Review Detail

 
La Fée Absinthe Parisienne (US)
Traditional Absinthe
Color: Obvious artificial coloration. Bright green. Kind of scary.

Louche: As with many anise heavy absinthes, the louche develops well. Maybe a bit too fast.

Aroma: Lots of heat and base alcohol. Quite a bit of cloying anise.

Flavor: Overpowering anise numbs the tongue thoroughly. I really can't make out much wormwood or anything else for that matter.

Finish: Very oily and unpleasant.

Overall: Yet another offering from La Fee that seems to try to cut corners and cheapen the category. There's no reason to spend such money for a cheaply made product like this when you can buy a naturally colored, authentic absinthe. Sorry La Fee, this isn't one I'd buy again.
