Eichelberger, Germany

The Eichelberger Distillery is located in the southeast of Germany, in the forested Bavarian region called “Oberpfälzer Seenland”. The distillery is a family business, and developed from a hobby to a serious enterprise. Dr. Lili and Rudi Wild, married for a long time, followed their dream and opened a small distillery.

It is quite modern, and capable of distilling just 30 liters at a time, but the couple always pay attention to the quality of their results. The Wilds are passionate advocates of fine liqueurs and eau-de-vies, and were enthusiastic when approached with the idea of making a ‘specialist's' absinthe under their distillery's name, which has now become the first modern, yet traditionally distilled German absinthe: The Absinthe Eichelberger.

Very good. My first time trying Absinthe. Has a strong black licorice flavor. Very good with the water and sugar. Very potent. 5 stars.

No sugar added.

Color: intense peridot (not feuille morte but more greeney).
Louche: good slow start but short ending, definitely weak, disappointing.
Aroma: licorice, wormwood dominated.
Taste: wormwood based, licorice, a bit medicinal, spicy, anise overpowered by roughness.
Finish: strong spicy bite, throat-rasping, no mouth-numbing.
Effect: alcoholic, similar to whisky even after louche.

CONCLUSION: a severe and very straight shot. It's the first german absinthe I've tried and it's definitely much more dry and coarse than any french or swiss brands I've tasted so far. Not creamy nor refreshingly watery, just a manly shot. Adding sugar will only add to the spiciness. Probably less overwhelmingly alcoholic versions like 68 or 70 can open more flavors without diluting in excess, but unless more anise is present on them the overall sharp profile will remain the same. Definitely a refined strong spirit to tame or knock you out every now and then, but not what I look for in absinthe.

Very smooth Absinthe. It's strong but not over powering and has a strong Anise taste but super smooth, and the color is an amazing Natural green I was shocked when I poured it into a glass I wasn't expecting a natural colored absinthe to be so green. I will be a returning customer for this in the future and the bottle is just cool looking. I'd considered it to be collectable for a conversation piece in the future too.
