Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: Flawlessly clear

Louche: Pure white cloud, with a bluish hue in the light.

Aroma: Sweet and floral, with the wormwood drawing you in. Airy and fresh, with a nice pull of anise. Slightly complex; enough to hold your attention. I find it very refreshing.

Flavor: Upfront wormwood, with a nice, sweet sensation from anise, followed by fennel. Flowery perfume goodness, which closes in a nice pleasant bitterness that does not overwhelm. Overall juicy, and quite enjoyable.

Finish: There is wormwood here also in the finish. As it holds on to the taste buds, the other savory herbs cause a tingle on the tongue, that grabs you, and slowly recedes into a sweet and slightly bitter linger.

It is poetic how these flavors come together on the palate. A distinguished experience for all the senses. This absinthe is highly rated for a reason.
