This absinthe is unique. The profile is completely different from any I've tasted before. There is hardly any bitterness, just a touch to balance things out. I won't get into specifics because two other better trained palates have already weighed in on this. I'll give the cliff notes version... It's delicious.



The color was quite nice and natural looking. The louche thick with lovely oil trails, morphed into an opalescent version of it's original color. I was nursing my second glass to the point where it even began to get slightly tepid, and the louche still didn't thin out a bit.



The best thing about this absinthe to me is the finish. It has a candy-like finish, leaves a taste in your mouth so delightful that you don't want to eat/drink anything else to ruin it. Stayed with me for hours after my last glass. One of the best I've ever experienced in this regard.



Good stuff, well done Hiram.
