Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: Clear, with no sediment or haze.

Louche: Pure white with red/gold highlights when held up to the light, though it's slightly thicker than I would wish.

Aroma: Smooth and perfumey (somewhat reminiscent of the smell of the makeup remover I use), with candied flowers and wormwood, along with hints of fennel, and perhaps some anise. The fragrance isn't very strong though, I definitely have to really breathe it in.

Flavor/Mouthfeel: Very fresh and cool. Really nice balance, hints of spiciness and a wisp of peppery anise that's just right.

Finish: Not too lengthy, but full of juicy, crisp flavors of citrus and anise, and a nice tingle on my tongue without being overly deadening or heated.

Overall: This is a really lovely, very refreshing absinthe.
