Like others, I struggled with how to rate the color of a blanche. Before water, it's perfectly clear, but I felt that awarding it a "5" would skew the rest of the review, so I settled on a "4." As water is added, the Kubler 53 gradually becomes a translucent, milky white, and the aroma is fresh and crisp and quite pleasing. However, I found the flavor to be a little one-dimensional, although it is nevertheless good and very acceptable. The finish is interestingly bitter but not overly so, and is pleasant enough even if not as complex as other absinthes. If Kubler's flavor matched its aroma and finish, I believe this absinthe would border on the excellent. Overall, I found the Kubler enjoyable, but I think there is room for improvement.

Color: Clear, as a blanche should be.



Louche: As a good Absinthe should be, however, comes on fast due to being 53% abv. Nothing grand.



Aroma: Minty, spicy, and some sweetness.



Flavor: Starts out minty / spicy. Alcohol heat there, and numbs tongue. Above average, but not the best I've had.



Finish: Very good. Drawn out, and it goes from minty / spicy to sweetness at the end.



Overall: Fine Absinthe for the price. Very comparable to La Bleue Clandestine, but just below it. In terms of the currently two "legal" available in the US, it is just above Lucid. Head and shoulders above Blanch de Fougerolles.
