Knowin' you, Socky, you have already polished une bouteille off. How it was?

Of course, soon some will start claimin' that as Dr Ordinaire wass Santa Claus, his pony must be reindeer; IMO very nice and traditional label.

That is also very nice to hear:

No bottle yet, it wasn't bottled yet during the Absinthiades.
But what we tasted was very good and different from the first 1797 batch.

There was only one prototype bottle (the absinthe was the final version, the bottle was proto, and no wax on the cork) for the saturday morning tasting at Brasserie de la Poste.

And the absinthe was herbal, rich and complex, more "absinthe-like" than the old 1797… and it was fucking good!

I don't have a picture but it's a nice unusual bottle shape, Italian style, like for Portos.

I guess you weren't paying attention that afternoon when we tasted it along with the Doubs Mystique, and Oxy showed us the 1797 bottle?

I am really looking forward to both the 1797 and the Mystique, they were both excellent!

I'll be there for a few weeks. Just me, my girl, and my guitar.

Nov. 10th is my birthday so I think it will make a nice present.

Perfect then! Go to Vert d'Absinthe and ask your girl to offer you a nice birthday gift, I'm sure Luc will have some of the 1797 by then.

Enjoy your EuroFuckyLand trip abs-cheers.gif

I'll be visiting Luc's shop on the 6th but alas I'll be in Barcelona around the 10th and I doubt that FSC will have it then. Who knows perhaps I'll just stay in Paris?

You could email Luc and beg him to save you a bottle if he gets any. Remember his shop is closed Sundays and Mondays.
