Member Reviews and Ratings of La Clandestine Absinthe
This was my first taste of Absinthe and I had no idea what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. I'm not a real fan of licorice but found this to be a very pleasant sipping drink.
Based on the description and all the positive reviews, I was expecting a superb spirit, but after tasting it myself and retasting, I find myself at a loss. The licorice flavor is too strong, giving it a jagermeister-esque flavor profile. I added water to enhance the flavor, which resulted in a cool chemical reaction and a subdued licorice flavor. However, it still wasn't to my liking.
This is my first Absinthe and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. Big licorice up front with a long finish sweet at first with floral and licorice becoming the predominate flavor. Definitely will be adding to the home bar.
Tastes like fennel seed candies from Indian restaurants.
My first taste of absinthe. The proof made me nervous about it but it was very smooth with great flavor. I sampled it straight and had no need to mix anything in.
sweet smelling, sweet tasting late night drink for after late supper, definitely something to keep in the bar, great absinthe aroma, unexpected taste of absinthe
I enjoyed this absinthe very much. No sugar needed. Very potent, used about a 2:3 water/spirit ratio. Simply blissful. Bright milky color. One of the better absinthes I've had the pleasure to experience.
A classic semi-sweet, herbal, aperitif / cordial, with a long & harmonious finish.
Unusual to have Absinthe on its own but it was very smooth.
Very natural, well-balanced flavour mix. No need to add sugar. Works equally well enjoyed the classic way, or in cocktails.
