Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Color: Extremely clear, it is hard to tell where it is if you use an ornate glass with any horizontal lines. In the sunlight there is a blue tint towards the top.

Louche: Amazing oil trails, easily becoming my favorite louche so far. Blue-purple hues erupt mid-louche. Clouds up well and without hesitation. Strong and thick when done and displays rainbow hues slightly in the sunlight.

Aroma: Very floral smell. Peppery up front and complex but a bit on the light side.

Flavor: Surprise! Smooth and very complex. Floral flavors in front with traditional absinthe flavors right up behind them. Some spicy tones hit the back of the mouth well. Very complex, bold and balanced. A blanche with some flavor and complexity, well done!

Finish: Spices up a bit at first and lasts a long time. Numbs quite well and lasts a long time. Slightly sweeter at the end than the beginning. Relaxing.

Overall: Favorite Blanche hands down. Very complex and bold. Not simple as most blanches tend to be. This is a very well crafted drink and holds an amazing flavor profile.
