Review Detail

 
Duplais Blanche
Traditional Absinthe
Being a blanche, it's perfectly clear. No errors, particles, or colours. The louche is very attractive. Slow to startm pretty contrails swirl with increasing speed. Separate tiers remain distinct for a long time and then quickly blend together. The louched drink is thick, perhaps a bit too much so. It's a nice enough white with some grey shades but nothing special. The aroma has a lot of wormwood. Anise is also quite present and tastes somewhat like star anise. Fennel and hyssop round it out. Wormwood asserts itself in the flavour from the beginning, followed by tangy anise and then fennel. Slightly minty and medicinal with a medium, wormwood-dominated finish. The mouth-feel is kinda of creamy but leaves something to be desired. It's a solid blanche with a unique character that is difficult to pinpoint, but I find it enjoyable.
