Two Birds Absinthe
Emily,
I drink Absinthia Brand Absinthe exclusively and it’s delicious!!! . I have not tried Two Birds. I’d like to see you add Absinthia Absinthe to your list.
Mansinthe Absinthe
Kevin,
By Far the best Absinthe I've ever had ! It Reacts exactly as an Absinthe should, with a perfect louche and a wonderful aromatic release of botanicals accompanied by a delicious and super smooth flavor. Great job Marilyn!
Mansinthe Absinthe
Jonathan,
Despite the celebrity endorsement, this is a solid absinthe that seems balanced and authentic. It creates a great louche and goes down like silk. Makes a fantastic standalone as well as a great Death In The Afternoon. It’s an absinthe I will special order again.
Copper & Kings Absinthe Alembic Blanche
Willow,
Much too sweet for my taste. Nice on its own. No sugar cube needed but even a few drops made my sazaracs too sweet. Won’t be buying again.
St. George Absinthe Verte
Daniel,
I’m just discovering absinthe. This is delicious - great for sipping neat even at 60%. Smooth and satisfying. I’ll be getting a bottle.
Grande Absente
Stephen,
It is like drinking licorice. If you like that, then this is the absinthe for you.
Copper & Kings Absinthe Alembic Blanche
Brandon,
absolutely wonderful to drink the only issue I have is that I can easily drink the whole bottle before I know it worth every penny. granted I had it without mixing it with anything but the flavor was great as it had a Black Licorice taste which I loved but I can see that not working for some people.
La Muse Verte Absinthe
Matthew,
Wow.... this is very flavorful. And a whole different feeling than just drunk. Euphoric almost. Felt warm and relaxed. Would not suggest straight. Either with cold water and sugar cubes or champagne. If you think your going to drink a lot of this you won’t make it. 2-3 drinks is plenty.

Sean,
I've had absinthe cocktails before that almost made me sick, I didn't realize until trying this one neat that what I had been drinking wasn't real absinthe because this was nice on the pallet. Definitely got more of the floral and sugar notes compared to the black licorice which was nice
Absente Refined
Timothy,
I enjoy this stuff, especially for the price point. Dripped water over sugar, and bottoms up. Not over powering, yet has some kick to it.
Lucid Absinthe Supérieure
Joshua,
Love this stuff. Great with ginger beer and lemon juice.
Absente Refined
Zack,
My first time trying Absinthe I had a preconceived notion that this was going to taste bad. However I was pleasantly surprised at how good it tasted. The best part however is partaking in the tradition and watching the reaction with water. Absente is also amazing and a necessary ingredient in Sasaracs and many other drinks.
La Clandestine Absinthe
Jason,
It harsh liquorish notes brought me back to college winters. The first sip is like licking a flaming sugar cube, but gentle tea and floral notes become more apparent on subsequent sips.
La Muse Verte Absinthe
Huagang,
First absinthe and I really like it

Michael,
Good taste and smell love it and most likely will buy more
La Clandestine Absinthe
Gavin,
Strong but lovely aniseed taste.
Grande Absente
James,
Good
St. George Absinthe Verte
Ryan,
Good quality for a good price. Nice tingle on the tongue. Potent outside of a louche. Pleasant sipper in a louche. Clean taste. Good product.
Butterfly Boston Absinthe
Teemu,
Very pale green, but nice strong louche. Warm herbs to nose. 3 to 4 parts of water opens the taste, dilutes the alcohol enough to make this pleasant to drink, and gets rid of the overwhelming sweetness. The taste is very complex with baseline of an evergreen forest. The bitterness is not present in the aftertaste at the same level as in the base taste. I would have given 10 starts if it wasn't so sweet.
La Clandestine Absinthe
Teemu,
0.5 to 1 parts of cold water dilutes it enough to open up the complexity in the taste, but this absinthe works great with more water, too. Very nice louche, gets very milky even with small amounts of water. The aroma is floral and full with anise as the louche already hinted. Taste is surprisingly not too sweet, even though sweeter than most absinthe bleue I've tasted, and this still has the typical slightly bitter aftertaste. The bitterness and length of the aftertaste are boosted if you add more water, as the sweetness is set to background. In my experience quite typical absinthe bleue, but slightly sweeter than I've learned them to be, and very well balanced. Funny enough, the sweetness makes this one of the best absinthe bleue I've tasted.
La Muse Verte Absinthe
Charlotte,
The scent is straight up anise, black licorice. I am not a fan of that flavor at all. I dropped 3 parts ice cold water over 2 sugar cubes into 1 part La Muse with the attached absinthe spoon. Then stirred. It went from a clear grass green to a milky greenish yellow color. The flavor is nothing but anise. After 3 small sips my tongue went numb from the strength of the anise. It’s very smooth, but very stout. After the 3 small sips I was already feeling the alcohol. I recommend this one, but in very small doses! It would have all stars if I was more of an anise lover.
Vieux Carré Absinthe Supérieure
Cara,
First absinthe I tasted, and at the time I described it as a sensual sip. It's still my go to.
Absente Refined
Tim,
Liked it. Not how I remembered it, but still very nice.
Grande Absente
Justin,
A mid grade versatile Absinthe. It’s an easy introductory bottle.

