I received a bottle from France and eminently enjoyed it: it is certainly the best Absinthe I have had the pleasure to try.



The colour is delicately and subtle. The aroma is robust and the flavor and finish are distinctively brilliant. Outstanding in all respects.



Unlike most, I have not penalized Roquette for its subtle louche. Having grown in a country where the staple drink is Ouzo, i.e. a louche a merry-go-round, it is not clear to me why a blatant louche is desirable over a gloriously understated one!
