Gold Medal - San Francisco World Spirits Competition, 2009
Vieux Carre is batch-distilled using a double maceration process. Using a range of natural botanicals--including Grande Wormwood, Petite Wormwood, green anise, star anise, Fennel Doux Provence, melissa, genepi, hyssop, coriander, lemon balm, and spearmint--Vieux Carre's mossy hue is both lovely and completely natural. This is an intriguingly complex spirit with a rich, opalescent louche; varying proportions of water to absinthe will result in subtle changes in the aroma and flavor profiles. As Vieux Carre is made with real herbs, some sedimentation is normal; this is a sign of a well-made absinthe.

Note: glass and spoon not included.

Pleasantly Spicey February 2, 2010
Reviewer: John Hollan from Jacksonville, FL United States  
Though this lacks some of the kick found in some strongs, the falvour is complex and very enjoyable. The color is a bit dirty to start with and brings out an almost brown louche, the aroma is spicey and strong. I will certainly order Vieux Caree again.

A very nice absinthe December 30, 2009
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Yorktown Heights, NY United States  
While it's not strictly traditional, Vieux Carre is a delightful and refreshing absinthe at a very good price. It has a lot more citrus up front than most brands that are based on traditional recipes, and the flavor is somewhat less earthy and herbal. A great value.

The best value on the market October 2, 2009
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
In terms of cost/quality, there isn't a better value IMHO.  There is a nice depth of flavors in there, with genepi and spearmint complimenting traditional absinthe ingredients.  The only flaws would be more sediment than you will find in most bottles, and that it's a bit delicate, as finding the ideal absinthe/water ratio doesn't leave much margin for error.  Find that ratio though, and you will have found yourself a delightful beverage.

Another great absinthe from the U.S. September 26, 2009
Reviewer: Wilson Phillips from Natchez, MS United States  
This is one that deserves a spot in your collection. A little sweeter than most. No need to add any sugar.
