Review Detail

 
Traditional Absinthe
Aroma : grande absinthe, angelica and mostly anise

Louche : very(too) quick and opaque

Flavor : the aroma was predicting something excellent but the flavor deceives. We find again the sweetness of the angelica but we mainly find a powerful inopportune bitterness. The Devoille mix of distillates is not correctly apportioned. Moreover, wouldn't the fruity, sweety & round side of this absinthe come from a heavy hand on star anise?

Finish : bitterness and roundness at the same time thanks to the star anise

Overall : Quality/price speaking, we can't say it's a bad product, the herb bill is there, but wrongly assembled, shame because Devoille could have made a very good starter range product, ala François Guy.
