A clear winner

Color before adding water is as perfect clear; the aroma prior to loucheing has a strong woody tone characteristic of wormwood. After adding the water the other fragrances come out...

Fantastic every day Absinthe

The aroma is fruity and with a hint of citrus along with the expected Anise and Wormwood. The flavor again has a very pleasant note of fruitiness that is paired...

A very good standard offering

I would describe the flavor as herbal and minty with a notion of fruity citrus undertones. This brand is a great offering and would be a fantastic introduction to Absinthe....

Vieux Pontarlier seems like it could have been great absinthe that hits all the right notes and has a pleasant flavor. But there is a hint of an odor and...
