What is the story of Absinthe Jade PF 1901?

Absinthe PF 1901 is a tribute to what is the best known and most widely sampled pre-ban Absinthe: Pernod Fils. PF 1901 takes its name from the year in which the original Pernod Fils distillery in Pontarlier caught fire. When the distillery was rebuilt and repaired, out-dated alembics were replaced by the most modern equipment of the time. The old alembics were either destroyed by the fire and sold for scrap or sold off to smaller distilleries. The Combier Distillery purchased two of these 1100 liter stills and installed them along with the 8 smaller stills which had been a part of the distillery since 1894. The importance of this history and especially the authenticity of these two circa 1870's alembics were not overlooked when Ted Breaux chose the Combier Distillery in which to make Jade vintage Absinthes clones. PF 1901 is a classic Absinthe, balanced and crisp, with an appetizing herbal aroma and a smooth, lingering aftertaste. It should be noted that a large cache of pre-ban Pernod fils Absinthe has recently been discovered and amongst the well-preserved bottles, there were a few in a remarkable state of preservation, retaining their original color and freshness. Those who have been fortunate enough to have been able to taste these and have also tasted the pre-release Jade PF 1901, are unanimous in their remarks as to the striking similarities between the vintage bottles and the Jade clone.

Per not
Ok the sunburn flavor and the maybe the dried up liquor causes the sample used to base this absinthe on is a bit heavy on the star anise, the sunburn overshadows everything. this may represent a real sample of pernod from 1901, but this does not make a good absinthe, or a good sample used.
I really like the combier blanchette apparently used as a base, but i think this does not represent a pernod fils from the specified era.
This absinthe tastes like blanchette (or like any jade absinthe) with added herbs.
Too much anise, no body, heavy wine alcohol.
Having at least drank some Pernod Fils Tarragana,I can say it does taste very similar.Aged liquor of most any good brand will definitely taste better.This tastes perhaps a bit more raw,but is quite passable.I will always have a bottle of this & the Jade Edouard on my bar.Ordering 2 more now.
