According to

"Developed from an original Swiss absinthe recipe this Czech absinthe is free of colorings and preservatives. All the essential ingredients and herbs are carefully selected and processed to ensure the unique taste of Absinthe. The delicate process of maceration continues with the presence of herbs (the main one being wormwood) in the bottle."


Reviewed by Gertz 3/19/2005

A pale, not very intense green. Not artificial-looking, though.


A paler shade of the color before water. As mentioned, no louche; the one point is for not looking artificial.

AROMA 4/30
Mostly bad alcohol, with only the slightest hint of some other indefinable chemicals. A few points because the bad things could be more pronounced.

Slightly oily.

TASTE 1/20
Bitter with bitter and a long-lingering bitter aftertaste. Positively hard to swallow. After five or ten minutes, a slight hint of flavor from bad alcohol shines through the bitterness. Sugar only helps in amounts huge enough to completely mask any other taste.

To be avoided at all costs.

Gertz scores Absinth - King of Spirits 13 out of 100.

Reviewed by Bruno Rygseck 4/5/2011

Grayish weak green with fennel-seed like herbal particles, certain natural appeal it does have.

Weak louche with slow pour where the seedy fennels turdbulently danced.

Transparent hazy weak grayish yellow green.

AROMA 1/30
Neat or louched, stomach-upsetting fishy old soaked fennel aroma without anything else.

Bitterness overrides any other mouthfeel sensations.

TASTE 0/20
Disturbingly bitter without any herbal character or sweetness.


Bruno Rygseck scores King of Spirits 7 out of 100
