All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Despite being given the opportunity of tasting all the previous St. Antoine versions, the latest one, i.e. #7 seems to capture all the glorious moments in its history. St. Antoine stands fast on its position of the most accurate absinthe hailing from Czech Republic. End of story.

Colour is not as vivid as in previous batches, slightly on the pale green side

Louche is ideal, that is all I can say

Aroma is composed of veronica upfront-in the vein of the premiere batches, good measure of anise, , very herbaceous

Flavour is slightly minty, not heavy, dry and smooth the same time. Wormwood and mint, or melissa get very prominent, but veronica is far away, the finish with coriander and anise. Has chamomile been removed-is the question that comes to my mind. Martin has kindly explained that it was lowered only.

All in all, everything that was supposed to be done in the realm of St. Antoine verte, has been done. Time for a blanche. Now!
