This Absinthe is a great introduction for people new to the drink, though it does have its flaws. It uses cheaper star Anise which has gives it a stronger "black jellybean" flavor than it would have if regular Anise had been used. Also the use of so many different herbs in the second infusion really muddles the flavor with so many different very loud herbs in one drink.

Love at first sip
I am not a 'veteran' absinthe drinker; but this stuff is up there with the best French ones I have tried and loved. Yes, its anise based - that's a positive in my book - if you aren't into that go for that other type. Less sweet and more complex than pastis, this would be my go-to anise beverage except for the fairly high price. I typically alternate between this and Pacifique, another good west coast USA anise absinthe which is often about 30% cheaper, at least locally. I will probably try the some of the even more expensive European ones at Bevmo at some point - but more for variety than any real expectation that I will prefer them. (But I also am some fearful of the high amounts of artificial coloring in some of them.)

This is one of my favorite absinthes. My only complaint is that it uses quite a bit of star anise and I feel that the other herbs just serve a supporting role: the complexity is there, but the anise is dominant (though not as bad as Grande). With that said, I believe that this is a great absinthe for first timers mostly because of the ease of preparing it. It's already sweetened because of the brandy, so there's no need to do the sugar cube ritual. In fact, the head distiller recommends drinking it without sugar. All you have to do is add water, wait a few minutes for the herbs to tease out, and enjoy. (I use 5:1 water to absinthe)
