The colour before water is beautiful peridot with a subtle hint of blue. There's a slight haze, but it's otherwise perfect. The aroma is fruity and grassy. Strong colouring herb aroma and lots of anise. Grapey. (Just looked and discovered that it has a grape base, no surprise.)

After louche it's slightly thin, but still good. Opalescent green-yellow. Nice red and orange refraction. Now the aroma is dominated by unmistakable grape base. Powdery, good anise.

The flavour is very sweet and fruity, with a good balance of the herbs. Lots of citrus, perhaps a bit of spiciness. A bit of medicinal camphor, but well in balance.

There's a long and fruity finish. It's a bit numbing but not too bad. Fades into medicinal wormwood.

This is a very refreshing, enjoyable absinthe. The perfect thing to sip on a warm, summer afternoon.

I like Spanish Absentas so I was excited to finally get a chance to taste Obsello. The aroma immediately reminded me of other modern and vintage absentas I've had the pleasure of drinking. It is a fond memory filled with anise and melissa. I was hoping to find a greener color (similar to the Obsello advertising photos) but it was barely green, leaning to more of a straw. The color is a minor preference.

I like Obsello. It is a very good absinthe that (to me) captures the essence of Spanish Absenta, rising above all the current offerings and closely approaching the vintage.

I was very excited to try this absinthe, having a soft spot in my heart for Spanish absentas. The newest version, which I received on 9/24/08 is a dramatic improvement to the first release I tasted.



Color: A vibrant, attractive peridot green.



Louche: Very nice looking louche, building well, and ending thick and attractive.



Aroma: Floral and sweet with a nice hint of anise. The wormwood is somewhat subdued, but not in a bad way.



Flavor: The flavor is much more light and refreshing than the original Spanish offering. I really enjoy it. The anise is pleasantly sweet. Not cloying at all. The wormwood plays a nice supporting role, adding a light bitterness with pairs nicely with the mint. The mint is subtle, just lending a bit more assertiveness to the wormwood.



Finish: Here's where we see the most dramatic improvement. The finish is sweet and lingers in the back of your mouth. Again, just a touch of wormwood. I can see where they would call this a 'feminine' absinthe. This isn't an absinthe I'd turn to on a cold winter's night. It's more something I'd either drink in the summer, or with a meal.



Overall: It's nice to see an absinthe that Spain can proudly call their own. This is worthy of being in anyone's collection.

I like this absinthe very much. The affordability of it, the flavor, the base, everything.

Straight from the bottle the color is a very deep green, stemmy or leaf like green-leaves that have been on a tree all summer long type green, dark and aged. Very nice! Clearly a verte when in an absinthe glass.

The louche is quick forming, at about 1:1 ratio. I always get a little weary with quick louches as they seem to dissipate before 4:1 or 5:1 ratios, but this louche holds and is nice and thick, but not too thick.

The straight aroma without water added is nicely alcoholic, like perfume, not harsh, but sweet and aromatic, herbal and grassy. Not like a freshly cut lawn, but like a field after an afternoon rainstorm. After water it is subdued and the sweeter notes open up. Very nice, very refreshing and relaxing!

The flavor is an odd mix. Wormwood, lemon, anise, some vanilla undertones are there, but they're almost all overpowered by a very floral rose like flavor that comes in from the back and dominates the finish. For me, it's very similar to the dominant flavor in Germain-Robin's absinthe blanche. I have no idea what this flavor is, perhaps vanilla, perhaps lemon verbena or rose-geranium. It's a mellowing and very floral flavor. It's almost too much and almost dominates all of the other flavors, and could easily have done so had there been a little more, but it is just enough to be noticed without demanding attention.

The finish begins with the receding mystery floral flavor, and what lingers is a pleasant lemon/wormwood mix. The characteristics of the wormwood are all the right ones, pleasantly tangy but not bitter. The lemony like finish that exists is also nice but not overly acidic. There are some earthy undertones in the back of the mouth that I think are lingering from the mystery floral/rose geranium like flavor.

