This is a very respectable absinthe. The initial impression is very nice: it pours an attractive peridot with olive tones, and the louche is just as one would expect. The aroma is also very nice. It is bracingly herbal and fresh, though also restrained. In the area of flavor, I would say Redux is above average but not quite my favorite. It makes for a good summer absinthe, though, as it is light on the tongue and very fresh, with minty overtones. I would like a more robust flavor and finish, however. I would say that this absinthe does best with a lower water-to-dose ratio.

Overall, I like this offering well, and will buy it again.
