I wanted to taste an absinthe with light anise flavour and aroma, so I gave it a try.
Very nice indeed I might say! I found it to have quite a pleasant bouquet of aromas,
light to the nose and pleasantly filling at the same time!
The palate is well balanced and soft with anise being present, but not overwhelming,
leaving wormwood to develop.
Doesn't have the heavy strike of other absinthes, especially compared to the ones with heavy anise flavor.
I find it to be an excellent absinthe, truly special and very refreshing.
I have to also note that I tasted it without any sugar and found it to be just perfect!
There is no heavy (if any) bitterness for the sugar to counterbalance,
so I didn't find it necessary to add any! A thin louche indeed (due to the little anise),
but it is "quietly" standing there, more observable if you enjoy it lightly dilluted
(about two measures of water for one measure absinthe).
For all the little I know, I give a full 5 star note!!
For all those who'd want to enjoy a light anise absinthe, I totally recommend it!
