Review Detail

 
François Guy
Traditional Absinthe
The absinthe is the colour of pale straw with a hint of green. It appears natural and clear. The louche is attractive and interesting, building from the bottom, but it's over quickly. After water it's pearl white and a bit too thick. Looks like a blanche. The aroma is mostly anise with a bit of wormwood peeking through, with earthy tones. Simple but very pleasant. No surprises in the flavour, except that the wormwood is stronger than in the aroma. Otherwise what I taste is what I smell. There's more tongue-numbing than creaminess in the texture. The finish is crisp and refreshing. A tasty enough absinthe but definitely isn't an herbal powerhouse.
