tongue. No oil or thickness.
After a couple of minutes the anise and wormwood hangs around and begs for another glass.
In my opinion there's no need for sugar.
All and all a very nice absinthe, very close to 5 stars.

This probably should be a five star rating, because I really like this absinthe. But since I'm a beginner I want to leave some room for improvement in the future. Compared with other absinthes I have tried as Valkyria, St Antoine's and Enigma there really is no comparison. Amer is just levels above the one's mentioned.

I agree with my fellow connoisseurs on this absinthe. Nothing super special, but that is no reason to not add it to your reorder list when your first bottle is done. It is an absinthe that is affordable and delivers a quality experience. I am currently into diving into the deep end of complexity and quality, but to have this on my shelf as a relaxer when I am not quite feeling as sophisticated is reassuring. A good offering, at a good price!

Reminds me of Le Chateau De Provence. What a wonderful experience.

Excellent absinthe. Not a "Jade", but significantly less expensive.

It is not the best absinthe, but for that price it is very good, especially for novices and as everyday's absinthe.
