Absinthe Review: Absinthe Gothica

This is one of my favorite Absinthes. True, it is not a \"classic absinthe\" but it has a great taste, nice louche and excellent effect. I drink it in the traditional French Belle Epoche style with a couple sugar cubes, but only a 1 to 1 ratio of water - until it just completes the louche. It is fantastic.

Ok, my first review was kinda mixed.. but I discovered that Gothica makes an excellent replacement (not substitute) for Vermouth in a Martini. 5 to 1 seems about right. I use perfumy rose petals instead of olives as a garnish. If you have a bottle of this, give\'er a shot and it\'ll last a lot longer :)

Dont aproach this as you whould with any other absinthe, this is the most wicked evil stuff ever put in a bottle, its going to grab you and shake you, you might like it or you might not. Personally, i find it a mystery....do i like it? Maybe!

This stuff will kick your butt! I had a glass with my father, and had to go pick up my daughter a couple miles from the house.....I didn\'t get a few hundred yards before I felt like I was in a small boat floating on some very high waves and I had major tunnel vision. It was my first time drinking the Gothica, and I haven\'t driven after having a drink, so it may have just been a one time deal, but I seriously had to pull over for a few before thinking about moving again

Delicious. But the only thing \"dark\" about this \"absinthe\" is the hype. Totally not tradional, but a beautiful and inspired absinthe cordial. Violets fill your palette, especially when sipped next to traditional recipies. I would lose the dark gothic (goths are not flower children) hype and market the Violette aspect instead. Yes, I will reorder.

Now I know it sounds strange, but I expected Gothica to taste blacker. It feels like it's lacking some vital element, like a flavour is missing, there's a void within it. This isn't too say it's unpleasant, nor that it has no effectiveness. I'd possibly try decreasing the water ratio as this may up the flavour, however I'm a little scared of the consequences.
