Proof66 Notes

Grande Absente is the newest absinthe offering from France, which--unlike its milder predecessor Absente--promises to have the full, original dosage of the legendary wormwood. This is said to be the original recipe that inspired the "bohemian artists" of the "Belle Epoque" era.

Grande Absente is imported into the United States exclusively by Crillon Importers.

While I hate absinthe my friends have enjoyed this when I prepare it for them . Does what absinthe is supposed to do and is relatively smooth when prepared with a sugar cube and some ice water.

My brother got me this bottle as a Christmas present because I had never tried absinthe. So this was my first foray into this exotic liqueur. I thoroughly enjoyed the sweet licorice like taste. One does have to water it down due to its high proof and sweeten it with a sugar cube. The company recommends 3/2 ratio water to absinthe. If one is thinking of trying Absinthe and can afford this bottle, I strongly recommend it. It is smooth and surprisingly refreshing.

One of the better absinthes on the mass-market now. Distillation is good, reasonably complex but balanced. Easy-to-find overseas.
