Thanks to the generosity of a fellow WS member, I eagerly awaited this absinthe, but was ultimately disappointed. The aroma, while room-filling, was decidedly off-putting, reminding me of dandelions. This aroma has presented itself before in the Matter products, but not to nearly this degree. The color was beautiful though, and the louche was thick but fast and lacking in opalescence. Good wormwood bite in the finish though, perhaps the best thing about this absinthe.



Ultimately I feel that, while clearly a very well made absinthe, the ingredient choices put it beyond even quirky absinthes like the Montemarte and the Eichelberger Verte, into another realm altogether. Just not to my taste at all.
