Review Detail

 
Retired Brands
Color: Waaay too light. Almost a straw color.



Louche: I was happy with the louche. The layering is very pronounced. I think, due to the lightness of this absinthe, there may have been some tweaking to add this amount of louching.



Aroma: Not much there. Just a little anise, but it's so light.



Flavor: Unremarkable is the best I can say. It's so light, that after the tongue is numbed, it's almost like you're drinking flavored water.



Finish: The bitterness in the finish isn't as enjoyable as a well made absinthe should be. It's more astringent and acrid.



Overall: They really need to do some overhauling of the recipe if they want to make this competitive in the absinthe community. I hope they do, because the presentation creates a high expectation that isn't delivered upon.
