The premier independent absinthe resource since 2003

Musset didn't write the way he did because he drank absinthe, instead he drank for the same reason for which he wrote just like that: namely out of despair.

Absinthe reviews

Right after pouring the remaining Segarra 68 out of the glass, and in to the zink, I poured myself a glass of the Serpis 65. Just as the regular Serpis Classic at 55%, this one is a glowing red color, and looks nothing like absinthe. The taste in this one differs a bit from the 55, though. It louches with that same 7-eleven slush drink orange-y color, but has a more real absinthe taste to it. Maybe they've altered the recipe a bit for this one, maybe not - but it doesn't taste quite the same.

So, how does it taste? First off, there is - as in most spanish absentas, a good bit of anise. However in this one, not at all as overwhelming as in the 55 version. I dilluted this one only at a ratio of 1:2 and it tastes really good. It's certainly an improvement. In all I really don't think there is all that much to say. It's a nice drink. Not the finest I've had, but better than the other Serpis varations. It beats many other brands I've had, and it definitely beats all the Czech and German brands I've come across.

Just as the classic 55, this one is a mighty fine refreshing drink, very well suited for a hot summer night. If you like your drinks a little sweet and light in taste, I would certainly recommend this one.
