Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Color
VERY pale green. Probably the palest absinthe I have tried.

Louche
Pretty up to 2:1 then fully clouded. It starts out and looks like it is going to layer well. It has a nice thick oil layer. At 4:1 it is opaque white with a bit of blue on the edges.

4:1 is my preferred ratio for this particular absinthe. Very little sugar is necessary.


Aroma
Very anise forward pre louche. No alcohol burn. The previous reviews indicate a earthy/vegetal note. This bottle has a creamy sweet aroma. I like it.


Flavor

Anise and wormwood. It spreads across the palette well. Nice coolness on the finish. Slightly bitter mid palette. The numbness is nice. It does build with each sip which makes me want to drink it faster.

Finish
The creaminess is still there on the finish. The numbness hits the tip of the tongue and lingers for quite some time.

Overall
Its a nice offering! It is VERY easy to drink. I would use this one to introduce someone to absinthe.
