A fine Verte made at the Combier distillery in France. A fine hommage to the classic, refreshing taste of absinthe. Read the whole description
- At first, enjoy L'Entêté without sugar (due to its relatively low alcohol compared to other Vertes).
- For one measure of absinthe (3cl), add 2 to 5 measures of fresh water.

Taste, aroma and color are nice, but the louche is excedengly weak (even worst than Un Émile).

In short... Exquisite.
Highly fragrant, and quite feminine. This steeps the senses in sweet orange blossom and delicate spice.
A fine balance of the finest flavors and an Absinthe which can be equally enjoyed louched or neat.

It's hard not to compare this to the Jade range, which is also a product of Combier. Colour wise it's the slightly paler more opalescent cousin of the L'Esprit d'Edouard, still a beautiful natural colour to behold though. The louche is one of the best I've seen so far, rivaling the well known quality of the Jade 1901 - gorgeous oil trails, swirling clouds of colour changes as the louche slowly develops, simply delightful to watch. The final louche colour is a pale white-ish green, with some interesting light play when held up to a sunlit window. It's a little on the thin side in terms of colouration, but that is more than made up for my the taste. What can I say, this is a herbaceous symphony that builds from it's top notes and then slowly unfolds with a crescendo of the holy trinity of Absinthe (Anise, Fennel, Wormwood). Think flowering meadows in spring, think of cottage herb gardens awash with scent. Think Für Elise by Beethoven.

In a way this has everything I have been missing from the Jades - clean, crisp, peppery, lots of fresh wormwood - and still that flavour of roses and almonds that we know from Jade, especially Nouvelle Orleans. Then again, in a direct comparison, it seems skinny and lacks depth. But also, very importantly, not the slightest hint of funk. If they ever figure out how to to retain this kind of fresh aroma in the Jade range, oh my..

Definitely one of the best. Very strong taste, wonderful louche. Very recommended.
