Better do what it says.

I had the Premier Fils last night.

I don't have my notes on me so I'll post the score later, but to summarize, I think this beverage is an apparition of a great absinthe. I think age and other unknown factors have probably deteriorated it a bit, but I didn't think it tasted bad or wrong, which leads me to believe this absinthe was very non-traditional from the get-go and they eschewed anise for other more floral perfumy herbs. The palate to me seems like the intention was to create an outstanding alcoholic beverage that was a departure from the creamy anise based absinthe norm.

It ain't no Pernod Fils or Edouard, but I still enjoyed it throroughly. The alcohol base was outstanding and could be considered a work of art on its own, even without the herbal accents. It is a lightweight in terms of mouthfeel, louche and other typical absinthe charcterstics though, so I can see why some weren't impressed. It almost seemed like an attempt to merge a high quality armagnac type liquor with some herbal traits common to absinthe.
