Review Detail

 
La Grenouille
Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: A very light yellowish green, clear.

Louche: Beautiful. Initially is orange and purple at the bottom with a clear green layer on top. At the a medium thick louche, greenish white with some bluish tracts.

Aroma: Drier than usual, flowery and spicy. Freshly-cut grass. Less anise than usual.

Flavor/Mouthfeel: Complex and spicy. Difficult to describe, but with a very specific personality. Less sweet, less anise, more spicy than usual. Nothing is too flowery or candy-like. The result is more than the sum of the parts here.

Finish: All the complex tastes and aromas linger amazingly long.

Overall: This is by far one of my favorite absinthes, the one I currently drink most often, a permanent resident in my bar. Its personality is rather unique, it may not be everyone's darling. No other absinthe lingers this long in my mouth and nose.
