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 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.

This is a lovely absinthe despite the aniseed power which works well with its soul anyway. Not complex but just a nice balance of anise and wormwood with an earthy hit. Very silky smooth and kicky. Simple but perfect in its own right. Pour it to your preferred levels and it will repay in kind.

It's a very simple absinthe, nice taste, nice kick.

Now this is a terrific absinthe, especially one you can drink every day or even share with your friends. I know I will order 3 bottles next time!

Perhaps I need to try this one again because I have not found it be a good absinthe as other contributors here.
Not very balanced, not complex, bitter.
Apart from the higher alcohol content and great price point it was a big dissapointment to me.

I haven't had this absinthe in a while. Why haven't I ordered it more recently? It is because I am continually ordering other top shelf absinthes from this wonderful site. This would be an order on a continual basis...if only I had more money:)

I love the bite and subtleties lurking within. No sugar needed for the hardcore green fairy devotee.
