Yeah, so did ours.
We were just rewriting history.
For a bit.

To score this a 10 and a really green PF1914 a 5, you must have quite a grudge against lighter colours.

Maybe if it was Really Green?

When a verte looks like a blanche, it doesn't rate a 10.


When it has full color, even if brown and clear, it does.



It was lucky to get a 4 for being clear with no sediment.

The thing is, for these absinthes, it's likely that they get a darker colour when aging. The colour is actually very pretty, but thin - thin like the early Pernot Fils Un Emile.

I'm not sure in what way our perception of how saturated the colour should be to be acceptable hasn't been coloured (pun intended) by modern artificially coloured absinthes.

If you look at vintage posters, you can find plenty that hint at darker absinthes, but also quite a few that are compatible with the aspect of the green PF1914.

It was a lot like the early Pernot Un Emile, and so it scored like the early Pernot Fils Un Emile.

That's tough to tell, because the pictures are of louched absinthes, and we're talking about colour before water.

I had a well preserved circa 1930s Tarragonna that had lost very little of its colour, and that was far more green and saturated than the PF "Very Green". I really liked the "Very Green", it's one of the best absinthes I've had, but the colour was weak, like it had fallen out or something.

So, I am getting ready to leave for France tomorrow. Thought I'd have a drink while packing to get in the right mood. Well, what do we have in the cabinet ... hmm, those small, brown sample bottles look interesting. "KOS Gold"? Nah. "EP 65% C1914"? Now we're talking.

Edouard Pernod, c. 1914

Reviewed by Gertz 6/9/2007

COLOR BEFORE WATER 8/10
Yellowish brown, but still with an ever so slight tint of green. Pretty, slightly less intense than others I've seen.

LOUCHE ACTION 8/10
A thick louche appears suddenly. Slower, more gradual would have been prettier in my opinion, but I can live with this.

COLOR AFTER WATER 8/10
Green, with just a hint of a slightly brownish tinge. I'd be perfectly happy with this colour in a modern absinthe.

AROMA 25/30
A hint of anise, but the alcohol base is quite apparent and overpowers most herbal notes. The base is obviously of high quality.

MOUTH-FEEL 9/10
A bit of a bite from a clean, high-quality alcohol base serves as background for the smooth, velvety feel I remember from vintage Pernod Fils. A dry mouthfeel lingers afterwards.

TASTE 19/20
It is hard to pick out individual notes, as it all blends damn well together in a perfect balance. It is a combination of a subtle, sweet flavor and a lingering, but pleasant bitter note that stays around as that dry mouthfeel mentioned above.

OVERALL IMPRESSION 10/10
Damn good drink.

Gertz scores Edouard Pernod, c. 1914 87 out of 100
