Review Detail

 
Traditional Absinthe
NOTE: Verte Batch One with Louisiana grown Wormwood, purchased 6/30/13 at the Atelier Vie Bottle Sale.

Appearance Pre Louche: Beautiful natural light green color with sediment at the bottom of the bottle. After Louche: Ivory colored with white milky accents.

Louche: Lovely oil trails, beautiful swirling and thick. It is on the fast side.
Aroma: anise and threshold alcohol.

Flavor/Mouthfeel: Creamy and a perfectly balanced trinity followed by a mild alcohol base warmth, followed by a savory tingling bitterness.

Finish: savory tingling and a silkiness.

Overall: While not the most complex, it is a pretty good example of an everyday absinthe. Something I can keep around for sure.

Final Notes: I'm happy to see a Verte being made in New Orleans that embraces the history of absinthe within the city and follows a traditional format. I also like the use of the Cane base, Sugarcane is close to my heart and the use of it as a base is a bold move and I applaud Atelier Vie for it. I'd love to see a deluxe version of the Verte and can't wait for the Blanche.
