All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Color- Even if this had been freshly colored, which the aroma will definitely tell you it's not, I would not have rated it a 5; too light and thin.



Louche- The best part, relatively speaking, of this absinthe; builds slowly from the bottom but quickly washes out and becomes weak.



Aroma- Before the addition of water... alcohol (like vodka); after the addition of water... cloying sweetness.



Flavor- Overly sweet, some light bitterness, but mainly just sickly sweet.



Finish- Better mouth-feel than I would expect but not great, some tongue numbing, the lasting taste is not good.



Overall- I would never pay money for this absinthe; in fact I would recommend that no one does.
