A strange feeling of trust came from this one, I saw how clear it was and knew it would be ace. Here we have La Fee, a recurring one, Blanche, France, standing at 53%. A real punchy warming number that just makes you happy. There is a proper smack of anise in aroma and taste. A real good thick louche, chalky white appearance. Wormwood makes a gentle but reassuring appearance. The alcoholic warming sensation is super pleasant and so suprising at 53%.
Look at the pretty peridot, must not say Phosphophyllite, colour. I remember La fee from a previous bottle, from France, NV absinthe Verte standing at 40%. Didnt notice the lower alcohol percentage until typing began, noticed something was different. Overall it is much more mellow than previous endeavours. It kinda has a juice like aroma, sweetness and not much else. Texture is super thin, before and after louche, and leaves the lightest of tingles. Taste does leave you wanting more. Between the sweetness, mild anise and water like flavours. Visually pretty but not a good absinthe by a long shot.
Tonight we have another La Fee, called XS Francaise standing at 68%. And thankfully it is a good one. Sweet and oily. Punchy herby and wormwood aroma. Louche, oh how I’ve missed you. Will say that it punches you with anise, wormwood and sweetness, but it fades away fairly quickly. Leaves you with a slight tingle on the tongue. Overall very pleasant, but not insane as one or two previous. So far this is the most drinkable though, its going down very quickly.
Matsix christmas hat is cuteness.
Anyways here we have Parisienne absinthe from La fee standing at 68%. Now this one I could smell from across the room. The main aroma and taste is a sweet liquorice with aniseed making its way in subtlely. But there not much else to it to be honest. Non oily and very clean finish, leaving little aftertaste.
Plus from now on I will actually make sure to show the Louche stage of the absinthe’s. This is its truer form, you add water until it goes cloudly, the drink comes alive at this stage
