Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: An attractive light green.

Louche: Nicely built with a delicate milkiness. Inviting.

Aroma: Very nice herbal aroma slightly dominated by sweet anise.

Flavor: Quite sweet but counterpointed with a bite reminiscent of white pepper. Enjoyable, but a bit simplistic.

Finish: Finish is 'ok', but not overly enjoyable. There was a strange touch of what I can only describe as the aftertaste you get when you try artificial sweetener. However, it was barely there. Hardly perceptable.

Overall: An enjoyable absinthe. I don't know if I'd go out on a limb to buy a new bottle, but I'd never turn down a glass if offered to me.
