Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Color: Just a shade darker than the original. Quite inviting.

Louche: Looks pretty much the same as the original, not surprisingly. Very attractive. The final product is much lighter than one might expect.

Aroma: Spicy and woody, but herbal and sweet at the same time.

Flavor: The wormwood gets spicier, but the anise is toned down a bit, compared to the original. Everything gets an added layer of 'bourbony' woodiness.

Finish: The wood is a bit intense in the finish, but it's still enjoyable.

Overall: I think it needs a bit of time to rest in the bottle to let some things round out. I'll give it a few months and try it again. My guess is that it's going to be much improved, although it's still good now.
