I just like that it comes in a wooden box.

But how does it taste?

Uhmm… What original formula? I've heard of a number of different and competing absinthes that had "Pernod" as part of their name but I know of no traditionally made absinthe that was called simply: Pernod. I have heard of the term Pernod being used for an absinthe substitute.

The key word is "essential" though DNA may added as a thickener and
to enhance the louche . . .

Thanks, this is interesting news. This caught my attention (but again, I am not a native English speaker):
QUOTE
By using traditional methods and combining wine based distillates and macerates of real herbs and botanicals

Sounds like all (?) the maceration is done after the distillation of the wine based spirits.

Even for someone with a complete mastery of English, that sentence doesn't reveal how the product is made. It could mean lots of things, and therefore means nothing.

The most meaningful tidbit I've caught out of this is that they've bought up the year's Pontarlier wormwood like an 800 lb gorilla devours bananas. It's made it hard for the nimble but decidedly lighter-weight-class artisans to get their fill. Logically one would expect the growers to respond to market demands with their pricing. We'll see if planted acreage increases as well.

It will probably raise the price of absinthe and they may not even use it, though my guess is that they will macerate it and and combine the extract with essential oils. Even that would be an improvement over the usual cheap pastice.
