Review Detail

 
Montmartre 65°
Traditional Absinthe
Every time I try a glass of Montmartre, I pledge to myself to keep an open mind. So many people I respect are singing Montmartre's praises, I must be missing something. The color is fine although not spectacular. The louche is alright but a bit thin for my taste. The aroma! There is something there I do not like and it only becomes more pronounced in the sipping. Perhaps, it is the cinnamon mingling with the other herbs that throws me off. Whatever it is hangs on through out the finish, tinging the delicious wormwood. I keep trying to like it but Montmartre is one absinthe I just can't get excited about.
