Taste of perfectly made licorice with bitterness of quality made wormwood, stimulating tongue and palate. Pleasant sweetness from fennel and anise. Well balanced without any overtones. No spinach of chlorophyll colorants. Long lasting with all the nuances of distilled herbs, plants and spices. A truly authentic absinthe.
Wine Enthusiast 89 points - Aromas of popcorn, vinyl, wet cement and chalk; aeration introduces a medicinal yet earthy odor. Palate entry features unfolding flavors of anise, metal, legumes and vegetable broth; at midpalate the alcohol intensity abates as tastes of mushrooms, black peppercorn, aniseed and chalk accelerate. Finish is extended, mossy and not too sweet. - P.P. (Aug 2009)
"Clear, intense and hot with bitter licorice and anise notes, plus herbs, mint and complex spice flavors; long, silky and persistent."
