Editor reviews

Appearance: Clear, clean and bright. A nice peridot.

Louche: The addition of ice cold water via fountain produced a nicely built louche. quite attractive.

Aroma: Herbal and enticing with hints of mint, wormwood, and confectioner's sugar.

Flavor: spicy and peppery with only a touch of anise sweetness. Pretty tasty, yet rudimentary.

Finish: Decent herbal follow through, but it recedes too quickly.

Overall: A decent offering from the Frenchman, but not much to write home about. It would be difficult to rationalize buying it when there are so many more complex absinthes available. I could see this working well as a starter brand though.
