Review and Tasting


Sampled on 08/03/2016

Appearance:

Clear, yellow-green.

Aroma:

Herbal, grassy wormwood with gentian, lemon balm, anise, orange, mint, oregano and white pepper spice.

Taste:

Bittersweet with pronounced wormwood. Grassy, sweet white grapes, gentian bitterness, oregano, sage and zesty citrus.

Aftertaste:

Long lingering wormwood and gentian bitterness with white grapes and herbal complexity.

Overall:

To be termed a ‘vermouth’ requires a product to contain some wormwood. As this vermouth’s name suggests it contains generous quantities of Artemisia absinthium and so has pronounced bitterness.
