Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Color: A nice, grassy green, but not too green. I think it might be a little light, but it's definitely natural.

Louche: The louche is a little fast and thin (thinness definitely noticeable in the mouth,) but a pretty pearly greenish-blue.

Aroma: Chocolatey sweet, with a very fresh anise scent, fennel, and a little bit of wormwood at the end.

Flavor: I can't quite place the "green" flavor that it has, and there's a hint of soil and earthiness, with some wormwood near the end.

Finish: Nice and fresh, lingering for a little while, with a pleasing flavor.

Overall: This is something I'd rank into my "everyday" type of absinthes. It's not particularly complex or interesting, but it's not at all unpleasant or undrinkable. Definitely a good jumping off point for someone interested in trying absinthe or looking for an introduction to Matter-Luginbühl products. It's not one that I'm hugely excited about, now that I've shifted to much more complex products, but definitely good to have around the house.
