NO is one of my favorite commercial absinthes. I never get tired of it. I'm a little surprised that it's the first Jade to come to the US, though, because it's the only one that is classified "amer" in France.


I could go into an exhausting tirade about the technicalities associated with the legal definition of "amer", but there may not be enough bandwidth here to support it. het.gif I feel it's going to be a vestigial term before long anyway.

The good news is that N.O. has not been reformulated. Production has become more expensive and exacting due to the increased controls, but the quality of the product is undiminished.

Even though some frown upon it because they drink way better on a daily basis, this is still better than what we have available now. Things are looking up.


Unless it's HG, they're isn't a way better. Better, mebbe. Belle Amie, the new Doubs, perhaps on par, perhaps better. Way better, um, no.

Oh, and TAB sez no reformulatin' has been done.

It's cool that you repeated that, so nobody had to scroll up two posts and read his actual post.

Oops. That's what I get for not PTFA the entire thread before posting.

too quirky, although it really hit the spot once in a great while.

Congrats, Ted, on bringing your flagship product home. abs-cheers.gif

I can't wait to see more of the Jades land on U.S. soil…

Ah, the evolution of Absinthe regulations has revealed that the allele for "Amer" is recessive? It's about time we cross bred other varieties of Absinthe regulation with the French type, thus hopefully rendering the French vestigial phenotype irrelevant.

This is great news. So far Americans new to absinthe have a much better chance of starting out on the right foot then most Europeans had just three to five years ago.

Interesting news, indeed. However, from what I have seen at Alan's blog, there are some crapsinths coming along together with better brands, so the news is not that great. Someone should prevent that from happening, so Americans would get only the best, without repeating the European scenario we have witnessed some years ago.

I don't think it's possible to pass laws mandating that all absinthe be quality absinthe. But, yes, there should be some way to insure that all liquors labelled absinthe (or extrait if you're French, or absinthist) are absinthe.

All I know is that Le Tourment Vert has a far more expansive marketing campaign in the US than any of the better absinthes available. They've got reps setting up in liquor stores everywhere with a nice looking fountain and all that, and their reps are not very knowledgeable.

Viridian needs to do some print ads highlighting the differences between oil mix artificially colored crap and real distilled absinthe, otherwise people are going to buy Le Tourment Vert instead of their stuff because it's a little cheaper, the bottle is attractive and they've got reps everywhere spreading disinformation.

It would appear they've got some money.

DAVID ARQUETTE's new movie short is the first to be produced by French Absinthe brand Le Tourment Vert.

The quirky 3-D film, The Butler's in Love, is based on a Mark Stock painting that Arquette first spotted in San Francisco, California restaurant Bix, where the actor and then-wife-to-be Courteney Cox held their pre-wedding rehearsal dinner in 1999.

Arquette tells blogger Marc Malkin, "I never forgot about the painting. I think of the romance behind it."

Apparently their absinthe isn't the only thing they've funded that should be flushed down the toilet.

A self-indulgent film made about a personal anecdote from a mediocre actor inspired by a painting he liked that reminds him of his wife. Boy, I'm camping out all night so I can get tickets to see that. Way to go La Tourment, your generous funding of the arts is helping bring recognition to the next Edgar Degas.

Whoever says Absinthe doesn't inspire great art is clearly mistaken.
