Review Detail

 
Faux Absinthe
I was gifted a bottle of this for review from the owner of Alandia. He knew the review wouldn't be pretty, but wanted an opinion nonetheless. I appreciate his ability to 'take a punch'.

Appearance: Almost a neon green with a blueish haze. Very similar to many Eastern European faux absinthes.

Louche: Hardly anything to speak of. Very light and still see-through.

Aroma: Medicinal and minty with some anise. Not appealing at all. Lots of harsh alcohol.

Flavor: Same medicinal quality. Mouthwashy and quite bitter at the tail end.

Finish: Acrid. And it lingers. It makes you want to scrape your tongue.

Overall: No. No no no no. NO.
