Absinthe Contest – Which Absinthe is the winner?

1:14 pm in Absinthe Brands, Absinthe Reviews by ALANDIA

Yesterday we had  a little Absinthe contest. We sampled Absinthe Vieux Pontarlier, Absinthe Berthe de Joux and Absinthe Butterfly. Our overall winner was Absinthe Vieux Pontarlier. It  has a very creamy mouth feel, with a good anise base, which is surrounded by wonderful additional herbal notes.  This separates this Absinthe in our opinion from the other two competitors.

Absinthe Berthe de Joux is on our opinion too flat. Don´t misunderstand us, the Absinthe has a very unique taste, but we miss a “base” where these fine notes are build upon.

Absinthe Butterfly wins the second place. We love the fresh citrus taste of this Absinthe. But it is too special to qualify as an overall winner. In the category “specialty” it would win the first price.

What´s your opinion about these Absinthes?
