Review Detail

 
Brevans A. O. Spare
Traditional Absinthe
Color: An amazing bright green that is exactly what comes to mind when I think of absinthe green.

Louche: Really beautiful louche, starting with turbulent, spinning oils, showing some amber, and bluish clouds, ending in a very pleasant, slightly translucent pale green with red and orange flashes.

Aroma: There is some vanilla when neat but not so much of a presence when louched. There's a great balance between the trinity, along with some nice melissa backing. Fairly sweet.

Flavor: I was afraid it would be too warm based off of the smell, but it's much more of a "cold" flavor. The flavor that's present is good, but not as pronounced as I would like. The same flavor, but bolder, would be ideal.

Finish: The finish is great: yummy and warm and very numb and tingly. Very refreshing.

Overall: This absinthe is great. If only the flavor was a tad stronger, it would be perfect.
