...Still, 68 is a bit harsh, in my opinion...

Ya think so? What score do you think I'd give it?

"Burnt" isn't a real number, so I'm not sure it would be a relevant score, anyway.

On another note - I just drunk a glass of NO

That's some really odd sentence construction there, Mr. LAGN.

Unless you meant to say "drank".

I would bet that the smell in your nose is mucous combined with "Old Bay", masquerading as wormwood, and it's it time to cut yourself off. harhar.gif

Yeah - I drank, and I'm drunk. Strange -- those were only three glasses...

I only had two glasses of Edouard this afternoon, and neither one was Absomphesized.

Nonetheless, I've acquired a bit of a buzz...and there really is a wormwood (and fennel) aroma in my nose. abs-cheers.gif

Te amo, Edouard!

You meant "Ti amo", at least if you're not drunk. Plus you misspelled Tish.

I can't remember if that xit's burnt or not.

"Te amo" is valid in Portuguese, Spanish, and Latin.

Absinthe Suisse - La Bleue Clandestine from Alandia

COLOR BEFORE WATER
Well, it's absolutely clear. No sediment, no haze.
Almost docked it a mark for the deceivingly blue bottle but that bottle is way too cool.
10/10

LOUCHE ACTION
Gradient lines noted during the first few drops with light hazing at the bottom of the glass. Louches heavily opaque after about 1 part water. Likely star anise influence at work here.
7/10

COLOR AFTER LOUCHE
Milky white color. Nothing out of the ordinary for better or worse for a La Bleue with star anise in the mix.
7/10

AROMA
Definitely the strong suit of this absinthe. Nice fennel/anise balance with lovely floral underpinning. While adding water, the aroma blossoms to fill the room with honey sweetness and wider floral bouquet.
26/30

MOUTH-FEEL
Moderately oily texture with mild tongue numbing from the star anise. Oily trails noted along the sides of the glass after sipping. Minimal alcoholic bite due to the low 106 proof of the liquor.
7/10

TASTE
Very refreshing taste with predominant anise, fennel and a mere hint of wormwood. A light licorice aftertaste lingers on the palate. This La Bleue does not leave a sense of tails behind as other commercial Swiss absinthes have. In the end, the taste is more than satisfactory but does not entirely live up to the wonderful aroma.
16/20

OVERALL IMPRESSION
The La Bleue Clandestine may be the best commercially available non-colored absinthe that I've tasted. While not as complex as the Blanche de Fougerolles, it smells wonderful and goes down very smoothly (as evidenced by my nearly empty bottle).
8/10

TOTAL
81/100

Sorry, nice try, and thanks for playing!

That was Spanish, not Italian...TE amo.

(Sorry, Andrew...I just noticed you beat me to the punch.)

As to misspelling Tish, she's very tolerant of little dalliances...

As long as they're absinthe related.

LS:

I was going to rate the Kubler 53, but after reading your scoring of the Alandia Clandetine La Bleue, EVERY part of the breakdown would score IDENTICALLY for me!

Therefore, I'll cut to chase and summarize by giving the Kubler 53 an 81, as well.

Funny that Artemis scored the Kubler 53 and the Doubs at 81 as well. Seems to be the magic number so far.

The Blanches (Bleues) have a natural advantage over the Vertes in the color department. As for the other categories, it will be interesting to see how the clear absinthes stack up against each other. Of the commercial blanches that I've tasted, the La Bleue and the Blanche de Fougerolles are much better than the Kubler 57, White Fairy and Un Emile La Blanche. It's difficult to compare the Clandestine with the Fougerolles because they're completely different beasts. Hopefully, I'll have an opportunity to sample the Kubler 53 soon but it doesn't sound like it will be much different that the other 53 degree absinthes trickling out of Switzerland recently.

Artemis, I know what the answer will be before I ask, but it's a wet Saturday afternoon and I am bored.

Where did you get the Doubs? boobs.gif

I'm somewhat disappointed to see the Doubs website hyping its chop.gif content. Oh well, I guess business is business.
