90-95 points Superb/Highly Recommended, Wine Enthusiast: "The bouquet features appealing aromas of licorice that are simultaneously dry, spicy, herbal and vegetal. Palate entry is first dry then off-dry, minerally, slatey and anise-like; mid-palate features the anise, but also nicely salty tastes of mace and sage that overlap with the mineral, concrete aspect. Finishes bitter, herbal, with a hint of anise and salt. (Oct 2009)"

Wall Street Journal: "Good. Classic anise-forward absinthe. Flavorful without being strident. (5/9/09)"

The original absinthe returns to its roots. Though technically thujone-free -- with less than 10 parts per million of thujone, the chemical in grand wormwood that led to the banning of absinthe in the early 20th century -- this is considered the "real deal." In addition to wormwood, absinthe usually contains fennel and anise, along with other herbal ingredients. Serve in the time honored manner, "touched" with water poured over a sugar cube, placed on a slotted spoon. Wall Street Journal: "Good. Classic anise-forward absinthe. Flavorful without being strident. (5/9/09)"
