Review Detail

 
Faux Absinthe
This was the first "absinth" I ever had. Incredibly expensive and turned out to be artificially colored, non-louching, and simply unappealing in all regards. Stay away from Maktub!

They claim less anise and super-high thujone levels. Terrible.

Appearance: Neon green. Incredibly artificial.

Louche: What louche?

Aroma: Searing alcohol. No botanicals whatsoever.

Flavor: Straight alcohol. Nothing appealing here.

Mouthfeel: None. The watered-down alcohol post-louche is really not appealing.

Finish: Like drinking base alcohol. There is nothing to this.

Overall: Please do not even consider purchasing this. It was gifted to me... so not entirely my fault.
