Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Color: No visible defect.

Louche: Very slow to louche, but finishes nicely. Opaque with hints of blue and even some yellow.

Aroma: Crisp wormwood and sweet anise with just a touch of alcohol heat.

Flavor: Spicy with a bit of heat at 3:1. Anice and wormwood balance out nicely. Nothing really stands out though. I'm left a bit disappointed with the lack of complexity.

Finish: Wormwood and light anise. The spiciness lingers, but not much flavor.

Overall, it's a decent blanche. While I'd wish it success, the US has a bit of a 'blanche glut', so I don't see many people being intrigued enough to buy a bottle unless they add it to an order they are already placing. There's not really anything to complain about with it, but there's not much to praise either.
