Review Detail

 
Montmartre 65°
Traditional Absinthe
Colour is green with a yellowish tinge. It's natural but hazy. The louche action is fast. It's thickest at the bottom but it builds everywhere at once. The result is an attractive, sea-green drink with lots of nuance. Not too thick, not too thin. Aroma is strongly cinnamon with some heat. A little bit of wormwood, with some orangey citrus, fruitiness, and minty wormwood. Cinnamon is the most upfront flavour, followed by wormwood. Dry and not overly anisey. Thick mouth-feel with a spicy bite. Moderate, dry, wormwoody finish with pine notes. To me this absinthe just screams "Yule."
