Review and Tasting

Sampled on 30/05/2016

Appearance

Clear but not bright, very pale straw yellow with faint green tinge. Light louche with water.

Aroma

Pungent star anise and fennel with wormwood, lemon verbena and very faint rose blossom. Water reveals potpourri and herbal complexity.

Taste

Aniseed and peppermint freshness explodes on the palate with bitter wormwood and liquorice. Peppermint is amplified and sweetness emerges with water.

Aftertaste

Liquorice lingers on the long aniseed finish.

Overall

Liquorice notes make this complex Californian absinthe distinctly pastis-like. Try from the freezer diluted with 1.5 to 2 parts well-chilled water with the merest dash of sugar syrup.
