Review Detail

 
Awen Nature Safran
Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: an unusual, intriguing, clean yellow.

Louche: not too thick, but lovely.

Aroma: interesting and complex but very light. Some alcohol notes, some wormwood, little anise. And saffron, as expected.

Flavor: think of a standard green absinthe, but very light. Saffron is the evident note.

Finish: pretty balanced, it does not linger long in the mouth.

Overall: It's an interesting absinthe with a unique personality, but it's very, very, very light. So light I suspect it could be a problem of the 5cl bottle. I tried it without sugar and in 1:4 dilution, while the Awen Nature website suggests 1:1 or 1:2 and sugar.
