All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Batch 22 Bottle 50/60

Appearance; neat-light gold,white grapes. Louched-milky,maybe a hint of pink edges. Very cream colored.

Louche; thick wispy oil trails clouding from the bottom up. Very thick at 3/1 no translusence at all.

Aroma; Neat- Hibiscus, clean light grain alcohol, vanilla, nice, not harsh.
During louche- Powerful, very absinthy, wormwoody and slightly floral, faint tarragon. Nicely done. Balanced. soft and floral

Flavor; Peppery and floral, dry with a citrus and tarragon bite.
Mouthfeel; very silky, powdery.

Finish; Dry, slightly bitter and lasting with a noticable tingle on the back and sides of the tongue

Overall; well its definitely absinthe. Could do without the tarragon and hibiscus i believe. Wish it was a verte. Doesn't really leave you looking for the next glass but drinkable and not unpleasant. It has possibilities if it wasn't a rouge.
