The first batch was quite unremarkable.

I think I received it towards the end of December- begining of January. I opened it not long ago.

Edit. Ordered it November 22nd.

Dishwater is the best description. Maybe I'll try another glass & see if I have the same reaction.

I had a bottle of Duplais from the first batch and I really didn't care for it. There was more sediment in that bottle than I have ever seen in an absinthe. The second batch is a complete turnaround.

Sediment is not a bad thing.

Shake it up and drink it.

Or filterate it.

I bought a bottle of the Duplais before moving to Phoenix, and I found it quite tasty! No sediment issues, either.

Unfortunately, there are so many others I've yet to try that I hate the idea of ordering three bottles of one thing!

I really liked the coriander finish in the second batch, but the instant feuille morte was a bit disconcerting.

Speaking of, my Ike has changed from beautiful green to almost the exact shade of the Duplais, just not as dark.

We're soon going to introduce an improved version of the Absinthe Duplais. We were using grape base, better herbs and have completely changed the coloring system. It is now really green and should be stabile. Taste is much more defined, much more present and intense.

I had the new one in a tasting in Zürich this week. Upon 20 other Absinthes from Switzerland, it was the one which gained most points.

Wow, that's the strongest post-louche shade of green I've ever seen. Is that a sample of which Markus is referring too? More info please!

It's also the most beautiful shade of pre-louched green I've ever seen, even topping the Edouard.

Actually, the absinthe is the Duplais specially made for France (less fennel, more other herbs), and only avaiable in France since yesterday.
I guess the coloring process is the same for the last batch of regular Duplais and that it will have this wonderful color.
I was really amazed when I poured this glass blink.gif .

I shot these pictures for my incoming review of the Duplais France on heureverte.com.
