A bombe is also a French dessert, typically with layers of different flavoured ice cream one inside the other - so in the context of absinthe it might signify an impressively varied herbal taste profile on the mouth.

Almost.
We use the word "bombe" quite often in France and it has different meanings (ex: amazing event/situation/woman). In this case it simply means "an explosion of various flavors in mouth".

And no, no camphor or scorched taste. It's perfect (at least for me) and I stand by my opinion and review, this is the best verte I've ever tasted (French/Swiss/US HG included).

While I can easily can why you prefer an absinthe without the camphor, I'm not sure how an absinthe can claim to be a Oxygénée clone while lacking the original's most distinctive, if least pleasent, attribute.

A canned response?

Maybe it will get camphory with time. Maybe the vintage Oxygenee did so - they didn't expect anybody to keep it for very long before drinking it. Maybe Ted has reverse engineered the process harhar.gif , improved it so that it doesn't create undesirable effects, or applied it with a lighter hand than they did. Lots of possibilities.

Who claimed that it's an Oxygénée Cusenier clone?
It's only the oxygenation process that has been reproduced, not the absinthe.

I don't think anybody is claiming that it's a clone, but it's reasonable for people to assume that it could be, or could be intended to be, given Ted's claims about previous products, and the fact the word "Oxygenee" is on the label.
I think people are raising questions about the effects of oxygenation, which are also reasonable, given what we know or think we know about the process.

"oxygénée" was on many labels back then, or "ozonée", but you're right, I can easily understand the confusion because Cusenier was the most famous distillery using this technique.

"or think we know". Nobody here has ever reproduced this large-scale process as far as I know. I'm not Ted's representative but he is the only one who did it.

Use of the word "clone" seems to have been totally scrubbed from the Jade website. Nevertheless, Ted's "historically accurate recreations" all have accompanying copy that is more or less suggestive of the idea. For Terminus one finds the vague, but leading phrase…

created as homage to one of the most interesting absinthes of the fabled Belle Époque.

But it's unclear exactly which one specifically. My assumption would be Cusenier. And my reaction to that assumption is… I need more data points pointing away from my own experience tasting preban Cusenier before I would ever want to taste this one.


This place is so… educational and informative.

Who'd need go anywhere else?
