Review Detail

 
Duplais Verte
Traditional Absinthe
The colour is very nice. It's nearly peridot, beginning to turn amber. Natural and clear. Louched, it's a jade green with lots of nuance, not too thick and not too thin. The aroma is a combination of floral, medicinal, and grassy, with citrus notes and a hint of sweet anise. The flavour is floral and fruity, with a good bit of coriander. Texture is disappointingly thin. The finish is moderately bitter, dominated by citrus, and short-lived. Annoying flaws for an otherwise tasty absinthe. However this is an older batch so some of these issues may have been corrected by now.
