Review Detail

 
All Product Reviews » Vintage Absinthe
Appearance: A beautiful citrine. No sediment.

Louche: Fully louched by about 1.5:1! It ends up a great amber/peach/pink rose color. Wonderfully opalescent.

Aroma: Lots of top quality anise with butterscotch and baby powder. Lots of wormwoody mintyness as well. Incredibly inviting.

Flavor: So smooth! Just a tad hot at 3:1, but just right at 3.5:1. Great anise flavor complimented by minty wormwood. No real discernible bitterness, but not really sweet either. Great balance.

Finish: Pleasant wormwood and anise linger much longer than I would have anticipated given its rather light profile. Again, very well balanced.

Overall: Fantastic stuff. Light and feminine, balanced and utterly enjoyable. An everyday type of profile that would appeal to any absinthe drinker.
