This absinthe would be a good place to start for a newcomer, especially included in a flight of several of the basic-style absinthes.



The color wasn't the best, with a straw/hay look. Not much green there at all, but natural, and not unpleasant.



Watering didn't add much louche. Very light oil trails led to nothing more than just a slightly cloudy appearance.



Aroma before water was a bit 'alcoholy' but not overly unpleasant with herbal undertones.



Mouthfeel was thicker and more pleasant than expected. The taste was clean and refreshing but just a bit too dry in the finish. This could be compensated by the addition of sugar, I think. Wormwood and fennel dominate with hints of anis.



Overall, a pleasantly simple absinthe that I would consider very good for its time when it first came out. Nowadays, it's a bit behind the curve, but again, not bad.
