Review Detail

 
Eichelberger Verte 68 Limitee
Retired Brands
Although this absinthe is listed under "retired brands," I purchased mine in November 2016 -- it's being sold in the tall, slim bottles.

The color pre-louche is light green with yellow.
I don't get the standard "black licorice" on the nose -- it's all dried licorice root tea, herbs, and grasses, like an herbalist's shop (but especially the licorice root). These components are present on the taste as well. There's a natural sweetness to the herbs though, so I'd highly recommend trying this absinthe without sugar first. It's both extremely fragrant and full-flavored. The most purely "herbal" absinthe I've ever tasted. Top-notch quality.