Overall, this is a great absinthe, great quality and consistency for the price. The flavor is a little unbalanced, but I like that in the occasional absinthe, and the flavor profile of this absinthe is quite nice. I would hardly change it at all.

Color: Obsello starts with a natural green color that is strong and solid. The color may be a bit on the yellow side.

Louche: This Spanish absinthe louches with a milky swirl and no oil trails. There is a blueish hue to the whiter parts of the louche which I couldn't figure out. The overall louche settles evenly, but a bit quickly.

Aroma: This absinthe filled the room quickly just upon opening the bottle. After water is added the wormwood really starts to stand out. The aroma of Obsello is still a bit strong even with water added. There are some other herbs noticeable if you can get past the standouts of anise and wormwood.

Flavor: The grape spirits leave Obsello naturally sweet with no sugar needed at all. The traditional big three herbs of anise, fennel, and wormwood are out in force, although some other herbs are just a little noticeable. This is an extremely pleasant drink but not as complex as I would like my absinthe. There is a little bite at first with a 1:4 ratio, but experimenting with other ratios left this too light or too strong for my taste, but not drastically different.

Finish: The other herbs of this drink come out just a bit more during the finish but not enough to really make things more complex. The finish sweetens up as well, maybe too much. My tounge felt pleasingly warm and barely numb.

Overall: Obsello is wonderful and would be great for a sweet-absinthe occasion. I would prefer more complexity, slower louche, a tad less aroma, and maybe less of a sweet rush in the finish.

Color: Deeply colored, very natural. Slightly more yellow than green, with an impressively dark tint.

Louche: Louched fairly thickly with pretty gold and pale blueish tones, ending with a creamy, mustardy color. Nicely opaque, definitely a interesting color...near turquoise in parts.

Aroma: The scent practically jumps out of the bottle, room-filling when poured but greatly lessened when water was added. Some faint anise and bitter notes, but mostly sweet and vanilla scented.

Flavor: I feel like the wormwood in this is what's been missing in my life all this time. Wonderfully bitter and warm, quite sweet with a hint of a sour, citrus edge.

Finish: The finish more than makes up for the lack of balance in the flavor. The taste finally rounds out, evolving into something very, very tasty. If I went too long without taking another drink, I found myself wondering, "why do I have this delicious flavor in my mouth" and then remembered I had a glass to finish.

Overall: This absinthe is delicious, but balanced it is not. I've found that it also has a very small window for tasting just right...it's very easy to overwater. I think I settled on what was very nearly a 1:3.5 ratio.

Color: Nice dark olivey green. Perfectly clear and natural looking.

Louche: Louche came on very fast but was thick and dense. Amber and gold highlights with light olive green. The liquid in the glass now looks thick and creamy just like in the old pictures. 4
Aroma: Lemony and floral. Minty spice. Anise is very present but not overpowering. Very citrusy and unique.

Flavor: Right off the bat its mint and lemon. Very refreshing but perhaps a bit overpowering. Anise is there but wormwood is difficult to detect. To me wormwood has a slight mentholated with mild bitterness flavor so the mint could be masking the wormwood. There is another flavor in there that is difficult to put my finger on. It reminds me of Agwa a coca leaf liqueur and perhaps not too far off from tea. It’s not a bad flavour just untraditional for an absinthe. It tastes very good but I will give it a 3 due to the fact that mint and lemon are the predominant flavours.

Finish: This is where the wormwood shows up. Finish is light (a bit thin perhaps) but also smooth, fresh and crisp. Slight bitterness from the wormwood and slight tongue numbing from the anise. The bitterness and mint linger for a while but not in an unpleasant way. A very good finish overall. Smooth, fresh and crisp.

