The Jade 1901 absinthe from Ted Breaux, a replica of the historical Pernod Fils, is an absinthe for connoisseurs.

Colour: clear emerald green.

Louche: Builds up quickly in layers with the characteristic oil trails until it turns into fully opaque.

Aroma: Green anise fills the room as the louche forms.

Taste: Creamy with a juicy green anise in front, shortly followed by a kind of floral wormwood and a powdery hyssop, just like in a pre-ban Pernod Fils, its ancestor. The 1901 is definitely the best reproduction of a vintage absinthe!

Finish: No secret here, the savoury green anise numbs the tongue and palate, in a lovely way.

Exactly what I like about this absinthe is the complex mix of herbs and spices that give this an amazing taste. I've come across quite a few absinthes that can pass as just tasting like "black jellybeans" to most people, but this one separates itself from that crowd. The anise and fennel are not on the forefront of this particular one. In fact, it's hard to even tell if there is one dominant flavor. It's like they all meld together into a delicious mural of colorful tastes that leave you wondering what you just tasted, but you don't care, you just want more. On top of the flavor, the louche is particularly thick and opalescent. It really is a beauty. This is an expensive bottle, but one that every absinthe drinker should try. I would recommend it for more experienced absinthe drinkers since it is a real top shelf bottle and it's nice to try it after wetting your whistle with a few others prior. This is the kind of spirit I would not buy frequently, but I know I will be very happy coming back to.

My first bottle of absinthe and I love it. It's really balanced so the aniseed is not overpowering. I got this for a 1920s-style party and some people don't like absinthe, but they felt it was not too strong that they couldn't drink it. It's something that suits everyone...and it's plenty strong!

Classic little number. Although the anise is not overpowering it is predominant and for my palate it made it hard to discern other elements, the louche and mouth feel it exquisite. Most enjoyable drink, try with a little less sugar but as twist treat yourself to some 'Parma Violets' (sweets) on the side the combination is lovely.

My only gripe is the wine bottle style cork, without a hand openable element; the alcohol evaporation dries the cork out to the point of disintegration the cork-screw destroyed it, poring through a tea strainer was an interesting addition to the absinthe ritual, perhaps next time I should add my iced water served from a tea-pot!

This one is a perfect allround absinthe for every mood.
No hangovers, high quality alcohol.
Very dominant anise taste, with a spicy white pepper touch.
Simple liquorice taste, with wormwood in the background and floral notes on top accompanied with a earthy and sweet wine taste.

Il miglior assenzio sinora mai provato! Non ne ho provati tantissimi (6 in tutto) ma questo è il top! Mezza zolletta di zucchero a mio gusto.

Wow, this is just it. I had a few different bottles to taste, me and all of my mates simply said 1901 was the best of them all. Thick and rich texture, super oily, provides a wonderful louche effect, taste is just what you would expect, full, round, pungent and refined. Lots of grassy absinthe notes and mild-thick aniseed. Vivid olive green hue with thick louche, intense aromatic experience, to be sipped slowly, intensely aromatic, super smooth, on the connoisseur side, extremely refined and rewaring. Delicious.

One of my favorite absinthes. Underlying sweetness, matched with a healthy bitterness but not biting in any way. The balance of flavors is amazing. High alcohol content, but doesn't taste that way. I prefer it on the rocks without sugar or water, and wait for minimal dilution before starting to enjoy.

This is my first purchase of Absinthe and will definitely not be my last. I thought I would hate the taste as I normally drink whiskeys, vodkas, and rum but I've found myself a new norm. Will definitely recommend it to my friends and family. Although I'm only a beginner, I know I'll be an Absinthe enthusiast before long.
