Review Detail

 
Sevil
Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: Clear, clean and glass-like. No sediment nor haze.

Louche: Just a tiny bit thick but otherwise spot-on translucency. There is a small mixture of hues in an otherwise straight-forward and cloudy white.

Aroma: Very wormwood forward. Fennel before anise and a nice floral-malic acid scent as well. The aroma is light but not overly so.

Flavor: Wormwood, chamomile, fennel, anise and a smooth texture show up on stage to open the show together. There's a slight floral and pepper background as well as a textural hint of star anise. Very good use of star anise as a background note and balance to the drink. It's not simple nor is it complex, but it is wonderful.

Finish: Small citrus and pepper notes come up in volume a little but otherwise the finish is an exact continuation of the flavor. It is mouth numbing as well as astringent towards the end.

Overall: A very good blanche that is floral and unique without sacrificing much of anything in the way of traditional flavor.
