Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Color: Unlike some bottles that I've seen with a yellow tinge to them, this bottle was clear and bright with no visible sediment.

Louche: Very well formed and thick. Deep and milky opalescence with just a hint of blueish hue. Very inviting.

Aroma: Nice, refreshing alpine aroma. The wormwood comes out well, and the anise plays a great supporting role.

Flavor: At first sip, the wormwood is prominant with vegetal undertones. The anise is well balanced and not cloying. Overall, the blending of the herbs creates a very nice marriage of sweetness and bitterness.

Finish: Clean and crisp with an enjoyable lingering taste of wormwood.

Overall: This is a very nice blanche. Whenever I am in the mood for a blanche, this is the first one I think of.
