Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: Very pleasant, light, bright peridot.

Louche: Opalescent and bright, with blue, yellow, white and green hues. A pleasure to look at.

Aroma: A very pleasing balance of sweet anise and spicy wormwood.

Flavor: Lightly sweet from the anise, but the astringency of the high quality wormwood is more pronounced. Night quite balanced, but minty, fresh, and very enjoyable.

Finish: Mostly wormwood on the tongue and throat. Herbaceous and assertive, and lingers quite a bit.

Overall: Very enjoyable and refreshing. Could be a bit more full in the flavor department (depth), but I'd certainly buy another bottle when mine runs out!
