Review Detail

 
Marteau Master's Reserve
Traditional Absinthe
I've gone through a couple bottles of this latest offering from Gnostalgic, and while I do like it, I do not like it as well as previous versions of Marteaux. I'm not sure whether the recipe has changed, or just my taste, but the bottom line is, this is a beautiful absinthe that has just a bit too much of one particular note in the flavor. In some ways, it reminds of of the Leopold, though the intrusive herb is not as prominent as in L14. For those who like a very delicate, floral absinthe, MMR is probably your ticket. I think my preference is for something a little more bold.
