Taste - 10/20

Bitter. Not very smooth and almost no anise or fennel taste. Disappointing.

Yet it's rated to half it's potential?

The Rules

To quote Artemis:
QUOTE
I've begun adding reviews to the new Buyers Guide forum.

To save me a lot of work in the future, PLEASE:

Please format reviews EXACTLY as you see them here. For example, 7/10 not 7(10). Capitalize what I've capitalized, etc.


You might also want to cut and paste Alandia's blurb about the product to the top of your review.

Just trying to help Jim get his review posted. It's easy enough for us to put our reviews in the proper format. Artemis shouldn't have to edit every review before adding them to the permanent record.

What more do I need to do?


In terms of style (capitalization, etc.), if it's EXACTLY like the ones I do, I won't have to edit yours, just cut and paste it. If I have to edit it, I'm not too enthusiastic about that, and it just might stay where it is. That's fine with me, but it's not what the owner of the forum wants, so please cooperate.

As for the vendor's blurb, I'm not likely to use one I haven't seen in person on their website anyway, so don't go too far with that - it would help if you could point me to the website, though.

I was actually referring to the larger context. Bygones indeed. No apologies required.

It's encouraging to see this place as the site of the second and even third chance saloon. We can all take heart from that. abs-cheers.gif

Slight green but a bit more yellow.

Not necessarily a bad thing. With time (and much restraint) absinthes tend towards a yellow color.

Hmmm...interesting review. Did you really mean to say that the aroma is quite complex and too simple?

Actually, there's no star anise in the Segarra 68. Just huge amounts of green anise to balance out the bitterness from all the wormwood. Lots of people hate it because wormwood used in the coloration step makes it quite bitter. I don't mind it but it's not worth the money, especially at its recently inflated price.

By the way, you'd better edit your review to match the format of the others currently in the Buyer's Guide. And spell Segarra properly.
