A vey good absinthe, better than I expected. The red color is glorious, the louche is thick, changing from red to pink to white as more water is added. Aroma and taste are those of a good absinthe, not exceeding in anise, with a lovely and unobtrusive flowery note of hibiscus. Tasty and well balanced, without rough edges. A little sugar makes it even smoother. It's going to be a permanent guest in my home canteen.
I thoroughly enjoyed this absinthe! A wonderful experience to taste, well balanced, and the louche is lovely. One of my best purchases yet! If you want to try something a little unique I highly recommend the rouge. A little personal note, try this without any sugar first and see how you like it. Enjoy it :)
Being that I'm relatively new to the absinthe experience, I must say I was quite surprised and pleased by this offering. The Adnams Rouge is not merely beautiful in the glass. It is delightfully delicate, well balanced and satisfying. This was my first venture away from the many verte's I have enjoyed, and I recommend this to anyone looking for something a bit different.
