Review Detail

 
Absenta Serpis
Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: A glowing orangey-red. Clearly artificial, but it's not unappealing.

Louche: A peachy apricot color with deeper red reflections. Very attractive, and has just the right translucency.

Aroma: Minimal aroma around 3:1...the slight aroma detectable is particularly anise heavy in a black licorice sort of way.

Flavor: Anise and extremely sweet, with some nice candied floral flavors.

Finish: Very lengthy finish; wormwood and a bit of fruit and caraway, with an enduring sweetness which eventually rounds back to anise.

Overall: Surprisingly tasty. It is a shame it's artificially colored, but it wouldn't keep me from having a bottle in my collection.