Overall: This is one of best absinthes to come out of Spain. It is distilled from grape spirits and is naturally coloured. Compared to other authentic absinthes it has a very unique flavour profile. It is very refreshing. A perfect absinthe for sitting outside in the early evening of a hot summer day. I could also see this being used in cocktails that call for mint or mint liqueur. I want to give some extra points here for the value of this absinthe. For the money it is an excellent absinthe. Even someone with a college budget could afford to always have a bottle on hand.

Edited after over a year of sampling, from 3 bottles.
4:1 and 3:1 no sugar. Good both at dilutions


Color: A medium yellow with a slight touch of green, but was just a bit hazy.
Revist: after half a year, it still has a lot of haze, and simply is not clear enough pre-louche. Louched, the color is quite nice. I'd have rated the color higher were it not cloudy neat.

Louche: It formed quickly and evenly. There was nice clouding as it built, and the final result was pretty and opalescent.

Aroma: Powerful sweet anise, and a flowery minty herbal profile. Very nice. Perhaps the highlight of this absinthe.

Flavor. Crisp and clean. A light dryness that is quite enjoyable. The Grape base has a light brandy-like quality that is tempered nicely by the trinity, which is well balanced.
I like it a lot, and it is a different take on absinthe than the French and Swiss styles. I hope to sample more Spanish absentas.

Finish: Nice and clean. All the elements roll around, tingle lightly, wrap themselves in a silkiness then fade to a light spicy citrus, always with the kiss of grape base in there.

I plan to keep it in stock in my arsenal. It is a solid absinthe, refreshing and tasty!

A beautiful peridot before louche. After louche it is a pleasant pale lime green with tinges of blue.

The louche is a well developed cloud with a thin peridot line dissipating after about a third of the glass. I used a fountain at a slow drip..Excellent.

Aroma is a fore of anise with a back mint tinge..the grape base is really apparent and quite nice..

The flavor is an apparent grape spirit in the fore, leading into mint, with anise, and citrus, with slight grassy notes. This is definitely an enjoyable Absenta, a delicious Spanish. It has a light wormwood taste that is softened by the grape spirit. The mint, and citrus, are excellent. I did note a hint of candied plum.

It’s finish, is creamy, and smooth. Mint and wormwood in the finish keep the sweet flavors from the grape and anise balanced. It is lasting and leaves a pleasant and mild numbness on your tongue.

Overall, I enjoyed this Spanish Absenta very much. It was refreshing and balanced. I really enjoyed the balance and grape base of this Absenta. I would recommend Obsello to those who enjoy an excellent Spanish or those who would try Spanish for a first time.

Colour is Too pale

Louche is too quick, but once upon a time for absenta it was a norm

After water, the colour is pleasant if whitish

Aroma is minty and nothing sadly else. It is not off-putting, but too flat.

tasting:
minty, a bit spicy, weakish, though not heavy-badiane stricken, Mint and anise, not a trace of wormwood.

Being not a fan of Spanish absenta, I won't be definitely a fan of Obsello, either

Edit:
After the night of re-visits, at 1:1 wormwood appears, hence some points shall be raised. Still, as much as it is pleasant and refreshing, it lacks complexity and the power. I will give it some time rest and we shall see.

Color: An ounce of Obsello poured into a glass results in a near-perfect peridot. After adding water to a 3:1 ratio, it is of course noticeably paler, but still pleasantly green. I'm surprised by how many people found it to be leaning heavily toward yellow or gold, as I simply saw a paler peridot after watering, but as with the louche (see below), this may depend partly on the light. There was no noticeable sediment and very little haziness.

Louche: Don't pour or drip your water too fast, or else you might miss the louche altogether. It arrives quickly, and disappears nearly as fast. While it's there, you'll mostly see billowy clouds, with the occasional tendril of cigarette-like smoke. Attractive blues and greens on my second attempt is what pushed the rating up to a 4 in this category, but you must have good lighting and a steady pour to find them.

