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.
