Week 32: Jade Terminus Oxygenée [52 Whispers From The Muse]
Jade Terminus Oxygenée
Overall Rating: 4.6
Appearance: Beautiful crystal clear green, light peridot with a yellowish bend,
Louche: As with all of the Jades, very dynamic ending in a full, rich louche. Hints of yellow mix with the green as it builds to a barely translucent finish.
Aroma: Room filling as the pour was made, more so than the other Jades it seems. Floral with a hint of powdered sugar. Rich, with that signature Jade luxuriousness.
Flavor/Mouthfeel: As sweet as the Nouvelle Orleans but with the opulence of the Edouard. Creamy and vibrant as it excites the tastebuds. Perfectly balances trinity with some spice and that hint of confection from the aroma.
Finish: The spice lingers the strongest with a significant tingle. Sweet Anise and minty Wormwood hang for a good long time above hints of other herbs.
From Alandia “This treatment was advertised as being “Hygiénique”, because drinking a glass of this Absinthe would not extract oxygen from the blood but rather add oxygen to it, which would have a healing effect on the nerve system, circulation and lungs… In a way, this new production method was a reaction to several scientists and scholars proclaiming that alcohol, and absinthe above all – the scapegoat of the French wine industry – was very dangerous to consumers’ health.”
