Ah, I remember the bottle! Almost like an old beer bottle. I thought it wasn't finally decided on at the time though. I was just expecting to see a picture of the bottle with label attached on the link mthuilli provided.

I'm actually most interested by the Doubs Mystique. It says it was made "without regard to cost or technical difficulties". That, IMO, is the only way to make great absinthe. At least having nothing in common with the old Doubs aside from name and bottle shape is a good start…

1797 and Mystique should be on the shelves tomorrow for the best, next thuesday for the worse :)
I didn't taste 1797 yet, but Mystique is very nice, mellow and well balanced.

Mathematics everyone can understand:

Roquette 1797 = Delicious
Mystique = Delicious as well

Not in the least: using that logic it would say '1797 Roquette = Mystique as well'. You should try them — you would probably like them.

I just might. Unfortunately, Rodrigo Rato made me cry.

I wouldn't hold your breath, but having just talked to Peter, it's looking like we might actually have the Roquette and the Doubs in stock a day or two BEFORE the November 10th ETA given on the Absinthe Classics website.

I know. Incredible.

So, the absinthe 1797 roquette and the 1797 referred to at LdF as coming soon are in fact one and the same?
