Wormwood Society Editor Comments
Those reading the description should note that much of it is misinformation that has for years been used by others looking to cash in on the mistique of absinthe.

Editor reviews

Appearance: I know it's meant to be a reproduction of a vintage brand, so we should expect a dead leaf color, but it's more yellowish than fuille morte.

Louche: Louche builds nicely. Decent opalescence. End color isn't very appetizing, but it's not terrible.

Aroma: Appealing aroma. Lots of anise and other medicinal herbs. Quite fresh.

Flavor: Quite bitter. Hot an unbalanced at 3:1. At 4:1 the heat goes away, but everything else other than bitterness now tastes watered down.

Finish: Not much other than an unpleasant bitterness. Not as acrid as something like Stromu, but not really drinkable for me.

Overall: The louche and aroma work well, but then the rest falls apart. Needs major work.
