the only difference between the old version of VDF and the new version is that the new version is unfiltered.

But what a difference that lack of filtration made.

That must have been a hell of a thick and tight filter !

Whatever, the new unfiltered version is much better and that was the main result comming out of this side by side tasting.

I noticed that as well. After months of sitting in the cellar I decided to give the VDF's another tasting. I was very surprised to see how differently they had both aged. The new VDF is not that bad... It is not a favorite of mine but alas it was nice to have another glass.

That explains why you still had any left to review!

Am I the only one that noticed a "grassy" vegetal character in the VDF?

Um, no.

I don't have much. I might revisit the review next week because I'm just getting over a cold and may have shortchanged the UE Sapin slightly in aroma and taste. I really liked the Sapin at one time but it just doesn't hold a candle to the Jades, La Bleues and many other currently available absinthes.

There's an unopened bottle of the regular UE 68 sitting here too. Not sure what to do with that one. Maybe I'll buy a yacht and use the Un Emile to christen the bow.

He he he.

Well, had I not known that there are others that where worse in the aspects of mouth-feel, taste and also "color after water", I guess those would have been lower. Yes.

But in all fairness I must evaluate this one in the same way as any other.

Care for a sample?

You're getting closer, Jim.

Now, just make it look like all the others.

What more do I need to do? I think it looks a lot like all the others? You want me to add the "out of #" part?
