Review Detail

 
Promethee
Traditional Absinthe
Color: An inviting emerald green. Not as 'green' as most other Matter products.

Louche: wonderful layering produced by the fountain. Well formed, deep and opalescent.

Aroma: clean and fresh with lots of anise sweetness

Flavor: An interesting profile with an upfront sweetness that borders on cloying for me. I much more prefer a drier flavor. the taste evolves into a minty pepperiness that is enjoyable.

Finish: Extremely sweet, but enjoyable.

Overall: Not bad at all. A great insight into an absinthe made with non-traditional ingredients. I think most people could get away with not sugaring this one at all.
