This monastic liqueur commemorates 1605, when Marshal François Hannibal d'Estrées, presented the Carthusian monks of Paris with a recipe for an 'Elixir of Life'. Four hundred years later, in 2005, this rendition of the original recipe, bottled at 56% was first released.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 07/08/2012

Appearance

Clear, emerald/olive green.

Aroma

Herbaceous and slightly earthy/peaty with pungent peppery alcohol, pine, aniseed and crushed mint leaves and faint basil.

Taste

Get beyond the alcohol punch (we’ve reduced to approx. 43%) and you’ll find this green coloured liqueur has an equally verdant flavour. Very fresh minty herbal palate with aniseed, gentian and génépi. Lighter in sugar than other Chartreuse offerings.

Aftertaste

Lingering minty herbal leafy freshness. Fades with celery notes.