Aroma: The scent of anise is prominent, but mint and a soft alcohol aroma are definitely present and not displeasing. As the water drip continues, the presence of the latter two recede somewhat, but the aroma remains crisp and refreshing.

Flavor: Obsello starts off as a well-balanced absinthe, with a medium-bitter wormwood taste that is softened by the grape neutral spirits and meshes nicely with the anise and fennel. Additional flavors that come through are mint, which is fairly prominent, and finally an aftertaste of citrus, which I would attribute largely to the melissa. Others noted having tasted vanilla and even a hint of candied plum, but I did not detect either of those two flavors. As I continued to drink, I found that the contrast between the two extremes of mintiness and bitterness made the flavor seem just slightly unbalanced and even a tad thin, like two strands of a previously thick rope being pulled apart in places. Keeping the water to absinthe ratio fairly low at 3:1 all but eliminated this effect, though.

Finish: The Obsello really shines in its finish, which is long and leaves a pleasant tingling and mild numbness on your tongue. By the time the palette of flavors recedes, the memory of it makes you want another sip.

Overall: I very much enjoyed this absinthe, and found it particularly refreshing here in late spring while the weather has been very warm. The taste is not completely balanced at all times, but the mild complexity is intriguing in a lazy afternoon sort of way, and the taste is interesting while the finish is crisp and invigorating.

I would definitely recommend it, particularly to those looking to try their second or third absinthe and are working their way up the bitterness scale after having tried Lucid or the equivalent (as I did).

A crisp taste with a brilliant finish

Color: An ounce of Obsello poured into a glass results in a near-perfect peridot. After adding water to a 3:1 ratio, it is of course noticeably paler, but still pleasantly green. I'm surprised by how many people found it to be leaning heavily toward yellow or gold, as I simply saw a paler peridot after watering, but as with the louche (see below), this may depend partly on the light. There was no noticeable sediment and very little haziness.

Louche: Don't pour or drip your water too fast, or else you might miss the louche altogether. It arrives quickly, and disappears nearly as fast. While it's there, you'll mostly see billowy clouds, with the occasional tendril of cigarette-like smoke. Attractive blues and greens on my second attempt is what pushed the rating up to a 4 in this category, but you must have good lighting and a steady pour to find them.

Aroma: The scent of anise is prominent, but mint and a soft alcohol aroma are definitely present and not displeasing. As the water drip continues, the presence of the latter two recede somewhat, but the aroma remains crisp and refreshing.

Flavor: Obsello starts off as a well-balanced absinthe, with a medium-bitter wormwood taste that is softened by the grape neutral spirits and meshes nicely with the anise and fennel. Additional flavors that come through are mint, which is fairly prominent, and finally an aftertaste of citrus, which I would attribute largely to the melissa. Others noted having tasted vanilla and even a hint of candied plum, but I did not detect either of those two flavors. As I continued to drink, I found that the contrast between the two extremes of mintiness and bitterness made the flavor seem just slightly unbalanced and even a tad thin, like two strands of a previously thick rope being pulled apart in places. Keeping the water to absinthe ratio fairly low at 3:1 all but eliminated this effect, though.

Color- Very natural. Close to a deep green with some tendencies towards gold. Some haziness is preventing a 5.

Louche- Gets cloudy really quickly and is quite thick until the louche is finished. I couldn’t see any oil trails and such but my lighting was kinda dark too.

Aroma- Essences of sweet anise and mint. It reminds me of mint gum. Some hints of tropical fruit and powdery overtones add some complexity.

Flavor- Great mixture of anise and tropical fruit notes right away. Wormwood towards the back of the tongue is paired with mint. That is a very nice combination. The mouth feel is pretty decent as well.

Finish- Fruity anise lingers for a long time. Wormwood bitterness sets in and again is paired with mint. Really quality finish.

Overall- Extremely drinkable absinthe. Very solid in all areas. It misses the “wow” factor but would be great as a “go-to” addition to the cabinet. A great summer absinthe as others here have stated. I’m thinking the mint notes may make this perfect to adding to a mojito? The price is right on this absinthe as well. Terrific value.

