All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
In enjoy this absinthe quite a bit. Color before louche is a more yellow shade of green and the scent is very much expected from something called "authentique". It louches up nicely and is a bit on the thicker side - but that is my preference. Lots of floral scents blossom from the louche and it is a more lengthy process than some others. The color, when louched, is surprisingly more green than the yellow-green cast upon the spirit when neat. It's very nice. The taste is very, very close to something like Jade PF1901 - this is the closest absinthe I can approximate the taste to. Great, solid mouthfeel with a good amount of numbing - with sensations lingering for some time afterwards. I realy do enjoy this extremely balanced and ultra-traditional absinthe from Emile Pernot!
