The Big Daddy Of Lucid

In the glass, this is a pale and perfectly clear olive. After a solid yet unspectacular performance in the louche, the final colour is a tad thin, but still has...

The Man's Pre-Ban

A clear autumnal brown on pouring, this artisanal offering didn't have the same vibrant amber of the Pernod Fils 1910, the only other vintage absinthe I can compare this to....

Revisiting old ground

Coming in a nicely sized 700ml bottle labelled with a tasteful watercolour by Marilyn Manson, the aroma of the neat liquid is predominantly anise and alcohol. The colour is pale,...
