Review Detail

 
Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: nothing to say, a medium peridot green, with no sediment.

Louche: thick oily trails from the very beginning, then a lot of orange at the bottom of the glass, with a clearly distinct top layer. At 1:4 the green color is still very intense, more than I expected given the original color. At 1:5 the louche starts weakening but still keeps its green color and some orange and blue reflexes.

Aroma: Before adding water the aroma is not very strong. One can perceive mostly anise and fennel, with some alcohol. With water the aroma does not intensify much, and wormwood becomes more evident.

Taste: More wormwood than anise, the taste is neither intense nor complex. Rather bitter than sweet, one could say it is a dry absinthe. Very fresh, neat.

Finish: some bitterness and some tongue numbness.

Overall: this could be the right absinthe for those who are not too fond of anise and like dry beverages. The price/quality ratio is not bad, but I fail to find something remarkable here.
