Description

A spirit steeped in infamy and history, Absinthe requires little introduction.

Nicknamed La Fée Verte (The Green Fairy), Absinthe is distilled from the herb Grande Wormwood, and has a bittersweet, aniseed-rich flavour.

The tipple of choice for historical "characters" such as Toulouse-Lautrec, Van Gogh and Oscar Wilde, there are some truly exceptional absinthes out there.

This Drinks by the Dram tasting set contains five 3cl samples of superb absinthe for your delectation.

Absinthe Tasting Set contains:
Cold-Distilled Absinthe
- La Maison Fontaine Blanche
- Jade VS 1898 Absinthe
- St. George Absinthe Verte
- La Fée Blanche Absinthe

Contents of the set are subject to change. However, rest assured that whichever dram set you order will include 5 superb drams which will either match or exceed the value of what is listed.

Tasting Notes

Cold-distilled Absinthe:
Nose: Light and fresh. Lemon, aniseed and fennel are present, but in a completely new, fresh way.
Palate: A veritable explosion of flavour, almost minty summer freshness. Anise is well controlled, allowing the other botanicals to appear in their own right.
Finish: Long and lingering, but with freshness still very much present.

La Maison Fontaine Blanche:
Aroma: Beautiful green anise and a distinctive floral aroma.
Taste: Sweet and refreshing green anise, intense wormwood and fennel. Notes of lemon and peppermint in the background, along with other tasty herbals and florals.
Finish: Velvety and smooth.

Jade VS 1898 Absinthe:
Aroma: Vegetal, herbal with allspice, fennel and anise. Dried herbal and slightly musty rather than fresh.
Taste: Dried herbaceous with continuing musty note. Wormwood, fennel and anise with marjoram and faint clove.
Aftertaste: Herbaceous, woody influenced finish.

St. George Absinthe Verte:
Flavour is dominated by that Big Red flavour, which seems to be a result of the combination of distilled anise, basil, and tarragon. Mostly basil. As it lingers on the palate the flavours separate so that they're more individually distinct.

La Fée Blanche Absinthe:
Nose: Very herbal and fresh nose, with hints of peppermint, cardamom and even a little sweet cinnamon.
Palate: Fragrant and perfumed, notes of fresh flowers, star anise, fennel seed and parsley.
Finish: Long and spicy finish.
