La Fee Absinthe Parisienne Arrives
We've gotten our hands on another bottle of absinthe recently, and we didn't even have to worry about whether customs officials were going to kick down our door, now that it's all legal and everything. The bottle we received was La Fee Absinthe Parisienne, and our first impression is that it's got a cool logo, that oh so dangereux green color, and a sweet silver absinthe spoon included. Not bad. Oh, and we also got the high test version - it comes in both 90 and 136 proof - so you can expect our review to be a bit off-kilter.
Here's what its creators have to say about it:
La Fee Absinthe Parisienne is distilled in Paris based on a 19th Century recipe containing wormwood and is the only absinthe authenticated by Marie-Claude Delahaye, founder and curator of the absinthe museum. Before diluting it is clear, showing a striking green color and has an attractive fresh anise aroma. When water is added its louche has great consistency turning a milky lime green. There are hints of fennel and apple fruit characters with a round textural mouth feel that is both smooth and refreshing.
