Review Detail

 
Absenta Serpis
Traditional Absinthe
Color: The color is very pretty with a warm flame-like red that is definitely artificial.

Louche: The louche turns a milky orange-rose like color. Translucency is just about spot on but the artificial coloring still shows by a large amount. Pretty but not natural.

Aroma: Anise heavy and simple aroma. There's other stuff in there too but they are hard to pick out.

Flavor: This is very sweet with no added sugar. Just like the aroma the taste is very anise heavy, unbalanced, and simple. There are some floral tones but they are very subdued. It tastes good but it's not anything really wonderful.

Finish: The wormwood comes out here just a bit as well as something peppery. The finish lasts a good while but changes only slightly.

Overall: This is good for anise lovers but overall it is unbalanced and oddly sweet. Reminds me of some of the simpler blanches out there.
