Review Detail

 
Traditional Absinthe
Appearance: Very dark but natural brownish green color, akin to rotting olives. Clear and sediment free.

Louche: Lots of oil trail but no clouds. Just ends up a watered down version of the original appearance.

Aroma: Strong smelling almost rotten basil and mint combo. Menthol heavy and not what you expect from an absinthe.

Flavor: Not as bad as the smell but it tastes like an oily mint tea. There is a sticky texture to Knarr as well. No tastes of absinthe or the usual trinity or anything like that. This is not absinthe.

Finish: Heated and lingering from the flavor. Doesn't last too long though.

Overall: This is pretty much a fauxsinthe.
