Review Detail

 
Absenta Serpis
Traditional Absinthe
This bottle is 9 years old, and still is as red as the day I bought it.



Color: It's Serpis. Need I say more?

Louche: Great louche with vivid trails that slowly build up to a peachy opalescence with pronounced layering. Quite beautiful actually.

Aroma: As expected, lots of anise with just a hint of wormwood. Quite fruity as well.

Flavor: Again, tons of anise, which is exactly what you'd expect from a popular Spanish brand. Fruity and refreshing. I'd never add sugar to this, as it's already quite sweet.

Finish: Lots of lingering sweetness from the anise along with a slightly fruity medicinal aftertaste on the back and sides of the tongue.

Overall, I'll always have a spot in my heart for Serpis. Other than the red/peach coloring, it's exactly what one should expect from a Spanish absenta.
