Review:

Reviewed by Bruno Rygseck 6/3/2011

COLOR BEFORE WATER 9/10
Quite deep, green turning to golden.

LOUCHE ACTION 7/10
With patience this absinthe louches perfectly but I could not make it produce turbulent clouds, fine layers nevertheless.

COLOR AFTER WATER 8/10
Nearly opaque light green, not too white, natural looking.

AROMA 25/30
Neat: flowering wormwood, a little bit meady, some light fruity notes. Same after water, solid, proper absinthe aroma where individual herb aromas are combined in good balance.

MOUTH-FEEL 9/10
Tingling, velvety, cool, absolutely no burning or heat.

TASTE 16/20
Fine sweetness from anise, light herbal dryness that cannot be called 'bitter' in any other way but the way absinthe should be. Sweetness increases in aftertaste somewhat.

OVERALL IMPRESSION 9/10
Wonderfully many absinthe aromas and proper taste including sweetness packed in just 56% ABV. Very much recommended.
