Review Detail

 
Awen Nature Safran
Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: attractive yellow. No visible sediment.

Louche: Nice, light louche. Not overly thick, and not quite opalescent, but still attractive.

Aroma: oddly fruity and savory, mainly due to the saffron.

Flavor: more balanced than the aroma, but still a bit idiosyncratic. Tasty, but not quite traditional.

Finish: light anise flavors, but with a saffron punch. I can see this being a good absinthe to drink while eating. Paella, risotto, pizza, etc. I can see it being very good to cook with as well, since it isn't as sweet as a traditional brand.

Overall: Not traditional, but still tasty. An interesting twist!
