The ancient recipe of this sugarless absinthe is obtained especially by distillation of a mixture of green anise and wormwood. However, many other plants, finely selected, are also part of its composition: star anise, fennel, gentian or even mugwort. Abisinthe Amer 72’s natural colour is obtained by infusion of plants.
Probably the most powerful aniseed absinthe !
Nose : Suggests a very present green anise on a light grand wormwood scent.
Palate : Simple and strong. The green anise remains accompanied by notes of fennel and an impressive bitterness.
Finish : Good length. Marked by bitterness and green anise, both of them spectacular.

This is a lovely absinthe despite the aniseed power which works well with its soul anyway. Not complex but just a nice balance of anise and wormwood with an earthy hit. Very silky smooth and kicky. Simple but perfect in its own right. Pour it to your preferred levels and it will repay in kind.
