    Overall: Super interesting product, the names would suggest it taste like absinthe but it is far more complex herbaceous than that, and interestingly no strong anise flavours at all.

A vermouth à l’absinthe! The name would make you think this is tastes like absinthe but alas is does not! Aromatised with absinthe herbs and spices such as wormwood, lemon, and Genepi.
