Electric emerald color. Rich aromas of sweet mint, anise, spicy apple custard pie, and gingerbread with a soft, bright, dry medium-to-full body and a hot, appealing, long straw, wormwood tea, mineral, and pepper finish. A rock solid, well balanced, and very drinkable absinthe with a nice core of fruit; louches nicely and evenly.

Absinthe is a distilled beverage made from a number of seeds and herbs, especially that of the wormwood plant. It is high in alcohol (between 45%-74%) and has, in literature, been referred to as a hallucinatory beverage, known as "the green fairy."

In reality, absinthe is a anise-flavored spirit that can contain ingredients such as fennel or aniseed. While there are many different styles of anise-based spirits throughout the world, such as Ouzo from Greece or Sambuca from Italy, absinthe is generally higher in alcohol.

Absinthe is diluted with water to make it palatable, given is high alcohol and bitter qualities. For some time, it was banned in France, as a neurotoxin in wormwood caused drinkers to become ill. Today, however, improved distillation methods have created a more tame absinthe and the spirit has regained much of its popularity, as well as its mysterious legend.
