94 PTS WINE ENTHUSIAST. Pale green color; the nose is predominantly anise, but some light floral aromas and a suggestion of citrus lurk in the backdrop; a sophisticated touch of bitter herbs.

Absinthe purists might scoff at this liqueur, but I find it very enjoyable. The lower alcohol content makes Absente a bit less strong than traditional absinthes. It also tends to be more flavorful than Pernod when prepared in the traditional way. I'm not sure it would be my choice for an authentic absinthe, though. The marketing behind it seems to be more along the lines of "You can be just like Van Gogh, Hemingway, etc. if you try this absinthe, watered down to the every-man's taste." That being said, I like what they've done with it. It's great stuff mixed with vanilla vodka and vermouth in a martini.

Not as smooth as the Grande Absente but every bit just as good. Full of flavour that unfolds as you drink it. Plus, it comes with a spoon so you can prepare it proper (and it makes a very nice louche too). Definitely recommended!

If you want the real McCoy get the Grande Absenthe but for just over half the price, this Absente is quite good and still packs the punch you expect from Absenthe.
