Absinthe Substitutes
Disappointing how popular this still is.

Appearance: the good news is that the color is a good approximation of a true absinthe. The bad news is that it's artificially colored. ...

Just as good as the other Jades

In my glass, the green color is very transparent. It's like faintly colored water. The green that I can see is that typical jade-like green you see in all the...

Nice Absinthe.

Took a gamble on this one since there were no reviews on it and very little info online. At first it seemed plain (flavor), average, or even mediocre, but after...

Something a little different

Clear but vivid light green appearance, looks great in my glass. The louche happens fast unless you pour/drip very slow. Thick louche. The aroma is probably the stand-out characteristic of...

Normally I get concerned when a brand markets itself as a 'low anise' style absinthe. I always warn people that there is no such thing as absinthe without anise,...
