Review Detail

 
Brevans H.R. Giger
Traditional Absinthe
Color: An inviting deep green.

Louche: No real layering. Instead, more of a general build up. Turns out to be a very nice shade of light green.

Aroma: Very light and refreshing with hints of anise and fennel. Not as much wormwood as I'd expect in the nose. Undertones of fresh cut grass.

Flavor: More wormwood comes through in the flavor than in the nose. I'd like more anise and some earthy fennel to round it out a bit more. There's just a hint of some alcohol bite at the end.

Finish: The finish is enjoyable, but I had to penalize it because it recedes very quickly. I'd like it to hang around more.

Overall: Nice and spicy. An overall enjoyable beverage. Not a favorite of mine, but still good. There's no doubt its a quality brand.

A pretty decent offering, but could use some tweak
