All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
This is my new favorite commercial absinthe. Everything about it is incredibly appealing to me, from the medium peridot color, to its hyssop-y, violet-y aroma, and its creamy body, and rich mouth feel.

There is a genuine upper echelon HG quality to this absinthe which is very immediate in nature, and makes the drinker feel as though he (or she) is sitting down with Cheryl in her little distillery, and being treated to a special alchemical glass from her secret stash.

The vibrancy of this absinthe is quite remarkable, and the drinker is pulled in almost opposing directions (very sweet, and yet even more dry), and the especiallly floral aftertaste is quite remarkable, and created by the wonderful wonderful violet segueing into that fragrant, juicy Virginia wormwood.

What's even more amazing is that this wonder is only a few weeks old! I truly look forward to aging a couple of bottles to see if it can possibly improve even more...only time will tell the tale.
