The Schtick: “Switzerland- Mansinthe is a natural absinthe, distilled from vermouth, aniseed, fennel and other fine herbs. The product is made without pre-sweetening or the use of artificial flavorings to insure the highest quality possible – appeals to absinthe lovers and novices alike.”
Distiller: Matter Distillery (Switzerland)
ABV: 66.6% ABV
Nose: Anise, almond, vanilla bean and cassia
Taste: Thick and rich mouth feel but at the cost of some serious heat. Sweet anise, honey, vanilla, light cassia. Mildly earthy but the anise dominates as would be expected.
Finish: Really long and powerful. Not too hot here, but the heat is present. Warming, sweet and medicinal with a nice hint of candied anise. Slight horehound.
Overall: Overall really nice. The proof is powerful, and overall I have nothing to complain about. This is great neat, and I bet it would be good in cocktails as well.
