Refreshingly Delicious

Overall, this absinthe is delicious. My favorite things about it are its complex aroma and great flavor. The only bad things in my very humble opinion are that the louche is slightly too thin and subsequently the mouth feel is not quite there. The only reason I can see for the mouth feel not being there is because of its stout herb aroma/taste. The finish is not quite what I would like it to be because of its thin louche. Is it one of the best COs right now? Potentially. Would I hesitate to drink it or buy it again? Absolutely not. There is still some room for work, but this is definitely a great absinthe.



Color: Amber green, very attractive.

Louche: Retains some of its original color, good until around 4:1. I drank my second glass at 3:1 and liked that the best. Slightly thin.

Aroma: Strong smell of wormwood, very herbal, appealing.

Flavor: Strongest point of this absinthe IMO. Good till the last drop (as long as it isn't over watered).

Finish: Does not quite stick as long as I would like, yet still substantial. Maybe this will improve over time?
