Review Detail

 
St. Antoine Absinthe v. 1 and 2
Traditional Absinthe
I like the dark color in the glass. It's different but appealing to me.

When the cold ice water started falling into the absinthe, I thought I would see a lovely feuille morte but sadly, the louche did not develop.

The aroma was not unpleasant but missing anise and wormwood.

Likewise, the flavor is also weak in anise and wormwood. Otherwise, it not unpleasant.

The wormwood falls away too quickly. There is a lingering bitterness but the wormwood flavor does not.

Overall, it is a pretty good beverage and not a terrible non-traditional absinthe.



More anise and more (better) wormwood and I think this would be a very good absinthe. There are some interesting herbs working but missing the key pieces.
