In 1605 François Hannibal d'Estrées, presented the recipe for an 'Elixir of Life' to the Carthusian monks. Using over 130 different herbs & spices, the recipe was so complex that it took the monks well over a century to figure it out - production was not begun at the monastery until 1737. This special edition Chartreuse was created in 2005, 400 years later, and is a recreation of the original recipe bottled at the slightly lower strength of 56%.Tasting Notes (1)
Tasting Notes by Rocky
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.
A liquid herb garden with basil, dill, aniseed, ginger, tarragon, eucalyptus and caraway – simply stunning.
Long, with a welcome minty freshness.
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.
This is the cleanest Chartreuse for me and doesn’t need anything adding. Eminently drinkable neat, just serve chilled or over crushed ice.
