Absinthe Vit Opal Tasting Notes by Marc Thuillier

Absinthe Vit Opal is a clear absinthe distilled in Sweden. Its igredients include wildly grown wormwood, which offers a very distinct and rare taste. Read for yourself!

 

 

Aroma before water: fresh, floral, with highly perfumed notes of wormwood, fennel and anise.

Louche: forms quickly and in a lovely way. The absinthe becomes rapidly milky and leaves oily trails on the rim of the glass.

Aroma after water: a strong minty note of wild wormwood now takes control.

Taste: very creamy and very refreshing at the same time. The wormwood plays the Grand Master by dominating all the other herbs.

After-taste: palate is invaded by wormwoody notes with a background layer from anise, fennel, and SPRING!

Conclusion: Vit Opal is far away from a classic Swiss Bleue profile. In some way, it shows its northern provenance by demonstrating some kind of wildness. It’s creamy like a winter absinthe but at the same time refreshing like a spring absinthe.
