Chartreuse 1605 Liqueur d'Elixir Reviews
Tasting Notes by Rocky
Nose: Not what I was expecting; it has the herbaceousness of the Elixir Végétal, but with the sweeter notes of the Yellow, which mask the pungency.
Palate: A liquid herb garden with basil, dill, aniseed, ginger, tarragon, eucalyptus and caraway – simply stunning.
Finish: Long, with a welcome minty freshness.
Comment: Mellow on the nose, this explodes on the palate with a freshness unlike any other liqueur I’ve tried. Despite the high strength, this isn’t apparent on the palate as everything is so well balanced.
Serving suggestion: This is the cleanest Chartreuse for me and doesn’t need anything adding. Eminently drinkable neat, just serve chilled or over crushed ice.
