Obsello Absinthe Verte $54.

Hazy forest green color. Rich aromas of anise, saddle soap, orange spice cake, menthol, nuts, and mint tea follow through on soft, silky entry to a dryish medium-full body with accents of dried citrus and wintergreen. Finishes with a long, herbal anise seed and white pepper fade. A big, brawny absinthe. Tasted louched as an absinthe cocktail: Murky, milky green color. Dry oily texture. More hints of nutshell and cocoa. Herbs integrate with the anise and wormwood bitterness becomes more pronounced and astringent.
