All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
This absinthe was reviewed on 1/31/11. Water was hand-poured from a pitcher and one sugar cube was used.

Appearance: Crystal clear and brilliant; free of any particulate matter or floaters

Louche: Nearly opaque, opalescent, attractive, not too thick

Aroma: Lots of wormwood and an earthy animale scent that I find present in better absinthes; sweet herbs, very room-penetrating

Flavor: Strong presence of wormwood, a nice amount of spice, these flavors flow into sweet fennel and anise

Finish: Medium length, continued sweetness and spice on the tongue

Overall: A very solid, pleasant blanche with plenty of wormwood character and spiciness. I would consider this a go-to blanche for regular consumption in my household.
