Verte de Fougerolles 72

Overall rating
Before water, the Verte de Fougerolles looks like an unusually clear olive oil, and it is perhaps not the most attractive absinthe on the market (especially if one is expecting a bright, peridot green). However, it louches to a pleasing, yellowish jade and when tasted proves a fragrant and flavorful drink. I would describe it as "herbal" and "leafy" and even a little wild. It is far from the most subtle absinthe I've tried, and it's one of the few I prefer with sugar. But if one is in the mood for a bold and arresting absinthe, I think this is a very good choice.
