Review Detail

Batch 9-15, Bottle 47

Color: This bottle is about a year old, so the color has faded a bit, but it's still a very nice golden green, almost like olive oil. Some Fuille Morte has obviously occured, but the bottle has been stored in a cool dark cabinet since I got it, so it's from aging, not improper storage.

Louche: Very nice layering that ends with a wonderful green opalescence.

Aroma: Clean and crisp with a nice balance of herbs. Anise is well balanced with wormwood. Inviting.

Flavor: I see why Peridot mentions this as an almost savory absinthe. While the sweetness from the anise is there, there is also an earty and marine like quality that is intriguing and enjoyable. The herbs are well balanced, with nothing being too dominant.

Finish: A nice, well rounded finish as well. Not a lot of numbing, which I find to be a good thing. Too much numbing and you can't enjoy it anymore. My only complaint with the finish is that I'd like to have it hang around a bit more.

Overall: An obviously well made absinthe. It's going to be hard to find anyone that won't enjoy it.
