Review Detail

 
Mythe
Traditional Absinthe
Wow this stuff sucks big time. I got suckered into buying Mythe from the guy at Sam's Wine & Spirits. He owes me about $100. $30 for the small bottle and the other $70 for pain and suffering. Seriously- I was second-guessing every drink of absinthe I had for a few weeks because of this poo.

Color- Not too bad actually- some sediment, however it is natural looking. It's not a very deep & inviting olive color either.

Louche- Very slow and translucent like the other reviewer states. No trails whatsoever.

Aroma- Very off-putting chemical/vinegar smell. The smell starts off interesting but ends with a funky incense that is really weird and reminds me of the smell of spit. Disgusting

Flavor- Just like the aroma. Need I say more?

Finish- Ok right off the bat, but continues to be extremely peppery and bitter- really bad and rancid bitter that is just annoying and continues... and continues........

Overall, this is the first absinthe that I have had to dump- I should have heeded the advice of fellow Wormwood Society members.... sorry....
