Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Color: A very nice green with a slight yellowy paleness.

Louche: Wild oil storms and slow layering, turning into oranges and minty green, eventually ending in a very creamy and pale luminescent "minty" white. Beautiful and perfect.

Aroma: Neat, this is sweet and spicy. After the louche it fills the room. There's a really lovely and complex overtone of anise, but still maintains it's spiciness and has a good deal of warm wormwood scent.

Flavor: Wonderfully balanced, round and smooth, yet still deeply spiced.

Finish: Confectioner's sugar and licorice on the finish, nice and lingering and a bit mouth-numbing. Very fresh.

Overall: I like this one quite a bit, as far as to say it's excellent. I like the alcohol level of this one, and I really enjoy the slight boozy flavor. I do wish it were slightly more complex.
