Absinthe reviews

Another sample, so graciously provided to me by Markus Lion. First off I must say that I've heard so many different views on the Kübler that I didn't quite know what to expect. When opening the bottle I was a little surprised of the smell. I guess I was expecting something a little smoother than this. It has a very earthy tone to it, almost a little burnt somehow. Tasted neat it was very strong, but the taste was way smoother and likeable than I had expected from the smell. And then, when adding water and sugar it really came to life. A very nice, still earthy, taste that definitely appealed to me - appeared. As expected a very good, white louche follows the water. As I understand, this is supposed to be some kind of "Suisse La Bleue" substitute, which I don't quite know if it qualifies as. But it certainly is a good absinthe which I highly recommend.
