Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Rocky

    Nose: The resemblance to the Elixir Végétal is immediately obvious, but with the intensity toned down. Mint, caraway and basil stand out.

    Palate: As with the nose, it’s a toned-down version of the original recipe, with an enticing mintiness.

    Finish: Medium in length with the mint joined by sweet eucalyptus. Comment: Chartreuse Green is very similar to mixing Elixir Végétal with sugared water, but without the same pungency.

    Serving suggestion: A versatile liqueur, add one part to nine parts Fentimans Tonic Water for a refreshing summer drink, or add a couple of teaspoons to a mug of hot chocolate for a winter warmer.

    Amazing drink, just been introduced to this and it is fabulous. On our second bottle. Mix it with orange juice and ice. Terrific.

    I am on to my second bottle now. Awhile back a French friend of mine told me that the French use it as a fore-cure for a wide variety of ailments. He said if he feels like he is about to get sick (cold/stomach etc) he takes a tablespoon, slowly letting it drip down his throat. The next day its gone or the symptoms minimized. So i tried it and wow, let me tell you it certainly worked for me. It was exactly as he said it was. Most times the symptoms vanished or i didn't get as sick or it lasted perhaps 3 or 4 days. Maybe its a placebo effect or perhaps it really does work but all I can say is I am hooked and I heartily recommend it. Give it a shot!

    By the second glass, everyone falls in love with this drink. I like it neat, but it's surprisingly nice mixed with Scotch and sweet vermouth: the Jacobite.

    It is like ambrosia - the drink of the gods.

    Have experienced this liqueur several time while skiing in the French Alps. Hot chocolate drink with Chartreuse (in it or separately with it) seems to be a popular local speciality. I have not seen it served this way anywhere else, but would recommend it. It certainly adds that 'je ne sais quoi' to the chocolate making a unique hot drink

    Wonderful drink! Was first introduced to it in south of France aged 16 on PGL canoeing holiday in 1971!! Can't get enough of it now! Nothing can touch it.100/100!

    The Last Word: Prohibition Era Cocktail: Equal Measures Green Chartreuse, Good Gin (I reccommend Tanqueray Export Strength, Fresh Lime Juice (from a piece of fruit - not out of a bottle!!!!) and Maraschino Liqueur) shake over ice until your hands freeze to the shaker and then shake some more (very important) and pour into a chilled martini glass. Very tasty.

    Looking forward to rediscovering the excellent digestive effects & very complex herbal flavours. Not all grannies are knocked out by it, let alone great grannies!

    Once in Argentina, I had a couple of cocktails made with this stuff. The recipe was basically Chartreuse mixed with a 'dash' of pineapple juice, shaken and served in a Martini glass. EXCELLENT STUFF!!!

    Try bruleeing this a touch with a chef's blow torch - it really brings out the drink's character which can be overwhelmed by the alcohol

    I have loved this drink for years and it goes well poured over vanilla icecream. An amazing drink.

    A riproaringly brilliant drink. A family favourite for decades (apart from my mother-in-law, who took weeks to recover from merely taking a sip ;o)

    A fantastic drink, powerful with very interesting flavours. As far as i know it used to be a digestif, but i find it's a mighty drink for a night out!
