Given the summer 08 market for absinthe in the US, I really can't recommend this brand enough, especially given it's the price/volume. The taste is very mild, but full. It finishes nicely, almost like a good wine. The aroma is very pleasant, but light, almost like there is something more to the drink, but my sense of smell is damaged. This one also has the nicest louche of the US-available brands.



I myself am partial to the blanches, and this ranks up there with La Clandestine. I also would recommend this brand to anyone that is new to absinthe. It's balanced flavor should give you a good feel for whether this drink is for you.
