Editor reviews

I bought Deva back in 1997, when I was living in Madrid. Many of my Spanish friends drank it, so I picked up a bottle for nostalgic purposes. Most people there don't drink it like a traditional absinthe. That's probably for the best, since it doesn't really taste like one.

Color is a clean, bright, artificial radioactive green. Even 10 years later...

The louche is very thick and oily and stays around forever, but is inappropriately thick, I think.

The aroma is heavily antiseptic with a bit of underlying funk. It will clear out your sinuses. The fennel appears a bit when it's louched up.

The taste is clean and crisp, but BURNS on the way down. Not an unpleasant taste, but the afterburn knocks it down a few pegs.

All in all, another typical bitter Spanish Absinthe. I wouldn't recommend it as a proper absinthe. If anything, just use this one in mixed drinks.
