Nice Absinthe.

Took a gamble on this one since there were no reviews on it and very little info online. At first it seemed plain (flavor), average, or even mediocre, but after...

a bit spicy

Appearance is crystal clear. I see no sediment or discoloration up close. Louche- takes a while to start up but then it quickly becomes louched, without much of a show....

Freshhhhhh

Color- Somewhere between an olive green and a golden brown. It can look just kind of brownish in the bottle, from across the room, but when you actually pour it...

Sorceled

I don't really like having to rate the appearance of absinthe in general but especially blanche. It's clear. What more is there to say? The louche is pretty bad. There...

Something a little different

Clear but vivid light green appearance, looks great in my glass. The louche happens fast unless you pour/drip very slow. Thick louche. The aroma is probably the stand-out characteristic of...

Batch 16-5 (but I've had a few bottles in the past 10yrs, and this one seems just like I remember) Appearance- Very deep green. I have had bottles for a...

good value

Leans more towards a pale olive-yellowish-brown kind of color rather than a deep green of any kind. Reminds me of a bottle of Meadow of Love I had for over...

it has bite

Deep, almost murky peridot appearance. The louche is spectacular, with lots going on during a slow drip. Swirling clouds and different layers that eventually merge into one translucent, milky haze....

took a while to grow on me

appearance- vibrant yellow-green. really nice. after louche, like a pale, foggy pastel green (maybe with very subtle blue tones). the louche itself isn't very impressive, and a few times...

Bare essence

Appearance- Well, it's clear. Louche- Pretty good louche. Not *too* opaque and definitely not thin. Nice and cloudy. Aroma- Pretty strong anise. The anise is the main thing I notice...

Basic gin + Basic Blanche

Appearance- Very clear, so for a blanche it seems exactly as it's supposed to. Louche- Really nice. Maybe a bit on the thin side but also a little more complex...

Probably my measuring stick absinthe

Appearance- A nice, light, slightly yellowish green. Louche- Thick louche, can't see through the glass. As it louches it's a good display. Aroma- Very much what I expect...
