Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: Clear and bright. Very inviting.

Louche: Attractive, but much thinner than the verte. Still very inviting.

Aroma: Very clean with nice earthy and rooty characteristics, presumably from the genepi. I love that aroma.

Flavor: Very nicely balanced between sweet, earthy, and spicy. Quite enjoyable. Sweet on the tip of the tongue, then as it warms in the mouth the earthiness comes out. Upon swalling, the spiciness is felt in the throat and sides of the tongue. Really nice.

Finish: Sweet anise and spicy coriander. I wish it would last a bit longer, but that's because it's so tasty.

Overall: As someone who's not really a blanche guy, i'm very impressed by this. An easy drinking absinthe that works as well on its own as it does in a cocktail.
