Review Detail

 
François Guy
Traditional Absinthe
The color of this absinthe can't quite be called a verte as its more of a pale yellow. The louche forms almost immediately so there really isn't much of a display to enjoy at all. Now that we have the crtitiques over with its all pretty good from here on with the aroma spreading nicely throughout the room . I didn't like the taste at first but I had only tried Spanish absinthes.I really grew to like this one though it would have been better if it was a little stronger. The anise is not so strong as one woould expect and the wormwood really gives it a bitter kick. There is something interesting going on as the absinthe had an almost rooty nutty quality I hadn't expected and this is what turned me off at the start. Very interesting and complex.I'd buy it again. The bottle also has a nice classic design that is a nice keeper.

A quality absinthe at a decent price.
