All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
The coloring is almost clear, with a very slight yellow tinge that I didn't mind. Once louched, the yellow tinge was gone and the absinthe took on a nearly perfect louche similar to that of other Blanche absinthes I have tried.



The flavor is where I had the biggest problem, I just couldnt get it right. Without sugar, I found it overly bitter and not enjoyable at all, even when diluted very thin. With sugar, it takes on an overly sweet candy like flavor that I didnt care for either (this was with just one sugar cube).



Maybe I had a tainted bottle, but I really didnt care for Blachette. It wasn't horrible, but I definitely rank it the lowest among the authentic absinthes I have tried and it is not something I will purchase again. I drank it with very high expectations, given the experience I have had with Breaux's products and the awards this absinthe has won. I really tried to enjoy it, but I just couldnt.
