Never mind, that picture with 200ml of preban makes the point better than I can.

Hmmm… I have just received the "sample" of "Cusenier Oxygenee" and although I am at work I decided to open the bottle to smell the contents and have a strange feeling about them… More later.

Did anyone else get a sample? P.M. me if you did. Thanks!

Tasted this again last night with Marc and Antoine in Pontarlier - the Cusenier is a robust, full bodied absinthe, rich and with a tonic-like character - rather as you might expect it to be based on their "C'est ma sante" marketing.

We also tasted the Comoz Absinthe des Alpes, which is, imho, quite stunning, very powerful wormwood and a wonderful herbal quality, a highly distinctive vintage absinthe.

I bet it tastes just like the Boggy Cusenier.

Oxy should post a rank ordering of his favorite prebans absinthes.

Can somebody elucidate what "tonic-like" means in terms of taste? It could refer to any number of different profiles but without a better grounding or reference it's difficult to imagine in which way it's meant.

Do you have a small "fish" smell at first time ?

I'm finding it very interesting that they pumped Ozone (O3) into their absinthe. Ozone does crazy things to molecules that have carbons with double-bonds (Anethole, Limonene, Fenchone, etcetera). The problem is to effectively carry out what is called "Ozonolysis", you need to carry it out at -78ºC, and I'm sure they didn't do that. However, Ozone can still carry out oxidative radical reactions at room temp/atmospheric pressure and could screw up a lot of the molecules in absinthe and create all sorts of unpredictable by-products. If there was ever an absinthe worth trying some GC/MS or NMR on, this would probably look very interesting. While I have not tasted this Absinthe, I'm pretty certain that what they did to the absinthe would not replicate normal aging, nor would it age like a normal absinthe would with 100 years under its belt, and I'm not surprised that people would report unusual tastes and smells.
