for Wine and Spirits Intl. UK

One of several absinthes in the Hapsburg range that offer a number of absinthes - or rather the same drink but at different alcohol levels. It is yet another "Bohemian style" absinthe, artificially colored and made from essences.

Absinthe reviews

Found this bottle all alone on the shelf in a place called "The Drive-in-bottleshop" in Kastrup, Denmark. So, on to the tasting...

At first I thought this would only taste and smell alcohol, but I was wrong! Sure it smells of alcohol, but tasting it neat actually gives a little more. Some anise and quite the bitterness. So, adding water to it produces barely no louche at all, but the taste smoothens and is actually not that bad at all. I added sugar aswell, which I believe further added a bit to the drinkability.

The taste itself is by no means perfect, and it is certainly not among the top brands, but it's not totally bad. I believe this whole product is made from oils and essences, nothing else. The colour is certainly green, actually, a little blue-ish! It's not worth the money and don't expect anything out of the ordinary.
