Faux Absinthe
Really? No.

The colour is very profound, green and what not. Taking into account a big stalk of hyssop in the bottle, it is no wonder the colouration is an on-going process....

Once a great maker, now a failure

One of the most undercoloured absinthes I have ever seen. A total letdown. On the other hand, the louche is spectacular and pleasant to look at. Because...

well, libertarian maybe?

Absinthe is terribly undercoloured with just a small point of green tinge. The louche is too rapid and one-dimensional, badiane presence is evident. ...

younger sister of Angelique

Being an ardent Angelique fan, I haven't been convinced by the appearance of Opaline. It is a solid, more feminine absinthe, created maybe as the more angelic...

Finally Mysterysinthe is back!

Absinthe pours a velvety light golden cognac with very tiny greenish reflections. The closest would be Clandestine verte Suisse. Perfect. Swirling, subtle louche. At 1:1, there is...

Mediterranean breeze with a kick

Colour is Light golden. Could be darker. The tinge is in the vein of L'italienne but not spoiling the coeur of distillation. Louche is translucent, almost to...

Edward is not Edouard

Absinthe is clear and presents a nice turbulent louche with oil trails and more, what is pleasant to observe. Once louched it shows a gentle opacity with little blueish notes...

my favourite verte from Switzerland

I have reviewed two versions of veuve verte, the one that was 69%-1 and the other that was 68%-2. There was a premiere version, 54% which I have not had...

She has sapphire eyes, that fairy I mean

Colour, louche and general characteristics are typical of la bleue style and there is nothing in these departments that would make Sapphire be an odd man out. ...

It is cheap but tasty

It looks like a blanche, but is not that clear. That batch is quite good, the previous batches were yellow-tinged AFAIK. Louche is turbulent and ends opaque....

The almost legendary verte de Fou

Ideally green feuille morte on the rise. The louche is too quick, at 1:2 is totally opaque. The finished colour is green and creamy. ...

French style blanche

The review was conducted 2/9/2010 from a well-stored bottle. The results of that tasting are really impressive since when fresh from the bottle without aeration the blanche...

Oliva, not a good name for a product, either

Too pale slight yellow tinge is the colour of that product. Louche is what makes us hope for some improvement, it is nice, thick and turbulent. ...

Colour is proper, could be darker, but as long as the New Master Distiller takes over the production, we cannot expect much. Louche is gradual and slow...
