96–100 pts. : March, 2007

The bouquet is vibrant, prickly and displays cedar, coriander, cardamom, aniseed, jasmine, rosemary, sage, basil and other botanicals. The palate is lushly textured, herbal sweet, peppery, and minerally. Sublime aftertaste.

Invented by the Carthusian Order of Christian monks in Grenoble, France in the 1760s. Pale green-yellow color. Mesmerizing, multilayered, complex bouquet includes scents of licorice, anise, violets, spearmint and basil. On palate, it’s very spirity, with sweet tastes of candied banana, key lime pie and peppermint. Finishes mellow, herbal and minty. A one-of-a-kind legend.

This light green liquid features musky, herbal and botanical aromas: star anise, tarragon, basil and Dutch licorice. Flavors are bold and sweet, with a slight earthiness and alcohol heat. Finishes sharp, herbal, grassy, floral and complex. Thick and viscous. A classic for gin-based cocktails.

This lime-green, anise-scented liqueur is sweet at first sip, then herbaceous in the middle, showing fennel, pine, tarragon and mild floral notes. The finish is spicy and warming, with anise, white pepper and ginger heat. It’s a bit too viscous and fiery for straight-up sipping, but it’s beautifully complex and a key ingredient for the classic Last Word and other cocktails.

Pale lime-green in color The nose is sweet with honey, and backed by herbal notes such as sage, thyme and rosemary. The body is thick and syrupy, and the palate follows the nose, though the herbal complexity is very hard to decipher here. The finish is smooth and fairly long.

: October, 2000

Intensely floral, with a warm nose of honeyed perfume. A touch of heat, with a pleasing medicinal, bitter leaf flavors and a hint of burnt flowers; sweet licorice in the rounded finish.

: June 1, 2003

Mysteriously overlooked and neglected but remains one of the finest examples of the distilling art. Nothing else even remotely like it in character, legend and quality.

: September 1, 2006

The bright pale green color is crystal clear and attractive. The nose after the pour is vibrant, prickly, and completely integrated as layers of woods/barks (cedar), seeds (coriander, cardamom, aniseed), flowers (jasmine), herbs (rosemary, sage, basil), and other botanicals (fennel, kale) unite in this magical elixir; the bouquet after further aeration is even more harmonious than in the initial passes; a textbook bouquet that is unlike any other. The palate entry is lushly textured, herbal sweet, peppery, and mineraly; the midpalate profile reinforces the entry impressions as the flavor goes on long, longer, longest into the sublime aftertaste.

: September, 2008

Intense, multidimensional flavors including toasted cumin, sandalwood, and pine; smooth and surprisingly harmonious with a finish of sweet juniper.
