This Absinthe represents what many Absintheurs are looking for. Libertine Amer is a distilled Absinthe from the historical region of Fougerolles in France. It has a significant wormwood bouquet, no sugar is added and it belongs in the category of bitter spirits, which stands for a triple amount of wormwood. We recommend serving this Absinthe with two sugar cubes. It is a clear favorite for those Absintheurs, who are looking for a good effect.

|Tasting Notes:||Strong and slightly bitter taste|
Not wise. It totally tastes like like curry and the taste doesn\'t go off--at the moment I\'m trying to rinse the taste off with both water and my another Alandia purchases.
I do not recommend this to anyone, at least anyone who doesn\'t like drinking curry. It\'s awful.
I am more of a fan of sour than bitter, though I like bitter, but this is a great combination of sweet and bitter, ouch I think I just went blind, hang on a minute,
OK. I have never woken up in Morocco chained to a bed after drinking any Absinthe but this one may just do it. Anyway, I used a minimum of water, just enough so that La Louche barely touches the surface of the drink and absolutely no sugar. I filled the reservoir and then added just a few millimeters of water to get a solid, lovely louche. (My face is numb.)
I don\'t get any curry notes, thought this absinthe is very spicy.It\'s more like a combination of Aleppo and licorice. I would order this again. I\'ve also ordered La Suisse Verte. We shall see how that is. I am very pleased with this Absinthe and very happy.
Thank you. By the way, my wife, who does not like licorice or bitter flavors things just the smell is vile. Sigh!
So far it has been my favorite absinthe with no sugar (which I usually do not add sugar, unless the sugar is needed to bring out flavors of more complex absinthe).
