Esprit Edouard is a faithful recreation of the classic Edouard Pernod Absinthe which held great popularity and acclaim during the Belle Époque.
We tasted Esprit Edouard Absinthe Supérieure at Meeting No. 38 on July 29, 2015. We rated it very highly at 3.53 out of 5, though we had some disagreement among member ratings. Esprit Edouard Absinthe Supérieure ranks 3rd overall in Other. At a street price of $110, this spirit is on the pricier side, but well worth the money.
Black licorice in the best possible way. Surprisingly accessible before being diluted and has a nice amount of sweetness once water is added.
Not as much anise on the nose but definitely coats your mouth after swallowing. Good with one pour of water. Has a creamy quality after water is added. The milky aesthetic actually carries over to the feel in the mouth.
Makes me feel like a child rolling down a grassy hill in the summer. Sweet and grassy.
Step on through the initial punch with slight dilution with water. Perfect for a little introspection to kick off those creative moments!
A punch of anise with a nutty backbone. Green fairy nightmares may ensue. Hide the cutlery.
