Decent mid-priced absinthe

Very pale yellow green, louches to almost pure white. Before water, aroma has burning alcohol(strange for 45%) after is strong on Anis and minty Wormwood. Fairly M.O.R flavour profile, but tasty.

it would have been better a couple years ago

If i had tried this before many of the wonderful new absinthes of the last couple years i certainly would have been more impressed. Minimal color, very pale yellow/green.Very weak & unimpressive louche. The aroma was plesant, but just not quite "there". The flavor start to finish was very umballanged and at times unpleasant. Compared to many other COs this one is lacking the touch.

Wonderful

Beautiful amber/olive green goes pale green. The first taste was extremely mouthfilling. Seems to get better by the week.

Well it was free...

I DJed an "absinthe" night at a local bar here in NC for a year or so. Absente was/is the only thing close to absinthe available through the NC ABC (and it too is a special order that needed special approval. So in addition to pay I did receive a couple of these each night i spun. Works OK in a Sazerac, not quite sinkable, but it is not absinthe.

A great start

The color is very light green with a touch of blue, the were a few particles floating around. The louche was very fast(star anise)and ends just off pure white. The aroma is very fruity(is this made with their eau di vie?)Flavor is very minty/spicy but really bounces around instead of everything working together. Finish is very dry, but with a pleasant wormwood bitterness that sticks around for a while. Overall I did really like this absinthe and hope that they continue to work on its balance.
