Absinthe Jade Esprit Edouard tasting notes

The Jade absinthe range has a solid reputation among connoisseurs. Ted Breaux, its creator, had in mind in 2005/2006 the project of recreating mythic absinthes from the Belle Époque, including Pernod Fils, Berger, and the so famous Edouard Pernod. Today, you can get a glimpse of vintage absinthes when tasting the Jade Esprit Edouard absinthe. That’s the one we will talk about today with my humble tasting notes.

Color: very pale green, slightly goldish on the edges.

Aroma before water: a lot of aromas are mixing together, with a little dominance of grand wormwood; anise and hyssop. The aromatic bouquet is overall rather fresh.

Louche: without being a firework, the louche forms progressively and nicely.

Aroma after water: the freshness comes out even more now, still with the same complexity in the background.

Taste: it’s deliciously creamy and rich in mouth. Fresh, herbal and spicy notes are dancing together on a perfectly round scene. A little acidity comes out of the base alcohol however.

Final: wormwood and anise stay on the palate, while hyssop waits the very end to show off.

Conclusion: a rich and complex absinthe. Better have already sharpened your palate with more simple absinthes before giving a go at the Edouard, otherwise there is a risk of missing some of its subtleties…

How to drink Absinthe Jade Esprit Edouard

A very little piece of sugar can be recommended, but the no-sugar version works perfectly too. Drink 2-3 glasses and let the bottle age a few months before going back to it.
