Review Detail

 
Faux Absinthe
The color as poured is a pale greenish blue, very thin. The louche takes a while to erupt and when it does is terribly thin and translucent. The aroma before louche is anise anise anise, after, cat urine and anise. The taste is cloyingly sweet and anisey, like sambuca or an anisette. There is a bit of tongue numbing that subsides quickly. Overall, get arak or ouzo or a pastis or anything. I would rather drink louched sambuca than this.
