Appearance: A clear rusty dark red/orange combo. Almost like aged wine but a bit brighter. Beautiful.

Louche: A bit on the weak side but a wonderfully beautiful opalescent array with a fire-red center and grey edges when held up to the light.

Aroma: A wormwood heavy aroma that is also heavily floral. Fennel and anise are there but seem to be background notes.

Flavor: Wormwood and hibiscus bomb! Other herbs are definitely present and add a nice complexity but the wormwood and tangy “rouge” flavor take center stage. I think a little rose petal is also used but not entirely sure. Definitely a rouge and definitely a showcase of wormwood.

Finish: A tart finish with some citrus notes appearing. Bitterness ramps up quite a bit though.

Overall: A thankfully not overly sweet rouge. Lots of floral and citrus background rounds out the tangy rouge flavor. The finish is a bit strong and for once I found an absinthe better with just a touch of sugar. Definitely unique, as you would expect from a rouge, but very well done.
