A good base, but needs a lot of work

Appearance: Very very very light. A tinge of yellow, but that's about it. At first glance, you'd think it's a flawed blanche. Louche: Extremely thin...

A different recipe from Pernod Fils; just as yummy

This was the second absinthe tasted in a comparison done on 9-2-14. The other was a Pernod Fils c1910. This bottle was made by Edouard Pernod, which had...

An Admirable Improvement

Appearance: Although their last iteration was artificially colored, it was not entirely off-putting as a color. This new version seems to keep the same hues, but does so naturally....

Is it the 1990's again?

Appearance: Radioactive green. Definitely artificially colored. Authentic absinthe is naturally colored with herbs. Aroma: Unlouched, it smells mainly of strong alcohol. Slight aromas of anise....

Why why why why?

If you're buying this, you don't care about appearance, you aren't planning on louching it, you don't care about the flavor, and you certainly could care less about finish. ...
