Review Detail

 
Duplais Blanche
Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: Crystal clear except for the slightest hint of yellow.

Louche: Slightly on the thick side and definitely monotone. Not much to say about the louche really.

Aroma: Butter? Anise and fennel dominate with a citrusy edge. A floral wormwood seems shy and not much else seems to be going on here.

Flavor: Oily texture and star anise are the first impressions. There's a flavor that reminds me of tea as well. The characteristic chalky texture of Matter absinthes is noted as well.

Finish: Wormwood and warm but rough spice tones appear quick but recede to a mirror of the flavor. The finish is average in length.

Overall: A drinkable blanche but nothing I would go out of my way for.
