All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
The color is light peridot, crystal clear and stunning. The Louche has thick, expanding clouds that seem to move to their own pace, and then billowing into soft vibrant color. The color after water is a beautiful soft peridot green. The aroma before water is of a anise and herbal quality, with a enticing floral background. After water the glass explodes with notes of anise, fennel, and wormwood with a citrus tinge. Very balanced and floral. The mouth feel is thick, creamy and very smooth, with a pleasant numbing of the tongue at the end. The taste is of soft anise with a herbal floral sweetness, with slight hints of citrus. Excellent alpine meadow type association. This absinthe has a long finish with delicious wormwood balance.
This is a simply excellent absinthe. It is one of my top three commercial absinthe. Alpine meadow floral, soft, clean taste, with outstanding wormwood presence with an abundance of flavor. I would recommend without hesitation. Very impressive.
