Petermarc, perhaps it wasn't released into the open liquor market yet, and it is just a test run bottle of absinthe from the distillery? Maybe the marketing plans fell through?

this bottle is so stupidly rare that it is not even acknowledged by the people who made it...it is a re-filled pernod fils bottle, with a crooked seal which, by it's cude manufacture, seems to date from the 1870's...there is no open history of the corsican distillery l.n. mattei making absinthe at all...however, recent discovery of this bottle and and a 'blanche' label prove that they did...my bottle has been re-corked and waxed, but i have every confidence that the contents are real as the seller wanted to open it with me and drink it (as he did with the vintage berger) i hope to do this in the future...

I wonder who has the Pernod Fils Pontarlier recipe, whether it is Pernod Ricard or Pernod.
But I'm not too well versed on the modern history of the company. After reading about the aftermath of the ban, I really didn't care to read any further than that. When people speak of splits in the Pernod family ties, don't they mean how Pernod split into those two companies?

Although very different in taste i'm sure....I found the taste of Argenti absenta to have a 'spicy'and very perfumed taste, balanced within a green anise foretone. I'm wondering if these tastes are similar? I really must try and get hold of a sample of Berger soon.

The vintage Berger is very distinctive with the "baby powder" (Peter's phrase) thing - I used to think this was an ingredient, but now recognize it as an aspect of aging fairly simple, but QUALITY herbal ingredients. Ted's recreation was very similar to the old stuff, and would probably taste almost identical if it had the same amount of aging. Cardamom? Maybe - it has that soft, spicy character for sure. If memory serves me correctly, Peter and I tasted them side by side (actually, he was across the table, but the absinthes were side by side), but we didn't have our science hats on; just sort of knocked it down.

there is a much more 'spicy' taste than pernod fils (the only other vintage i have tasted) which i attribute to cardamom, which seems to be a 'southern' recipe, even though it was first launched in couvet, switzerland. i am sure my bottle was distilled in marseille, probably around 1910.
ted's clone of the berger was uncanny, considering his experience came from a mignonette.
i have a mignonette of j.p. pernot and a full liter of l.n. mattei (from corsica)65 but have not tasted them yet...
i will post another review of the vintage berger tonight, if i am out of my mind enough to pour a glass...

Ha ha!! I see what you mean Peter :-) It's been too long since i tasted the stuff.
I've yet to try Berger. Nearly had my hands on a bottle about a year ago from a woman in Lyon, but it fell through! I love the shots of your bottle on emerald quest!! Just out of curiosity, can you relate the taste to other vintage brands?
Cheers.

I used to have a mignonnete of vintage oxygenee, which i drank. From my memory it was similar to Gempp but not as 'Fresh'. In short, modern oxygenee bottle is a far cry from the original in all ways possible. The only slight similarity is the label!
