Review Detail

 
Verte de Fougerolles
Traditional Absinthe
Color: light green with hints of straw

Louche: using the lady fountain, I got some great layering. Louche was extremely thick: almost too thick.

Aroma: lots of anise with a touch of wormwood behind it. I can't make out much else due to the strength of the anise.

Flavor: First impression is nice, with a well rounded sweetness and bitterness playing out, but at the tail end, it does a 180 and has a bit of acridity.

Finish: There's something that I can't put my finger on, but I don't like it at all. Theres just a bit of lingering bitterness.

Overall: If the issue with the finish were to be corrected, this would be an enjoyable, mid-range absinthe that would probably work really well in an absinthe frappe.
