Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
The color is very pale, almost non-existent - somewhere between straw and emerald. The louche is very quick, oil trails are present, but there is no line of separation, nor any apparent method to the louche. The nose is fragrant, almost minty, but smells strongly of alcohol. The taste is hot, alcohol forward, with the mintiness continuing. The bitterness is pleasant, but what immediately takes over is the tongue-numbing effect. The finish is extremely short, with only the bittnerness lingering.



The overall impression one gets is that this is a young product, too quickly rushed to market. Perhaps future batches will prove fuller and less imperious.
