LA CLANDESTINE ABSINTHE 700ML
A medium to full bodied absinthe with an initial natural anise sweetness giving way to a mild wormwood bitterness. There is a pleasant numbness with an alphine meadow freshness
Pale and clear with some minor particles evident. Opens unexpectedly sweet and raw sugar like before releasing drier scents of kumquat paste, (tarragon / sage?) and curry leaf over deep anise, the latter amplified after aeration. Gains added freshness and definition in the later passes. Lean and light on entry developing texture and attitude at the mid palate stage with a slow motion, penetrating attack of dried herbs, peppermint and anise fanning out; excellent bitter-sweet balance. Outstanding length. Concludes long, piney, fresh and mildly tongue numbing. Great poise and persistence.
Impressive. 53% Alc./Vol.
