Description: According to Liqueurs de France: Nemesinthe absinthe is the product of 12 months development between Liqueurs de France and an innovative Swiss company which was commissioned to co-develop a modern absinthe aimed at contemporary drinkers. Nemesinthe absinthe is produced at the Timbermill Distillery in South West London, famous for producing Bacardi's new ultra-premium Oxley gin. Nemesinthe is a link with history, a drink that conjures up the romance of the Belle Époque, with a fresh taste and original kick that will appeal to modern drinkers. Nemesinthe absinthe takes its inspiration from the ancient Greek Nemesis, although known as the Goddess of Vengeance and Retribution, Nemesis was also a distributor of fortune, in due proportion to each according to their deserts.

Review:

Reviewed by Bruno Rygseck 4/5/2011

COLOR BEFORE WATER 7/10
Dark green, no turning to yellow or brown with age. Quite OK.

LOUCHE ACTION 8/10
Louches well from bottom up when water is dripped into it.

COLOR AFTER WATER 7/10
Light green without much effects, somewhat grayish in color.

AROMA 12/30
Neat in the bottle or in the glass it has a strong candy-like anise aroma and a weak, kind of eucalyptus/camphor aroma (similar to some oil-mix Spanish absentas).

After louching the anise aroma weakens and a strong disturbingly perfumey odor/aroma dominates, especially when sipped.

MOUTH-FEEL 6/10
Nothing special but drinkable anyway.

TASTE 11/20
Anise sweet only slightly, more bitter than it should be to be enjoyable. Here again it is like oil-mix absinthes from Spain.

OVERALL IMPRESSION 5/10
I did not find it very enjoyable, however, it is "interestingly different" to put it nicely.
