this is a grain-alcohol based 'sinthe whereas the good proper ones in France & Switzerland are made from grape-alcohol base which is smoother, rounder and fruitier (and just more pleasant to drink.) this is a so-so 'absinthe' made state-side . the best absinthes are the ones the French & Swiss are producing .

A great absinthe cheap enough to be an 'any day' type drink. Although it lacks the qualities that would put it in the top range in the world, I love the kick it carries, more so than other absinthes. I have a bottle of this guy sitting my desk for emergencies!

Crazy good; I had it at a trade show and it took my breath away. I just wish I could afford it. Louches beautifully, and has a balanced bouquet of herbs.

Distillation is excellent, nicely complex, balanced, interesting absinthe that is well done. Price is amazing especially compared to many of the other artisanal absinthes on the market. Best absinthe out there for the money by far.
