The colour is very profound, green and what not. Taking into account a big stalk of hyssop in the bottle, it is no wonder the colouration is an on-going process.

Louche is very delicate, it does louche, but gets only slight opalescence.

Aroma is strong, sometimes too strong due to the overcolouration. Pleasant in a sense if nothing fascinating.

Absinthe tastes of macerated wormwood and macerated herbs (hyssop the most dominant there) from the bottle. Taste reflects the strength of the aroma.

Definitely, absinthe should not be coloured at such a low abv as 60% and leaving some of the colouring herbs in the bottle is a no-no, absinthe is not a borovicka (where in many a case, we can see a big juniper right in the bottle, but doing little to no harm, though).

Reality absinth is one of my favorites by far. I have had many bottles of the stuff. The color of the liquor before water is added is a deep green which I enjoy seeing. It is hard to get the louche to come out and play, you have to mix it slowly and with sugar for sure. Once it changes it becomes a cloudy swirling hazy green, which I have heard people describe as swamp water. As for the aroma, it is bitter with herbal tones and a definate alcohol tinge. This is a very bitter absinth! If you do not like bitters do not buy this, I love the taste of reality. The finish, once again is bitter, so I gave it a 2. Overall this is a High quality, all natural czech absinth. I will certainly be buying much more.



[editor's note: The review doesn't make much sense. Giving a louche and aroma of 3 and a finish of 2, then an overall of 5?]

This was my third bottle and the chezc version is defiantly not my style of absinthe. I prefer the French style with a hypnotizing luoche. Reality looks really cool but taste awful, close to throwing up haha. But the effects are unparallel. Not really much of a louche.
