The Kurt Russell of absinthes
Overall rating
Beautiful peridot color pre-louche. It turns a thick olive color when water is added -- each drop of water sends white-ish plumes down into the absinthe, like the fog on an old horror movie set. It's beautiful to watch.

A fragrance of black pepper, wormwood, and herbs.
The taste is heavy on the wormwood, but in a good way. This is a serious absinthe -- Kurt Russell or Lee Van Cleef. It doesn't pull any punches. There's enough natural sweetness to balance that out though and, despite the instructions on the back of the bottle, I found that I preferred it without sugar (which seemed to clash with some flavor in the absinthe).
Overall, a very good absinthe.
