Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Retired Brands
Color: Clear and without sediment, no hues or slight glow that I like to see in blanches but a very correct and nice color nonetheless.

Louche: Slow, almost like watching watery bombs drop into oil. Surprisingly decent thickness when done with a very slight blue tint.

Aroma: Smells like wormwood. Maybe a tiny bit of the other herbs, which are there since it did louche, but not exactly a balanced smell, at all.

Flavor: A.a. BOMB! How did this louche? Not bad being intentionally a wormwood bomb, in fact very tasty wormwood. Not something I'd drink everyday, but if it were still produced I'd keep a bottle in my cabinet.

Finish: Warms up and numbs well but fades a bit quickly before anything else can happen.

Overall: Very good at what it is supposed to be. Nothing I'd drink every day but a good reminder of what wormwood tastes like. I like this blanche quite a bit despite having to give it a low score for what it is obviously meant to be. If rounded out a bit it could make a very good wormwood forward blanche.
