Absinthe Review: Absinthe Eichelberger Brut 83.2 Festival Edition
Absintheur: Ádám Oláh 14.05.2012
Amazingly smooth yet clean taste with loads of well counterbalanced anise and a slight, natural candy-like touch (peppermint and calamus, maybe?), completed by vague herbal notes adding some extra smoothness to the taste. The louche and mouth-feel are just unbeatable (if not by pre-ban). I personally prefer the original Eich\' 80 Brute with its even cleaner taste, but 83.2 is a wonderful version on its own right.

I hate to sound like Janice from \"Friends\", but OH MY GOD!!! This Absinthe is just absolutely wonderful. It has a high alcohol percentage, but you can\'t neither smell nor taste it, it is THAT smooth. The louche is thick as the London fog, but as clean as a swizz mountain lake. I. love. it. If you want an absinthe, with a full body, a fulfilling smell and a smooth finish, get this one. It\'s worth every drop.

Addendum to my previous review: To elaborate on the flavors; There is a fabulous woody, floral experience on the palate! There are the flavors of Melissa, lemon, mild cedar, wormwood and a delicious (almost funky) fresh chlorophyll, fresh herb flavor! totally magnificent! Of the 15 various Absinthe's I have tried this is the best to date! You need to keep a bottle of this on your Absinthe bar! It is worth every cent (or Euro, as the case may be) you pay for this!

I tried this because it is undiluted from the Alembic. There is a strong anise flavor (which I like). The louche is thick and has a wonderful creamy mouth feel that continues to release the delicious burn of the anise oils for a long time. The alcohol is incredibly smooth! I expected a burn from the high alcohol content. There isn't any! The wormwood and other herbs are perfectly balanced to be supportive throughout the drink opening across the palate and provide a complex subtlety to the drink. Magnificent Absinthe! I will buy much more!

I'm a big fan of all the Eichelbergers, but I've got to say this is the best. It's even better that the Brut 80 (which is one of my favorites). It has a wonderful aroma, thick louche, and an amazing flavor where the alcohol doesn't overshadow the herbs. I hope Alandia has this one around for a while as I want more!
