Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Color: Very pretty. It's not too yellow or dark, but a pure, clean peridot.

Louche: Turbulent and rolling. Once it's fully louched, it becomes creamy and lovely with peach-gold reflections.

Aroma: Pre-louched strongly of coriander, but was greatly lessened when louched. Not too strong and not particularly room-filling. Sweet and balanced.

Flavor: Good. Great even. The flavor is executed very well...I feel like each sip tasted wonderful, each bringing on a new flavor to contemplate and explore. I certainly can't find any complaints regarding the flavor.

Finish: Warm and spicy, herbal and very fresh, with a lingering mintyness.

Overall: The more I drink this, the more I'm impressed. I tend to pour myself a glass and after a sip or two, I have to sit back and go "wow, this is really nice." I always avoid sugar because I enjoy the flavor of absinthe without it, but I was curious to try this absinthe with a little sugar: it's full-on, indulgent, naughty good.
