Review Detail

 
Rubis
Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: It should be red but it's not at all. The bottle was opened in April 2012. Between green and cognac.

Louche: An extremely light louche, as it often happens with Pernot’s products, with more orange than usual.

Aroma: Holy trinity, with little anise and some hibiscus scent.

Flavor: Holy trinity, a heavy medicinale taste, some unexpected bitterness but unpleasant, the acrid taste of hybiscus.

Finish: Only the worst stays, for long.

Overall: In a word: awful, but please remind I tasted a sample sent to me by a friend, the reminder of a bottle opened long ago. This is clearly not an absinthe to let age. I expected so much from it, Iooking forward to tasting it, but those curious for red absinthe may give up looking for the remaining bottles as they are likely to be much better served by recent Adnam’s or Awen.
