Review Detail

Color: The bottle I have is a much darker - more yellow/brown color than the greener colors I've seen in photos of this particular brand. It's very pleasant to look at and lends a more unique character to the absinthe.

Louche: Nice and thick. Good separation of the unlouched portion and the louched content during the process. It's a good, steady climb.

Aroma: Very pleasant. I can't help but compare it a bit to Leopolds Verte. Quite enjoyable and very present during the louche.

Flavor: Balanced and traditional. Really everything a proper absinthe should be. A delicious undertaking.

Mouthfeel: Substantial and creamy. Nothing wimpy about this absinthe whatsoever.

Finish: Nice numbing... lingering flavors which shift a bit as time passes. Entirely lovely.

Overall: Absolutely one of my favorite absinthes. This is one of the rare absinthes I plan to try and keep on hand at all times!