Alexandra,
More herbal than anise, so great for people who want to experience absinthe but don’t like black licorice.
La Clandestine Absinthe
John,
This was my first taste of an Absinthe, didn’t know what to expect, but I thought it was great!
La Clandestine Absinthe
Matthew,
First Absinthe Bleue, third Absinthe tried overall. Prepared as recommended by Clandestine: 3 parts water, no sugar, no burning. Initially crystal clear, appearance after 3 parts water added is a thin milky white. Nose is strong with anise, with an underlying sweetness. First sip is more gentle than expected. Licorice, with underlying notes of spice and a baseline mild sweetness. Slight drying effect in the mouth. Further sips give variations of the anise/licorice and spices, but at the 3:1 ratio I'm not really picking up any other significant contributions. A little disappointing overall. Nothing per se bad, but just overall lacking enough oomph.
La Muse Verte Absinthe
John,
Well damn. This is my first time trying Absinthe. I don't like licorice flavor. But for 68% alcohol... This is the best drink ever. Especially when you prepare it the correct way with the sugar cube and ice water. I am a huge fan.
Mansinthe Absinthe
Brainerd,
It's creamy. It's a full, rich, licorice-heavy (anise-heavy) drink. Still, this is the most "smooth" Absinthe I have enjoyed.
Lucid Absinthe Supérieure
Mark,
For a first foray into the world of absinthe I was pleasantly surprised. This goes well over a sugar cube and some precious drops of very cold water.
Mansinthe Absinthe
Tina,
This is a tasty, clean absinthe that doesn’t overpower you with wormwood. My go-to for absinthe. I’ll keep this one stocked.
Grande Absente
Randall,
It is a good starter absinthe. I like it a lot. You get a lot of licorice.
Lucid Absinthe Supérieure
Pete,
Lucid is terrible; this site should not sell it.
Absente Refined
Daniel,
Still contemplating the effects vs. the flavor. Overall, I’d recommend everyone try 👍
La Clandestine Absinthe
Mike,
Wow! Hands down the best absinthe I’ve had. Delicious anise flavoring, sweet bit not TOO sweet as traditional “ceremonies” can make others. Definitely going to keep this one in my cabinet!
Mansinthe Absinthe
Fabian,
Best Absinthe on the market, if you feel “Anti-Christ Super Star” is the pinnacle of Manson’s career then you’ll be a fan of his absinthe. Hands down 100%!
Lucid Absinthe Supérieure
Mr.,
I loved the licorice taste. I drink all my drinks straight up so thats what I did with this one. It also had alittle carmel taste to it but as far as the spleen no taste. LOVED it though.
Absente Refined
Jason,
Wow. I love the warm feeling. Great experience
Mansinthe Absinthe
Fabian,
Smooth like St. George but with a hint of vanilla on the lips for aftertaste. Well done 💯
La Clandestine Absinthe
Todd,
I really dig this. It was my first foray into absinthe. A friend got it from here and I had a small taste and was hooked. To the ones saying it is too sweet to add a sugar cube should read the bottle. They recommend just cold water no sugar. From the taste it is already there. I am now just trying to perfect a local bartenders drink which uses a small bit of absinthe in it. I have had it w/ cold water and cold soda water. I prefer the soda water for the carbonation.
Lucid Absinthe Supérieure
Brainerd,
It's got a very strong licorice/anise tone. It's not as creamy as Mansinthe, but it's got a great licorice taste. I am a power loucher, so I don't do the whole "sugar cube, drip" thing.
Copper & Kings Absinthe Alembic Blanche
Clara,
Very dry absinthe, which isn't bad if you add sugar to it, but there's also a strong smokey/peaty flavor that I wasn't a fan of. Would probably be an ok mixing absinthe.
La Clandestine Absinthe
Robert,
...uh, wow. The flavor is solid yet complex. If you like the licorice of absinthe, you’ll love this.
La Muse Verte Absinthe
Sean,
Knew it would be licorice flavor but thought it would be slight. It is overpowering. If you like black licorice get this. If you don't yuck.
La Clandestine Absinthe
Jamie,
This is my go to absinthe. I've tried at least half a dozen so far and this is the one for me. I prefer the strong, clean flavor of this over some of the others. I was very happy when this one became available for purchase instead of sitting on my wish list.
Mansinthe Absinthe
Chris,
This is the best absinthe I have ever tasted. Smooth, delicious! Kudos Mr Manson!
La Clandestine Absinthe
Scott,
I suppose this is nice if you like such a heavy blast of mystique (and anise). The bitterness of the wormwood comes thru initially on the tip of your tongue, followed by an almost cloying sweetness of anise. I can’t imagine pouring this over a sugar cube. I can’t say I’m a fan of the legendary drink, but it is interesting experience.
Mansinthe Absinthe
Brainerd,
Very smooth, almost creamy (in a good way) absinthe with a brilliant mouth-feel.
St. George Absinthe Verte
Jessica,
Love that this absinthe is more floral and easier to imbibe than most absinthes.
