Review Detail

 
Adnams Copper House Absinthe Rouge
Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: beautiful red color with no sediment.

Louche: average thick, pink, getting white as more water is added. No complexity of color as in the best vertes.

Aroma: think of a good white absinthe, very well balanced, with the flowery note of hibiscus. Anise is well restrained.

Flavor: I would describe it as that of a white absinthe with an extra touch of hibiscus, which is in no way overwhelming or obtrusive. Nothing soapy, nothing bitter, nothing tasting artificial.

Finish: some delicate wormwood and hibiscus.

Overall: I think it's a different batch than that of previous reviews. It looks like a well balanced, round, mild absinthe, with no rough edges. I tried it both with and witgout sugar, but I think a little sugar helps (I seldom add sugar). This is the third red absinthe I try, it looks like the one I like most so far: Awen Nature seemed too mild, Neuzeller Malvales seemed too poignant.
