Week 28: Redux [52 Whispers From The Muse]

Redux
Overall Rating: 3.8
Appearance: 3.5
Louche: 4.5
Aroma: 3.5
Flavor/Mouthfeel: 3.5
Finish: 3.5
Overall: 4.0
Style: Verte
ABV: 65%
Country: USA Distillery: Golden Moon Distillery
Appearance: Deep olive green, natural and clear.
Louche: Extremely dynamic, thick, slow and full… damn sexy. Aroma: This is how you want an absinthe to smell, A nice Wormwood with solid Fennel and Anise. Pleasantly perfumes the area of the pour which becomes a bit more subdued after louche. Flavor/Mouthfeel: Again, a fine example of a well made Absinthe. Well balanced with a full mouthfeel. Despite the very thick louche, the Anise isn’t overbearing and it’s sweetness is subdued.Finish: Really pleasant Absinthe. A bit of a numbing and a wee bit of burn but that would probably be pullled back with a heavier dilution than 2.5:1.
Overall: A surprisingly fresh Absinthe that reminds me of a non-funky Jade. Another positive Absinthe from the US.

This is a respectable drink that, were it more readily available here in MA, could easily be a goto Absinthe for daily drinking and cocktails. Redux has a well balanced profile that would mix well in many drinks, especially in drinks that you want to keep the sweetness down.

Drink Up NY has these fore a really decent price, at the time I’m writing this review, If you don’t live in a puritanical state like MA that restricts the shipping of spirits from state to state, it’s worth picking up.
