Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: A fresh and clear chartreuse color. It is bright, clean, and natural.

Louche: Just slightly thick pale green. Blue hues at the edges but otherwise not too much nuance here.

Aroma: Very citrusy and fennel smelling up front. The floral wormwood is blended in the background almost as a structural tone underneath everything. A bit simple and weak smelling but correct and pleasant.

Flavor: A smooth mouthfeel that leads with fennel and wormwood taste. Surprising spice tones also show up and the citrus comes late to round out the flavor. The anise is fresh, sweet, and medium in intensity. Overall this absinthe is light in the mouth not feeling heavy or dense at all.

Finish: Citrus pepper and sweetness all ramp up with a decent numbing effect as well. The duration is a bit longer than average.

Overall: Another well crafted absinthe from Emile Pernot. Not as bold nor as flavorful as some of his other absinthes but it is still intriguing.
