Review Detail

 
Mythe
Traditional Absinthe
Color: A pale greenish yellow.

Louche: Unlike other reviews, I got a pretty decent louche with lots of greens, blues and whites.

Aroma: Very herbal. I pick up cinnamon and flowers, but with a tinge of something like vinegar. No real wormwood or anise.

Flavor: Biting acridity and bitterness. There are hints of sweetness at the forefront, but followed by highly astringent and bitter flavors. It's tough to even finish the sample size I poured.

Finish: Same acrid flavors are present in the finish. Luckily it doesn't last that long.

Overall: If you're stuck with a bottle, you might want to try it with a lot of sugar. It might help. I'd never buy it though.
