All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
The color is green, bright and intense. A very good louche. It did not start immediately, it lingered at the bottom. It then swirled and floated, it went to the top leaving a line of un louched absinthe, and then became creamy and thick. This is quality absinthe. The aroma was of alpine herbs, with tinges of wormwood. Very good mouthfeel. Creamy and thick, more on the sides of the tongue. The taste is excellent. There is an overture alpine herbs with no single flavor standing out. I could taste the bitterness of the wormwood, anise and fennel, distinct and different, the citrus-like flavor was in perfect balance. The aftertaste lingered at the back of the mouth, an excellent wormwood finale.
This is one of the better Jades. A hard choice between the Verte Suisse and the Edouard.
