From the LdF website:

White Fairy is an absinthe blanche developed by Liqueurs de France and produced by the Emile Pernot distillery. This absinthe is released at 60% alcohol, which, we discovered, allows its delicate aromas to be less hindered by a high alcohol punch. As such, it also comes closer than our well-received Un Emile La Blanche 68 to the style and alcohol content found in Swiss 'La Bleue', which is typically between 50 - 60 %, but White Fairy uses no star anise, thus minimizing the 'licorice-like' taste.

This was a decent blanche back when it first came out, but has fallen behind the curve of late, with so many high quality products making appearances.



Color: Clean and bright without sediment



Louche: Nice milky white louche. A bit weak, but not weak enough to drop it to a 3.



Aroma: Not unpleasant but weak. Clean and crisp but lacking character.



Flavor: Not bad, but unremarkable. It's clean and crisp with just a bit of off-putting bitterness. The anise is surprisingly light. It's definitely dominated by the wormwood, which seems to be of acceptable but not exceptional quality. It would benefit from a higher quality AA.



Finish: Unremarkable.



Overall: Back when I bought this, I was glad that I did. At this point, I probably wouldn't buy another bottle because there are better blanches available at the same price.
