Editor reviews

Appearance
Neat, the telltale dark brownish yellow of macerated grand wormwood with slight glints of green. Clear and free of haze or sediment. Louched, that oddball "Dijon" yellow "Gatorade" color. Looks like a colonoscopy prep to me.

Louche
Very thin and see-through. No gradients to the color. I can read the forum subject headlines on my computer screen through the upper part of a Pontarlier glass of this.

Aroma
Low quality wormwood and not much else. Acrid, waxy, unbalanced. No sense of anise or fennel to speak of.

Flavor
Bitter and astringent. No balancing anethole. No herbs of interest. The wormwood tastes like it died of old age.

Finish
Bitter, drying, astringent, and harsh.

Overall
Well, for those familiar with my usual 475-500 word style, this must be refreshing. It took this to take the wind out of my... wind! Let's face it, if there isn't much to say, there isn't much to say. I'm glad someone gave me this bottle. I feel sorry for those who actually paid money for it. Tasted twice today, I pretty much spit out every mouthful since I was really afraid to swallow it. The best advice I can offer is that, even price unconsidered, this is a very low grade absinthe experience. Price considered, it becomes truly appalling, since there are fine, fine offerings available at this price and less... many far less.

LF literally takes the words right out of my mouth. And the next time I consider tasting something like this I think I'll just keep my mouth shut.

Done with a 1 ounce dose, diluted 4.5:1, 5:1 and no sugar.

Logan Fils Extrait D'Absinthe 10/22/11.
At this score level will not do multiple evaluations.
