Review Detail

 
Reverie
Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: A verdant green. Inviting peridot. No visible sediment.

Louche: Fully louched about 1.5:1. A cloudy green. Very nice, but not quite opalescent.

Aroma: An herbal punch! Wormwood up front with just a touch of anise. It's intriguing, but a bit unbalanced.

Flavor/Mouthfeel: A bit thin on the tongue, but still enjoyable. Minty and powerful with lots of wormwood. Astringency level is a bit higher than most, but not in a bad way. I'd like to see a bit more balance between the main herbs, but still quite nice.

Finish: Spicy! Lingers for several minutes. Warming down the throat, even at 3:1.

Overall: A great effort. Like all things Aussie, it's got a kick! But in a good way. A tad bit unbalanced, but I enjoy a wormwood forward absinthe. Glad to have a bottle!
