It was this product that piqued my curiosity for absinthe in the first place. And, having had a few of the US-available brands, I still find it pleasant. Unlike real absinthe, Absente has an almost candy-like taste when prepared with a sugar cube. The color looks artificial, but is pleasing to the eye. The louche looks more like a soluability/precipitation exercise from Chemistry class than the traditional cloudiness of Absinthe.



I agree with some of the others who say that you save this for those guests who can't appreciate the real thing. It definitely tastes different from real absinthe, but as a spirit, it is a very good drink. Most people I have given it to have found it enjoyable.
