Accurate color and louche, the wormwood is up front and slightly forward in a good way, followed by smooth notes of fennel and anise, slight tongue numbing and a clean finish. Of the twenty or so absinthes I have had the privilege to drink, Vieux Pontarlier is in my top three. If you are trying absinthe for the first time, you cannot go wrong with this one. It is good with or without sugar. I would not recommend more than four parts water though, despite what the label says.
The French Liquored
It was great receiving the merchandise unbroken and well in tact. The liquored was wonderful it remined me like I was back in Paris. The price was wonderful too. Thank you so much.
