Amave is our absinthe of the month! Until the end of April you can get 10% off this absinthe and a free sample of OMG Gin.

In our opinion, Martin Zufanek is the producer of the finest Czech absinthe. Absinthe Amave just confirms the fact.

In hindsight, the absence of a blanche from Zufanek's range is surprising. What with all the other experimentation and collaborations going on, resulting in the fabulous St. Antoine, Mead Base, Grenouille and L'Ancienne, perhaps he just hadn't got around to it yet. We are glad he has now found the time.

Absinthe Amave
, the first Blanche from Zufanek, was worth the wait.

Amave is an aromatic clear absinthe, that takes its inspiration from classic Swiss La Bleue, the kind that was produced during the absinthe prohibition.

Absinthe connoisseurs will enjoy this absinthe. We see this absinthe as one that is also particularly suited to those starting out with absinthe. Absinthe Amave is exceedingly easy to drink, having a well balanced taste that is rounded off by a little fruity twist.

This absinthe is produced in accordance with traditional distillation techniques and selected herbs only.

Super Grundlage, einfach im Geschmack

Ich möchte hier meine Meinung zum Absinthe Amave von Martin Zufanek niederschreiben. Die Flasche sieht wie üblich aus, wie aus dem Apothekenregal entwendet. Ein Schraubverschluss ist nicht die edelste Variante als Verschluss, ich bevorzuge das jedoch gegenüber jedem Stopfen und Kork brauch ich grad gar nicht. Auf dem Bild ist die Flasche klar, ich habe eine braune Flasch erhalten. Das Etikett auch ohne goldene Verzierungen. Das Bild gefällt mir besser.
Das Etikett ist unaufdringlich in schwarz/weiß bzw. schwarz/silber gehalten. Das Logo ist floral geprägt und könnte ebenso von einem schlichten Rittergeschlecht stammen. Es ist auffallend unaufällig.
Der Inhalt pur absolut klar wie Wasser, riecht sehr frisch und fruchtig und mild. Hat ja auch nur 53%. Daher brennt es nicht in der Nase und wirkt sehr angenehm.
Pur verkostet brennt er nur zart im Mund im Vergleich zu vielen Artgenossen. Man kann den Moment kurz verweilen und erste Nuancen erhaschen. Vorn an der Zunge wird es rasch sehr süß. Erst beim Abschlucken sehr leicht bitter, wunderbar angenehm und ausgewogen.
Es bleibt nach ca. 3-5 Sekunden aber ein schönes prickeln auf der gesamten Zunge zurück ohne bitter zu sein. Das muss vom Anis kommen und schmeckt zufällig auch so.
Gibt man jetzt kaltes Wasser dazu beginnt es sofort etwas nervös und aufgeregt zu opalisieren. Mein Bibbleglas zeigt sehr schöne ölige, gleichmäßige Schlieren. Es dauert nicht lang, da ist der Boden der Bubble schon nicht mehr klar, sondern milchig. Das nimmt wie in einer voll laufenden Sanduhr schnell zu. Ein 3-Minuten-Ei kann man damit nicht kochen, nach spätestens 15-20s ist eine dicke Milch entstanden. Komplett dicht ist sie etwa 1:1,5 – 1:2 (Absinthe:Wasser) nicht.

Der Absinthe reicht jetzt nach gar nicht mehr viel. Es bleibt ein leichter Frühlingsduft zurück, so kann man es nennen. Frisch bis neutral, jeder Fruchtsaft riecht mehr. Ist grundsätzlich ok, besser als erdig oder muffig. Außerdem war das mit „nur“ 53% nicht viel anders zu erwarten.
Verdünnt angekostet stellt man fest, das 1:2 locker ausreicht. Fast schon zu dünn. Ich hätte mir hier etwas mehr erhofft. Auch hofft ich, etwas mehr Fenchel und Anis zu schmecken.
Positiv für mich, Wermut dominiert nicht, er ist auch kaum bitter mehr. Erst lang nach dem Schlucken merkt man noch etwas vom bitteren Inhalt.
Er schmeckt weiterhin der Rund, etwas fruchtig Richtung milder Orange oder Mandarine. Das Gefühl hatte ich noch nie. Vielleicht etwas Zitronengras, aber das ist klar geraten. Viel mehr kann ich gar nicht differenzieren und ich „spicke“. Noten von Aroma kann man mit etwas Fantasie mitgehen, es schmeckt ganz leicht holzig, aber auf keinem Fall negativ oder Richtung Eichenfasslagerung. Angenehm. „Subtile Bitterkeit“ trifft es dagegen voll.

All in All ein sehr guter Absinthe, wenig bitter. Für Anfänger klar geeignet, für Kenner sicher ein Muss, da aus dem Hause Zufanek. Die werden hier aber keine Überraschung finden.
Ich vergebe 3,5 Sterne, mit Tendenz Richtung 4. Also 7 von 10 Punkten.

Nice like all Zufanek produtcs. Full of taste, no need for sugar.

11 Jan 2018

This blanche is well-made, warm and full of nuance. It is a nice alternative to Swiss La Bleues, and brings another non-Swiss blanche to the market that is very high quality. Every single product from this distiller is worth buying. As far as the comment above about added sugar... no. It does not have added sugar. This is someone who likely is used to bitter products that are made incorrectly, hence the spelling "Absinth" with no "e". It is made by a great distiller, who works very hard to provide great, properly-made absinthes.

26 Apr 2017

The Amave from Zufanek is absolutely must try! Very similar to a Swiss La Bleue, it has a very refreshing anise and fennel, maybe a hint of mintyness . This is high quality absinthe for a low price. Simply delicious! :)

Zufanek, Czech Republic

zufanek

The Zufanek Distillery was founded in 2000. At first, the family focused on the production of honey and fruit based liqueurs. In 2008, Martin started to distill absinthe and the St. Antoine was the first one of this distillery. Shortly after the launch of St. Antoine, Martin created La Grenouille, and absinthe Mead Base. What's special about this distillery is that all fruit used for the production of their spirits are cultivated on their own orchards. Most of the herbs used for the absinthes are also grown by the Zufanek family themselves. Their mission is: 100% natural products.