Notes- Minor complaint but I agree regarding the wax covering. It took me a while to chisel off the wax using a steak knife…. I just wanna drink it!

All tastings from a bottle opened four months ago, some glasses sugared, some without. All are carafe pours.

Color: While not unattractive, it doesn't seem entirely correct to me. It's more on the yellow side of things, with peridot as an accent, instead of the other way around. If there were more peridot, this would reach a 4.

Louche: Some gradients very early on, then some fun, stormy billows with a yellowish line sticking around until a little over 1:1. It almost missed a 4 because it was done so soon.

Aroma: I really like the aroma of Obsello. It has a different set of scents than I'm used to, this being my first absenta. I smell the mint, vanilla, and slight citrus that others have noted, in addition to the usual suspects.

Flavor: This has a light, clean flavor, with wormwood dialed back a little. As noted in other reviews, there is mint here, though it is subtle and adds another dimension.

Finish: The overall flavor doesn't linger long, but there is a hint of bitterness beckoning another sip. Only a tiny amount of numbing can be felt. Another category that just barely made it to a 4.

Overall: I enjoy drinking this absinthe and I find the flavor very pleasing. If this flavor profile has similarities with some other absentas, my curiosity has been piqued!

-Color-
Before Water: A pretty shade of lime yellow-green. I also think of it as “lime peridot”. A little more towards the straw/amber range than the photos I’ve seen online though.

After Water: Good glowy light lime peridot.

-Louche-
Good trails, but a little quick to form a cloud up to the clear top layer (more stratification and showy roiling would have been nice). The line does have good staying power and puts on a little show before it goes away.

-Aroma-
Before Water: Grape and mint with earthy, herby undertones.

After Water: The grape and mint overtones stay at the forefront, then lead right into sweet herbal pontica and a subdued earthiness. Not totally room filling, but does have some range, and I find it quite pleasant.

-Flavor-
A very tasty- if pronounced- grape in front, leading right into strong mint, with anise, vanilla, lemon citrus, pontica, and slight grassy notes developing mid palate. At one point when these meet, the product website’s description of “candied plum” notes is quite accurate. Though flavorful, this is definitely a lighter absinthe than most vertes, and I find myself downing a glass a bit quicker than I usually do.

-Finish-
The mouthfeel is on the thinner side of creamy, but it’s a nice, smooth satin. Brisk mint and wormwood in the finish move things along and keep the sweet flavors from the grape and anise away from cloying territory.

-Overall-
This absinthe definitely has its own personality. It took several days after opening for the mint and dry grassiness to stop dominating and let other flavors to come forth and find a balance (sugar helped a bit during this phase). I’m a sucker for a nice grape base, and I think they did very well there. I agree with folks that refer to this as a light desert or summer absinthe. Some may never like the idiosyncrasies even after breathing, but I’m quite fond of this Spanish treat.

Notes: Louched 3:1, fountain drip. Sugar was used in the first week after opening, afterwards I went with no sugar as usual.

This first tasting of Obsello was prepared with no sugar and ice cold water at a slow drip.

Aroma pre-louche: Uncorking the bottle--after fighting with devil wax for about ten minutes--offers a soft, pleasant aroma that does not scream of one particular ingredient over another. It is rather well balanced, sweet, and at the risk of jumping headlong into a cliche, very much a delicate licorice.

Color: The color on pouring is unremarkable. a faded green, not very pretty. Almost hard to say if green, or yellow is the dominant hue. While there is no sediment, it does appear a bit dull. Not cloudy, but there is no sparkle.

Louche/aroma: There are no oily trails--50% ABV--and the louche develops very quickly. One second its not there, the next second it is. It stays separated for a while, and then seems to collapse on itself. Unspectacular. The aroma is strong, but not not powerful--if that makes sense. It smells wonderful, and is so far the best part of the experience. Very subtle and inviting. I'm afraid it could be easy to over water this absinthe and stopped it at just barely 3-1. It finishes a pale jade.

