Review Detail

 
Brevans A. O. Spare
Traditional Absinthe
Color- Deep inviting forest green. No Sediment
Louche- Slow transition with a defined meniscus. Green blue refractions under natural sunlight. The louche might be a tad too thick at the end.

Aroma- Anise with a carmely/powdery smell. Certainly reminds me of some Jade products. Well balanced and savory.

Flavor- Comingling of sweet anise and wormwood is perfect . Powdery hyssop mixes with the carmel flavors and herbaceous notes and is unique. I would rate the taste as more robust than fresh. Very complex and enjoyable.

Finish- Wormwood and hyssop leads into anise. Medium lasting but complex while it lasts.

Overall- A fine addition to the Matter line up of absinthes. AO Spare reminds me of a Jade in a lot of ways but is definitely unique in the combination of flavors. Well done.
