Absinthe without leave

[absinthe]Delaware Phoenix Absinthe Superieure “Meadow of Love” (New York) – The herbal side of the licorice family, but not fully expressed as fennel, but rather more like one of those monk liqueurs (Chartreuse, etc.). Brittle in both flavor and spirit, with a broil of alcohol as a top note. Piercing. Impossible to ignore. (1/10)

Delaware Phoenix Absinthe Superieure “Walton Waters” (New York) – Waxed herbs and finely-balanced herb, licorice, and bitter fruit rind characteristics. Very long. Kinda brilliant, really. I greatly prefer this to the “Meadow of Love” bottling. (1/10)
