Review Detail

 
Traditional Absinthe
Color- Bright green but something about it makes it too artificial. No sediment.

Louche- Thick oil trails. Meniscus present until about a 2 to 1 ration. Too thick when completed. Extremely green for a fully louched absinthe.

Aroma- Anise with cucumbers and pine. A fair amount of alcohol heat. Not much else going on and it’s quite imbalanced.

Flavor- Cucumbers, pine and astringent wormwood/alcohol. It’s not the worst tasting thing in the world; just way too peculiar and one-dimensional for an absinthe.

Finish- Very basic with a candy-like anise aftertaste. No other lingering flavors to be found. I didn’t find the wormwood to be too harsh as others have noted.

Overall- Not very enjoyable in a typical absinthe drip. If you happen to procure a bottle I would recommend using it in cocktails.
