Preparing Absinthe In Society

Properly preparing a glass of absinthe isn't as complicated as you may think.

Editor reviews

Appearance: An attractive light peridot. No sediment.

Louche: Some people have complained about a lack of louche. I did not have any problems coaxing an opalescent louche with a simple drip from my fountain. It's certainly thinner than some, but not to the point of being an outlier.

Aroma: Sweet and inviting with top notch Spanish anise and prominent fennel that gives it a touch of a vegetal note. Very enticing.

Flavor/Mouthfeel: At 3:1, which is my typical preparation, the mouthfeel is pleasant. Not thick or tongue-coating, but present enough to know you're drinking some quality herbs. Lots of wonderful anise and, as with the aroma, fennel. Wormwood adds a crisp break from all the sweetness.

Finish: A touch hot, but nothing offputting. The flavors linger on the tongue without being obtrusive. No real numbing effect, which is a nice departure from some other brands that kill your tastebuds after a while.

Overall: There is nothing here to complain about. This is a very nice absinthe. An easy drinker that will please any absintheur.

Quite a nice absinthe in a unique bottle. Dark brown glass gives the appearance of something medicinal. The contents are a rather traditional absinthe - well crafted and fairly balanced. The most negative aspect is the louche though... you must be gentle with it else it will not become as thick as its potential. It seems to take a bit less water than most as well... so be careful with this one all around. If you are careful... you will be rewarded :)
