Review Detail

 
La Veuve Verte
Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: A good peridot, leaning a bit more towards yellow, with a hint of gold. No sediment or haze.

Louche: It has a mildly green (maybe a bit more yellow), impenetrable louche. It's not what I would call very "glowy", either.

Aroma: Wormwood, sweetness, and something that makes my nose tingle. The scent is not particularly big and it takes a good deal of sniffing to figure out what's going on.

Flavor/Mouthfeel: Tasting this one's a bit peculiar, the flavor doesn't happen where I expect it to, instead the liquid glides through the mouth and then near the end of the sip, the flavor hits all at once: fennel, anise, and wormwood, all very pronounced.

Finish: Cold and very much like the feeling after brushing my teeth, the wormwood seems to last the longest with a bit of the anise.

Overall: I wish it were a bit rounder in flavor and aroma, and much less crisp and cooling.
