All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
I obtained a sample of this absinthe from the Rue Verte AbsinthExplore set.

Color: Clear with no visible flaws

Louche: VERY quick to form. Deep and thick, with a white film left on the glass after drinking.

Aroma: Intriguing with hints of peppermint and wormwood.

Flavor: Light but crisp and clean and enjoyable. The mintiness doesn't come over into the flavor, which is made up mainly of anise and wormwood. Fairly well balanced.

Finish: Clean and lingering but a bit hot. Quite a bit of numbing.

Overall: Not bad. Nothing outstanding, but definitely one of the better offerings from the Lemercier distillery.
