Kubler's original (i.e. European) offering, at 53%, is a bit lighter in alcohol content than many other absinthes, but nonetheless shows itself as a very nice, refreshing blanche.



Color is very bright and clear, as would be expected from a blanche.

Louche begins quickly and builds well, with nice oil trails, and a clearly defined layering effect.

The aroma does have a bit of a medicinal herbal quality, but it still light and refreshing.

Flavor starts out well, with a nice anise sweetness which finishes with an alpine wormwood bitterness. Simple, yet extremely enjoyable.

Finish is light and creamy. Doesn't last long. That could be uninteresting while drinking solely, but advantageous if drinking while eating.

Overall: This is one of my top blanches. It's something that I use as an everyday blanche. It's simple and unpretentious. It always scratches the blanche absinthe itch. If the US version keeps up with the quality of the original, then I'm going to be a happy man.

Kubler 53% is a perfectly lovely, unpretentious blanche. It's everything it promises and while it may not deliver extraordinary complexity, it does serve as a delicious every day La Bleue.
Color: I gave it a "5". It's a blanche for God's sake and my glass was crystal clear.
Louche: Milky and thick. Perhaps too thick for some but I enjoyed it.
Aroma: A little too much alcohol/medicine. I would prefer a more herbal aroma.
Flavor: A bit simple but honest. Heavy anise with a nice Wormwood kick at the end.
Finish: Very good but not sustained. Clean and very refreshing but I prefer a taste that lingers after the drink is gone.
Overall: I really like Kubler 53%. I'd be happy to have a drink almost any day and I've enjoyed every drink I've ever had. Perhaps it's not exceptional but it is very, very tasty. It may not be the best La Bleue but it's a fine one and always has a place in my bar.
