Although the colour is natural, it is straw, so nothing in the range of absinthe tinges.

Starts like burnt sienna then develops a whitish, beige louche. Not bad, surprisingly the colour of the louched Segarra is very warm, hence pleasant to look at.

Although its herb-bill is as limited as possible, the aroma is a feast for the senses.

Flavour is pastis-alike and for my palate too heavy at times. Unlike in absentas, wormwood upfront, without the obstrusiveness of citrusy or anisy nuances.

Overall, it is much better than regular absentas like Deva or Montana, what not. On the other hand, it needs the herb-bill to be enhanced and the price to be lowered-note, it is just a mere 45%!

Not the absenta you know

I have to penalize the color severely because it was yellow. As I understand it it's due to being aged in oak barrels, but regardless it is a flaw. Once you get past that however, it's a pleasant drink that I enjoyed and would have again without any reservations. My friend claims it has benefited from a year of aging, I can only assume that would be true, as this is the first time I've tried Segarra. Certainly not one of the better absinthes I've had, but certainly not too shabby either. An acceptable middle shelf product IMO.
