Full Version: The Color Of Vintage Pernod?

I am curious to know what the original un-louched color of vintage Pernod was. In vintage postcards and photographs imbibers seem to be sipping a very dark liquid. Was this a way to illistrate that there was something in the glass, could it be possible that Absinthe would apear to clear in the photograph? Well for anyone who has been lucky enough to have had Vintage Pernod please let me know!

I believe its a slight neon green, but I'm pulling my source from absinthe history in a bottle, so I'm not sure.
Absomphe
I'm not sure "neon" (even slight) would be accurate...when I think neon green, Mari Mayans is the picture I get. If the modern, but historically inspired Jade is any indication (actually that is based on the Edouard, but I have a feeling it's close enough), I think it was a soft pale to medium green, perhaps a half a shade lighter, but a tad more vivid than today's Fougerolles Verte 72.

From what I understand, Fougerolles is probably the closest modern commercial absinthe yet to the vintage stuff. headbonk.gif (ok, everyone who's actually had vintage is now allowed to whack me for being misinformed).

Of course we must keep in mind that there were even more varieties & variations of absinthe available in the Belle Epoque than there are now, so there must have been quite a range of colors & louches...
