All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
This is a very good glass of absinthe. Very good anise and a nice complexity. The Wormwood lingers in the background (perhaps too much in the background?) allowing other flavors to play on the palate. Nice mouthfeel initially but becomes a little thin as the glass wears on. The color is a little dingy which makes for a less than sparkling louche but it is nice enough. There is a touch of a cloying flavor that compelled me to markdown the finish but after a few moments, I reconsidered...the finish is very pleasant (although the cloying flavor remains when I take another sip).

I enjoyed this absinthe very much. It is not necessarily a remarkable absinthe but perfectly drinkable and I am delighted to finish my glass.
