Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: A nice and clear peridot green. Slightly on the yellow side and just a tad thin but not much.

Louche: This is an absinthe that can handle a “power-louche”. The final result is definitely on the thick side but otherwise correct.

Aroma: The fennel seems to pop a bit more than usual as well as some mint and citrus notes. A slight bit of peppery nuance is also balanced with the usual trinity leaving a very intriguing result.

Flavor: Wormwood, anise and fennel do battle right up front exchanging dominance in flavor, Melissa, mint and coriander aren't too far behind though. The texture is creamy yet piqued with peppery notes and a delightful bitterness. A compelling and strong absinthe. Not weak in any aspect at all.

Finish: The anise comes out a bit more with a slight bitterness ending the finish but it doesn't change too much from the original flavor and stays relatively strong as well.

Overall: This is a wonderfully complex and strong absinthe. It is up front with no apologies; an absinthe for absinthe lovers. Not for those wanting weird flavors or something tame at all.
