All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Color is crystal clear, no discoloration or sediment. The Louche builds from the bottom and clouds to a very thick billow with blue tints. The color after water is white opaque, with blue highlights. The aroma before water is very floral, and herbal, with sweet tones. After water it really blossoms with the alpine floral that many of the better La Bleue absinthe’s portray. Tones of hyssop are present, with wormwood and anise developing. The mouth feel is thick, creamy and smooth. The taste is overall very rich, with strong sweet anise and wormwood notes in the finish.
This is definitely one to try if you like the La Bleue style absinthe. La Clandestine is one of the better commercial La Bleue’s.
