Week 43: Snow Fairy [52 Whispers From The Muse]
Overall: Pleasant and different. Although it’s a bit more complex than it’s Vetre sister, they both show promise.
I didn’t want to put too much comparison between the 2 sister Absinthes in the breakdown above so I figured I’d put a couple of notes here. The Snow Fairy has much more forgiving Louche than The Holy Spirit, starting much stronger right from the start and easily gaining it’s opacity much quicker. It has a bolder aroma and flavor and seems to have a bit more experimenting going on.
According to a posts on their Facebook, the Verte is made with 6 herbs, 3 at maceration and 3 more for flavor, while this Blanche is made with 17 and it shows. While Snow Fairy’s complexity doesn’t present in a way that many do with various flavors trailing into others over the course of time, it does cast a unique, homogeneous flavor.
So far these have quite a bit of potential. I hope to be able to revisit Golan Heights’ future batches.
