Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: A very deep, clear peridot. Quite attractive.

Louche: Odd, foamy bubbles around the edge of the glass. Not really a lot of louching at all. Very thin. Practically non-existant.

Aroma: Unlouched, the only real aroma you can detect is a huge wine base. Louched, the wine base is still there along with hints of green tea and lychee. It smells good, but not like absinthe.

Flavor: It kind of tastes like over-steeped green tea with lychee. Bitter and piney with no noticeable anise.

Finish: Hardly any to speak of. Tannic astringency.

Overall: There's nothing aside from the unlouched color that even remotely resembles absinthe. Lots of work needs to be done. It's almost as if they used a Czech brand as an example.
