Week 38: Magie Verte [52 Whispers From The Muse]
According to my friends at Absinthes.com “As every year, the Guy distillery created a special absinthe to celebrate the Absinthiades. The Magie Verte was developed for the Absinthiades 2016, in cooperation with the friends of the museum in Pontarlier (Les Amis du Musée de Pontarlier). Absinthe Magie Verte is an almost magical green absinthe as the name already suggests. The label of the bottle was designed by the artist Marcel Mille. This absinthe was aged for one year in oak barrels made from French Troncais wood, usually used for ageing Cognac. This gave the absinthe a slightly spicy taste and a subtle aroma of vanilla. The herbs used for the production of Magie Verte were some of the favorite plants from Armand Guy (founder of the Guy distillery). They enhance the taste of the absinthe without masking the minty and peppery aroma. Limited edition – only available while stocks last.“
It’s a well know fact that I’m a damned sucker for anything “Limited Edition” or “Short Run”. Back when I collected comics I was the mark who bout every cover variation and second copies of my favorite books so I had one to read and one to pristinely save. It seems that as I got older my collectionables just got more expensive. I had to get 2 bottles.
