Extra-aged Green Chartreuse. The pale lime green color is eye-catching and flawlessly free of sediment. In the opening sniffs, the aroma is keenly botanical (anise, licorice, fennel) and seed-like (caraway, coriander); additional time in the copita stimulates more vegetal/woodsy scents to emerge, especially sawdust, pine bark, cardamom, basil, and grass. The palate entry is off-dry to bittersweet and concentrated on peppermint, citrus peel, and sage; the midpalate taste profile is harmonious as the various components of herbs, sweetness, alcohol, and woodsy botanicals meld perfectly into a single flavor thrust that is unforgettable. Concludes with finesse and power.
