All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
A beautiful peridot before louche. After louche it is a pleasant pale lime green with tinges of blue.

The louche is a well developed cloud with a thin peridot line dissipating after about a third of the glass. I used a fountain at a slow drip..Excellent.

Aroma is a fore of anise with a back mint tinge..the grape base is really apparent and quite nice..

The flavor is an apparent grape spirit in the fore, leading into mint, with anise, and citrus, with slight grassy notes. This is definitely an enjoyable Absenta, a delicious Spanish. It has a light wormwood taste that is softened by the grape spirit. The mint, and citrus, are excellent. I did note a hint of candied plum.

It’s finish, is creamy, and smooth. Mint and wormwood in the finish keep the sweet flavors from the grape and anise balanced. It is lasting and leaves a pleasant and mild numbness on your tongue.

Overall, I enjoyed this Spanish Absenta very much. It was refreshing and balanced. I really enjoyed the balance and grape base of this Absenta. I would recommend Obsello to those who enjoy an excellent Spanish or those who would try Spanish for a first time.
