Absinthe Abisinthe Amer 72 is probably one of the most renowned French absinthes for beginners and absinthe enthusiasts. It has the highest legal thujone level which is a factor many novices strive for. However, we’ve visited the Lemercier distillery a long time ago, and know that their absinthes are made using only natural ingredients, and after old, traditional recipes. This is why we think Abisinthe Amer offers much more than just an introduction into the world of absinthe. Let’s see what Stefanie thinks about it.
Color: Abisinthe Amer 72 has a light and very bright green color. It is not as dark green as other absinthes.
Aroma before water: Sweet notes are immediately present. This absinthe has a well-balanced aroma where none of the herbs is too dominant.
Louche: The louche develops evenly and neat without becoming too thick.
Aroma after adding water: The sweet touch isn’t as strong as before the addition of water.
Taste: A slightly bitter taste tickles the back of the tongue. Without knowing, you would never guess that this absinthe has an alcohol content of 72%. It is a mellow and easy-to-drink absinthe.
Overall Impression: I can understand why Abisinthe Amer 72 is always among the most popular absinthes on our website. It is very easy to drink and has a wonderful balance! Absinthe is always diluted to about the same strength before drinking, so the high alcohol content means you get more glasses from each bottle, making Abisinthe Amer 72 good value for money.
