Review Detail

 
Obsello Absenta
Traditional Absinthe
I like Spanish Absentas so I was excited to finally get a chance to taste Obsello. The aroma immediately reminded me of other modern and vintage absentas I've had the pleasure of drinking. It is a fond memory filled with anise and melissa. I was hoping to find a greener color (similar to the Obsello advertising photos) but it was barely green, leaning to more of a straw. The color is a minor preference.

I like Obsello. It is a very good absinthe that (to me) captures the essence of Spanish Absenta, rising above all the current offerings and closely approaching the vintage.
