Review Detail

 
Libertine Verte 72
Traditional Absinthe
Absinthe is terribly undercoloured with just a small point of green tinge.

The louche is too rapid and one-dimensional, badiane presence is evident.

Scent is relatively pleasant, if not exceptional, a good measure of coriander, followed by fennel and helluva of badiane.

Upon tasting, pontica note comes over and saves the disaster started by colour and aroma. As a result the taste is spicy and bitter, giving more body to overanetholated texture.

Compared to Libertine Amer, it is much, much better, but still not anything one would be grabbing all the time.
