Praise be to Rudi, the Jelly-Toe Cat. He is all-knowing, all-seeing, and all assholes cower under his gaze.

I think an analgram is what you have when you rearrange the letters, and realize the author is an asshole.

What I've tasted of LaFee doesn't compare at all (as in *not at all*) with what I've tasted from Jade.

LaFee is like a good Deva. Better than many spanish but it's far from the Holy Grail. I only had two glass from a mini bottle so I'll re-taste it at the NY GT to confirm my review if there's some over there but up to now, I'm un-impress.

No, no, LL, it's not what it seems to be. You have to re-arrange the letters.

But my dad's a Mason, and my mom's Order of the Eastern Star, doesn't that grant me automatic entry?

Of course, my being Divinely Chosen Profit of the New World Religion COULD offend the Established Order . . . but how could I possibly refuse such a calling?

Hush now! You're not part of the "inner circle" The forum Illuminati have not deemed you worthy... bide your time, pay your dues and say lot's of nice things about those from whose labors you may be rewarded... or something.

nascentvirion,

La Bleue has a strong anise taste. Jade does not. In Jade, anise is just one of many flavors. It doesn not dominate.

Destiny,

yeah, the "mountain meadow" imagery implies alot without saying much. I was trying to suggest the wonderful range of floral and herbal flavors in Jade.

>> "."..is like pouring a mountain meadow in your mouth."

Funny how this statement is both beautiful and scary.

Can't wait until I can do my very own Jade taste-test - I'm so curious to see how it's flavor compares to what I've tried. Your comments on LaFee make me all the more curious. I sincerely believe that I can taste the coloring much more than any other brand that I've tried. Perhaps it's just being masked by the extra anise in the other brands?

Is this a recent version of Jade?

I am wondering how much of anise is in Jade & La Bleue ? Is it overpowering or suttle ?

Furthering my experiment, I have just poured myself a glass of La Fee. La Fee has been getting a bad rap as of late in the forum. It is undeserved.
While not as complex as Jade, it holds its own against La Bleue. La Fee is worthy of more respect than it gets. La Bleue's
mythic stature is probably more hype than reality.
If you believe that La Bleue is the Holy Grail, then you probably believe that Jim Morrison is alive and living in Paris.

I just drank a glass of La Bleue followed by one of Jade. While La Bleue is definitely a classy absinthe, Jade is just so much more sublime.
I don't know what number of La Bleue I drank (I have several different bottles of La Bleue and I don't know which is which and I really believe that numbering the different La Bleues is a bullshit marketing plow), but compared to Jade, La Bleue
its one dimensional. As La Bleue unfolds in the mouth, it has few stories to tell. It is superior to the Spanish stuff, but it lacks a defining character. Whether its #1,2,3 or 4, La Bleue is big on anise and short on complexity. Jade, on the other hand, is like pouring a mountain meadow in your mouth. It has a wonderful range of flavors and sensations, it is bitter, sweet, spicy, earthy and yet elegant. The spicy elements start on the tongue and work their way up into your nose and sinuses. This is a good thing. Like a light dose of wasabi. You know the feeling. Your senses open up, come alive. I really love Jade. Five years ago, when I first started to drink absinthe, I did so because I was hoping for some kind of psychedelic experience. When that didn't come to pass, I continued to drink it because I was an admirer of its history. But, over the years, I stopped drinking the Green Fairy and continued drinking good wine. Jade has revived my interest in absinthe, not as a mystical beverage, but as a wonderfully captivating drink. And just between me and you,
it does seem subtlely psychedelic.
