Wine Enthusiast 90 points - This cocktail-friendly absinthe is mild and herbaceous, hinting at fennel, lime peel, and a fresh hint of celery. Made with beet neutral spirits, it has a faint sweetness that plays around the edges. Light straw in the glass, louching to bright opalescent. - K.N. (Mar 2015)
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 90 points - Bursting with strong aromas of anise, cumin, fennel and sage, it opens up beautifully. Bright and robust on the palate, it displays subdued and exquisite notes of walnut, pine and sea-like minerals. The finish is complex and lingering with a welcome hint of pickled fennel. (Apr 2014)
