Due to its lighter than usual anise, the Absinthe de Vichy is an ideal introduction to the world of absinthe, while remaining authentic and respectable. The interesting botanicals will appeal to those more experienced with absinthe.

Is this the new way to subtly diss
a newly released CO product?

Nothing sez absinthe like an attempt to be respectable.

Reviewed by Boggy 8/30/2011

COLOR BEFORE WATER 10/10
clear with bubble

LOUCHE ACTION 10/10
very nice bluish tinge of semi-opaque louche

COLOR AFTER WATER 10/10
very nice and fresh-looking

AROMA 26/30
neat sassafras is very evident together with verveine. Louched absinthe is herbal and floral, not spicy, delicate. Aroma is better neat and absinthe drunk without water is excellent as digestive substitute

MOUTH-FEEL 7/10
Is laced with coriander and more melissa notes, not cloying, both badiane and sugar are nowhere to be found

TASTE 19/20
it is difficult to find the right ratio. Without water it is really good already, 1:1 it is the best as absinthe, it has wormwood bitterness, sassafras aura and the marriage of melissa and verveine, the rest of the ingredients are well hidden and balanced

OVERALL IMPRESSION 8/10
If Rick from "Casablanca" had been selling absinthe in his bar, he would have been selling exactly that.

Boggy scores absinthe de Vichy 90 out of 100

I do not find its promotion to be wrong, either.

It's not like none of the other distiller's haven't reviewed their own xit or haven't reviewed it using a puppet or alias, or have their best pals review it, or bought out/created Absinthe forums and turned them into xill-sites...

I have put my hands into Republique, Louis XVIII, obviously Boggy, whereas Vichy and Napoleon are entirely Phil's. Raisonnee, Boggy verte, Boggy blanche and żubrsinthe will be again mine, but it is the future.

I don't call for exorbitant prices: http://www.absinthes...products_id=792

and unlike 100% of other absinthes, Boggy #2 contains 3 artemisias just like the earliest of the earliest.

That's the way is gotta be.
