Before making my purchase, I contacted the store with some questions and advising them of my particular tastes. I am not a fan of bitter in anything I consume. My first attempts down the absinthe road left my mouth numb for days on end. Not to mention the puckered lip effect.
The response came very quickly, informative and with a few suggestions.
Blanche Neige was the one I went for....OMG!!
I love, love, love this absinthe. Was mesmerized watching the louche present itself to a beautiful white. The teeny hint of bitterness is quickly pushed aside by the sweetness and anise, leaving a gorgeous lingering taste in the mouth like fruit and aniseed but with something magical added in.
First I tried it with two parts water, made it a bit too watery for me, so now I drink it with a 1-1 ratio. No sugar is needed.
For anyone who is afraid to try Absinthe because of the bitterness, but likes subtle sweet and anise, I say, give this one a go. You will definitely not be disappointed.
