All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Crystal clear before louche like water. The louche itself is drab and quick, and too thick. Despite that it's an attractive pearl-white with bluish nuances. The aroma is fairly light and delicate. Anise is most noticeable, with a bit of floral wormwood. However, there's a weird smell that reminds me of the taste of aspirin tablets. The taste is also light and made of wormwood, anise, and fennel in that order. Floral and minty. Simple but tastes of quality ingredients. There's also a fruity flavour vaguely reminiscent of pineapple. It's a little on the thin side. The finish is wormwoody but short-lived. This is a nice, light absinthe that has a typical Val-de-Travers character.
