Absinthe Review: Absinthe Vintage Comas
Absintheur: Jack Thompson 11.07.2011
I am updating my review of this. Well, I wasn't going to open the bottle, but curiosity got the best of me, so I did. The aroma is all anise, as one would expect from a Spanish absinthe. This is what I expected with the taste also as most Spanish absinthes are overpowering in anise . The louche starts out very quickly and becomes very thick. While anise is present in the flavor, it isn't overwhelming. It is very well rounded and balanced with a nice creamy mouth-feel. I would love to have enough of this to drink on a regular basis as I really like it. Now that I've had it, the bottle is going back in storage until the next special occasion. :)

I just got my bottle today and am VERY pleased! I can't comment on the taste as I'm not going to open this one. But as a collectable it's awesome. The bottle, seal, and label are in excellent condition. It's got a very good fill level and a beautiful golden green color. As absinthe continues to become more popular vintage absinthe is going to be even more highly sought after. And as every year goes by vintage absinthe is becoming more scarce. If you are into collecting, I highly recommend this. It is a beautiful rarity and sure to go up in value.
