Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Colour: pleasant to look at, striving towards Duplais’ jaune, could be darker or getting amber.



Louche: decent, slowly-forming but ends up too chalky and whitish.



Aroma: strong, funky at times, anisy



Flavour: spicy, balanced but not creamy, lacks initial wormwood attack.



Finish: too spicy, gets a bit blunt towards end.



Overall: apart from louche-action there is no resemblance to Pernod fils whatsoever. That batch from which the sample has been given to me lacks definitely something.
