The long awaited final chapter of Jade liqueurs' absinthe portfolio.

The development of Jade Terminus Absinthe Oxygenee took several years: historical sleuthing, botanical research and patience were all necessary to produce this high quality absinthe.

Jade Terminus is an homage to one of the best absinthes of the Belle Epoque: Cusenier Oxygenée. The Cusenier distillery created this absinthe in reponse to claims that absinthe was dangerous, and claimed that their proprietary oxygenation process left the absinthe free of any potentially deleterious properties. We now know that absinthe is only as harmful as any other alcoholic drink, however this unique oxygenation process lent a unique character to the absinthe, so to make Jade Terminus Oxygenee Ted Breaux decided to use a hot oxygenation process closely mirroring the original technique.

This handcrafted absinthe is distilled by T.A. Breaux, according to traditional french methods, and aged fully for several years. Absinthe alembics from the 19th century have been used for its destillation in the historical Combier distillery. This absinthe is made of a eau-de-vie base spirit, unusual Alpine varieties of wormwood, and other European herbs. No sugar or artificial colours are in the recipe. This absinthe has rested for an average of 3 years before bottling.

This absinthe represents the most powerful expression of the spirit in the Jade portfolio!

Creamy, with potent aromatics and a lengthy, stimulating aftertaste, recalling the medicinal origins of the spirit.

Only downfall was a dry cork. Contents still very enjoyable.

The most complex of all the Jades I have ever enjoyed. Has that wormwood bite but also this “spicyness” and richness that is really hard to describe. The color is a solid peridot with gold and when louched gives way to opalescent green and gold. The bouquet fills the room and the taste lingers on the tongue like a long lost love. Absolutely magical this expression is, and if this is to be the final then hats off!

Deceivably light and a pleasure to drink. Sweet, even without the sugar.

My wife and I purchased this after absolutely loving both the Jade V.S. 1898 and Jade Esprit Edouard. We prepare with an auto see-saw dripper and 1 sugar. The louche was quick and thick, with a full and creamy mouth-feel. Strong herbal front with lingering aftertaste. We both lean towards stronger anise flavored absinthes, and unlike other reviews I read here we both found this one to be very herbaceous but quite light on the anise flavor. I began to enjoy it more and more as flavors developed over time while the glass sat. Not my favorite Jade due to my anise tilt but amazing nonetheless if I don't compare to the others. 4 stars from me ONLY because of my personal preference for stronger anise flavor.

Another hit from Jade! Another one of the best I've had, and like the 1901 faithful to the pre-ban stuff. Ted Breau knows his chemistry!

I am just starting to get into absinthe, and living in the US limits some of my choices . Can't really tell the difference between types of anise in the mix, but there was a definite refinement in the Jade compared to the Grande Absinthe and the Lucid brands I had previously tasted. Even with the higher proofing, I barely felt the alcohol on my tongue there were so many other things going on. Everything was very well blended ,and I like the taste of black licorice. Now I know I can have it shipped to the US I can't wait to try a bleu style.

One word: Heavely. This is EASILY the best absinthe I've ever bought! My ONLY complaint (and one that I thought wasn't great enough to harm the rating) was the cork in the bottle. I had to go out and get a corkscrew but because the cork was so small it ended up breaking. I've gotten a tiny bit of cork in the bottle, but I rememberd that I had a T-cork from an old Lucid bottle that is working nicely to cover the top now.
