Review Detail

 
Butterfly
Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: A very light yellowish green, slightly foggy.

Louche: Oily trails in the beginning, with some yellow and orange. Then a thick, milky, green white louche, with some orange and blue reflex.

Aroma: A lovely aroma, intense but not invasive. Holy trinity without any rough edge, some spicy notes (cinnamon, pepper). Sweet and balanced.

Flavor/Mouthfeel: Mildly sweet, with wormwood, anise is restrained. Creamy and round, intense and delicate at the same time. All rough edges seem to have been removed by very careful distillation. Spicy, in a balanced way.

Finish: Wormwood bitterness lingering for long.

Overall: I personally like spicy absinthes, even when they are somehow rough. Butterfly is spicy and still perfectly balanced, not rough at all, with a sweetness which I find specific of other Bugnon’s products. A little jewel.