Flavor: Subtly sweet, with a forward wormwood character. There is an unusual flavor that, while I cannot place, is very tasty. The mouth feel is thin, but the flavor holds up well. Very little anise or fennel, but there is something pairing with the wormwood that provides a distinct flavor. AS un-useful as it might be to compare one absinthe to another in a review, this is not dissimilar to Lucid; only more sophisticated and pleasant. The sweetness is definitely there so sugar might not be necessary.

*EDIT* With sugar, the flavor profile changes towards anise. The wormwood subsides, and fennel is still almost nonexistent. Good, but perhaps better without sugar; too sweet.

Finish: Clean, fresh, sweet. It lingers on the tongue and coats the inside of the mouth with an almost grassy memory. The finish is hardly different than while it sits in the mouth; a very nice characteristic. You never loose sight of the flavor.

Overall: This one seems strange to me. Above all else the taste reins supreme here, as the color both before and after louche are insignificant. A delicate, sweet aroma suggests at a delicate, sweet taste. This is a very good absinthe--worth more than the price. It is the perfect substitution for Lucid as they are not dissimilar. But Obsello is a much more refined product. Perhaps a perfect starter absinthe, and at its insanely low price, worth buying two bottles at once. The wax is a monster and I was terrified I'd get some in the bottle or my glass, but it can be dealt with using a pocket knife. Think sweet grass laced with wormwood!

Color: A cross between olive and yellow, and far too much on the yellow side. Not what I would call an attractive verte color.

Louche: The louche is decent enough. It doesn't build particularly well and starts quickly, but that's pretty standard. It gets thick enough.

Aroma: One person's peculiar can be another's "interesting". I don't like what's going on in there personally. It's spicy and minty with underlying vanilla. The anise plays second fiddle. I find it to be thin and flat in some areas.

Flavor: That vanilla that is underlying in the nose is far more prominent in the palate. I find it overbearing and distracting. There's also a distinct nuttiness that reminds me of almond that I don't care for. The mint is still there and the anise comes forward. The wormwood is easily detectable.

Finish: Since I don't care for the taste I naturally won't be a fan of the finish either, but regardless it is lacking in the duration department and wouldn't score high in this facet even if I did care for it.

Overall: This is a quality offering, just not one I'm a fan of.

This is based on a bottle from DrinkUpNY. The color is not as green as I would typically expect from a verte, especially given the description on their web site. Unlike many of the others, my first experience with the louche was rather disappointing. I did use tap-temperature water, which might account for very few oil trails and none of the cloud forming I am accustomed to. The aroma was good, but it doesn't fill the room the way some other brands do (I may have to update this later, as I have a cold right now). The taste was very pleasant. There is a certain amount of complexity that is intriguing but not distracting. I would say that if you were new to Absinthe, this might be one of the better ones to start with, as it is simpler, but still a little mysterious. The finish leaves a bit of alcohol on the tongue, but not any more than you'd get from vodka or gin. Overall, I like this absinthe and will keep it stocked.

This was my first time trying a Spanish absinthe, and I went into it a bit concerned about the purported "mint" flavor of this drink. In that regard, however, my concerns were misplaced.

The color before water was a nice but unremarkable green, somewhere between peridot and olive. After water, the drink louches to an equally unremarkable yellow jade. The louche itself forms very rapidly, without the thick, rope-like oil trails of other brands, and my sense was the louche developed somewhat too quickly to be entirely proper.

The aroma, flavor, and finish are all good. I found this absinthe heavier on wormwood and with less emphasis on anise than other varieties I've tried. In that regard, it is like Lucid, though overall it's better and does not have Lucid's peppery notes. The finish is also good: a nice, lingering bitterness.

Overall, a good offering and one I'll continue to enjoy.
