Review Detail

 
Eichelberger Verte 68 Limitee
Retired Brands
Appearance: very clear yellow green, with no sediment.

Louche: lovely oily trails during formation, with some orange. At 1:3 the louche is already so thin to stop from adding water.

Aroma: mostly wormwood and fennel, some alcohol, very little anise, rather dry, some liquorice.

Taste: consistent with the aroma, a lovely bitterness from wormwood. Rather creamy in the mouth. Complex. Somehow dry.

Finish: a long persistence of bitter wormwood and spicy fennel. Very fresh.

Overall: an interesting absinthe, with less anise than usual and with a lovely bitterness lingering for long in the mouth. Having read other reviews, I was surprised but the very thin louche. My bottle was purchased in early 2016. To preserve some louche, little water must be added, but the result is the rather high in alcohol.
