Maybe Useful as a Premium-Priced Cough Suppressant
Also called "Absinthe X," Zele Premium Absinthe is simply a high-priced bad experience.
My first impression upon opening the bottle was of a strong night-time cough remedy. There was absolutely no louching at all upon the introduction of ice-water and sugar -- this merely thinned its almost fluorescent blue-green color. Water also did not improve its very unsubtle fragrance, or its overpoweringly foul taste, which lingered unpleasantly on the tongue.
I only slightly exaggerate when I say that a cheaper, similar experience could probably be had by fortifying a bottle of NyQuil with Everclear, and then cutting that with sugar and water. I recommend that you run away from this product -- run quickly! The only thing premium in Zele Premium Absinthe is the price one pays for a poor-quality product.
