This absinthe is all about one thing: featuring wormwood. Man, did it deliver.

Louche: Understandably, there wasn't much louche at all.

Aroma: HUGE Pontarlier Wormwood aroma. If you need an example of what Pontalier WW smells like, this is as good as you'll find.

Flavor: Rich, smooth and creamy with not much more than the wonderful wormwood bitterness in play. Very clean and crisp. Sugar will help to bring out the other flavors, but I'd rather not!

Finish: The WW taste lasts forever.

Overall: It's certainly not a balanced absinthe, but it was never intended to be. This was a celebration of the flowery, minty goodness of Pontarlier wormwood. I'm just upset there won't be any more.
