Review Detail

 
Duplais Verte
Traditional Absinthe
Color is a unique, deep green hue, to the extent of an emerald shade. Fascinating..
Slow forming louche with a resulting thick, almost solid, milky finish. The final color was translucent, rich, and green with amber highlights.
The aromas after louche emerged as a sweet balance with room filling herbal notes accompanied by a slight anise to the front. Wormwood and fennel began to emerge with hints of spice.
A rich, creamy mouth feel with outstanding, refreshing taste, slight numbness with substantial fennel and wormwood. A controlled, long, finish.
This Duplais Verte is about two years old. The taste has matured and the slight alcohol presence has mellowed into an excellent absinthe. If you have the opportunity to mature this absinthe just a bit, it will be worthwhile.
