Fruity, this absinthe is very refreshing. Probably the best, considering the quality price ratio. Read the whole description
With England and Andora, Spain is part of the rare countries to have never suffered of the forbidding to produce absinthe.
The production of Philippe Lasala absinthe started before the spanish civil war (1936-1939). It is still produced according to the same recipe.
- First, savour Lasala with half a piece of sugar. Then, accordng to your taste, add more or less.
- For one measure of absinthe (3cl), add 2 to 5 measures of fresh water.

This is honestly the most refreshing absinthe I've tasted. It does contain some citrus taste which in my opinion is a lovely addition. Indeed it has relatively less alcohol that some absinthes, but still after two glasses you can really notice the alcohol that is in there. One of my favorites.

Very affordable and comes in 1 litre bottle which is great. I used this to make absinthe cocktails and also to drink straight up. For cocktail use, I'd say the anise flavour is a bit too strong and will slightly dominate the taste of the drink. On the other hand, it's clearly better than some of the 1-star absinthes I've tasted. Taken straight up, the taste is great and reminds me of a brand of Turkish Raki.

This represents astonishing value for money when one considers the amount you get for the price and the decent quality of the stuff. It's more complex than I imagined with subtle hints of peppery spice to complement the blithe citrus undertones. There's a pleasing kick of anise but it's not crude and it won't blow the back of your head off.
I'd happily buy this again and would recommend it as an everyday absinthe that's gentle on the purse.

Not crazy about this Spanish absinthe. It's a mixed essence and therefore to me is lower quality. It's decent enough for using in mixing cocktails and is a nice low proof, low price option for a beginner.

Okay, so it breaks all the absinthe rules, but if you fill a glass with ice, pour an ounce of Lasala, and then top it with some ice cold cream soda, you got one heck of a delicious beverage. How many nights have I enjoyed this creation? I cannot count, but I enjoyed them all.
Also if you mix an ounce of Lasala with an ounce of brandy, shake it in ice, and pour. We call it a 'Gilgamesh.' Excellent little shooter that you might want to sip.
Lasala seems to taste best the colder you serve it.

Excellent value, low in alcohol but nice and refreshing. Nice if you want something light before or after a meal.

Lightly citrusy, clean, smooth and best of all shockingly inexpensive. Philippe Lasala is an excellent starting point for the beginning absintheur.

I liked Lasala Absinthe. It's very refreshing and those lemony notes make it an ideal companion while having a light dinner with your friends. Nice Spanish absinthe, distilled its better.
