I'm giving the Absinthe Duplais high marks. It's a clean, crisp, and very satisfying absinthe that is lovely to behold.

It begins a gorgeous deep shade of peridot, and louches to a very attractive jade. All the expected visuals (heavy "oil trails," etc) are present, and seem to proceed at the correct rate. The aroma is very medicinal before water, but the louche releases a lovely scent: fresh, herbal, and crisp.

The flavor and finish are both quite good, with the dominant impression being a clean, herbal flavor and subtle, lingering bitterness. To me, this absinthe is more "herbal" than "spicy," but there is no trace of unwanted grassiness.

This is one I'll definitely buy again.
