Reviewed by Absinthesizer 4/25/2006

COLOR BEFORE WATER 2/10
Mouthwash green - “It looks like it should be mint-flavored,” said my friend's wife.

LOUCHE ACTION 0/10
None whatsoever. It made me wonder what gave it any anise aroma at all.

COLOR AFTER WATER 1/10
Identical to color before water.

AROMA 7/30
The first whiff out of the bottle wasn’t bad. There was a distinct anise scent. After pouring, though, a medicinal mouthwash scent dominated.

MOUTH-FEEL 3/10
This was difficult to judge because - since it tasted so terrible - I had to fight the reflex to get it out of my mouth as quickly as possible. There was some pleasant tongue-tingling, though.

TASTE 4/20
Bitter and medicinal. That first whiff of anise was long gone - perhaps it had floated up to the top of the bottle and evaporated upon opening? Is that possible?

OVERALL IMPRESSION 1/10
I had heard the phrase “Czech swill,” but I never knew what it meant until now; now the words are seared on my tongue - almost literally.

PERSONAL NOTES
After one small glass, I switched to some Bulgarian meztika, which was vastly superior. My friend continued drinking the absinth, and claimed later that it made him feel a little bit different than his usual alcohol. Since I had so little, I can neither confirm nor deny this; nor am I willing to subject myself to it again in order to test his claim.

COLOR BEFORE WATER 1/10
It would be better if it had a clear color instead of this bluish one (E133/E102). This producer has also red and black color variations of this product. So… they just change the „E” colorants… Oh my…

LOUCHE ACTION 0/10
No Louche.

COLOR AFTER WATER 1/10
Water with bluish color. Unpleasant.

AROMA 5/30
Sweet candy mint, something like fennel and wormwood scent. It seems like there is cheap spirit mixed with cheap herbal essences. Flavor doesn’t fill the room, just stays in a bottle.

MOUTH-FEEL 3/10
A little numbing on a tongue tip. Cold breath, like after mint chewing gum.

TASTE 4/20
Undrinkable! Nothing natural and herbal in it, just cheep spirit and essences. Also there is sugar added.

OVERALL IMPRESSION 3/10
It’s just waste of money and health! It is not Absinthe, it is just Absinth. This drink reminds me every time of a mouthwash or tooth paste. The only reason I’ve put 3 points here, because this was the first absinthe I have tasted and it hasn’t ruined my image of the real legendary drink, and has made me to continue my absinthe experience, but please - if you want to try real absinthe, or just good alcohol beverage don’t buy this one!

PERSONAL NOTES
I have made this review only after I have tasted a real (distillated) absinthe.
