“Extra-aged Yellow Chartreuse. Prickly scents of bramble, fennel, and licorice are followed by a supple sweetness. Palate is floral, with sage, saffron, elderberry, anise, licorice, flowers, and thyme. Finishes elegantly, softer and divinely satisfying.”

"Extra-aged Yellow Chartreuse. The color is sunshine gold; impeccable purity. The first inhalations encounter prickly scents of bramble/vines, fennel, and licorice; extra time in the glass brings out a supple sweetness that perfectly assimilates the herbal/ brambly, saffron-like thrusts of the early-on aroma. The palate entry is sharply focused on a floral sweetness; the mid-palate profile has so many layers of botanicals that it’s hard to list them all, but they include sage, saffron, elderberry, anise, licorice, flowers, and thyme. Finishes elegantly, even stately as the sweetness of the entry becomes softer, more bittersweet, herbal, and divinely satisfying. A step-up from the standard Yellow, which is re-evaluated in the SJ Retaste Section."

"Chartreuse VEP Green and Chartreuse Yellow: Perhaps the greatest digestifs ever conceived. The Green version, at 110 proof, is extra potent. The Yellow version, at 80 proof, is less demanding, but equally effective." -- F. Paul Pacult

Intense herbal aromas, with vanilla, citrus rind and a beautiful floral note. Hot and spicy on the palate, with a multitude of flavors, including vanilla, anise, cardamom, white pepper and herbs; incredibly complex, persistent finish.
