Review Detail

 
Butterfly
Traditional Absinthe
Initial color is a pretty green. Great, big aromas! Smells a bit fruity but still traditional - strikingly similar to Leopold's Verte. Really nice! Louche is milky-green. Taste is delicate but quite balanced... again, something fruity to this. Really quite delicious though. No alcohol heat at all. Maybe use a lower ratio than 5:1 on this. Full, creamy mouthfeel - especially at 3:1/4:1.

A bit delicate but solid... reminds me so much of Leopold's - not a bad thing at all.

Be sure to read up on the story of how an absinthe from Boston ends up being distilled in Switzerland. Very cool!
