According to http://www.absinthe-montmartre.com

"Absinthe Montmartre is the first and probably only traditionally distilled, naturally colored, austrian premium Absinthe. A true old-viennese speciality and, as the title of this writing allready hints at, "the rebirth of an old tradition"."


AVERAGE SCORE 71


Reviewed by Hartsmar 3/3/2005

COLOR BEFORE WATER 7/10
Slightly hazed and not as clear as might be expected. Nice dark green color though.

LOUCHE ACTION 6/10
Slowly appearing, with very nice oily patterns during louching - holds a fine clear layer on top until finished. A slight deduction in points for ending up a bit thin.

COLOR AFTER WATER 8/10
Still a very nice green - not as dark. Could be a bit lighter to be perfect, but doesn't present the overly neon green louche presented in some others.

AROMA 22/30
A very heavy and complex aroma before adding water. Slightly grassy, but this could also be partly due to the many "special" ingredients. After adding water it literally fills the room with its herbal scents. Very nice.

MOUTH-FEEL 7/10
It presents a nice rich and full mouth-feel. Smooth and very interesting, yet slightly flat in the end.

TASTE 14/20
A very nice, herbal taste and in a way a bit spicy. It might do good from blending just a bit better, but it's very good. Some grassy notes can be detected, but not enough to make it the least bit bad.

OVERALL IMPRESSION 7/10
It does need some work to make it perfect and let the flavors blend a bit better. Understandably it's not easy to get an absinthe with all those ingredients to be perfect on the first run. The Montmartre is a very good absinthe.

Hartsmar scores Absinthe Montmartre 65 (Premiere Edition) 71 out of 100
