- ABV 38%
- Closure: Cork
The rapid popularisation of this historical curio has led to an increase in synthetic Absinthes and outright imitations. These frequently employ artificial colouring and inferior ingredients, spawning an 'Absinthe Watchdog' type site in the US to warn consumers. 'NV' is a new, low ABV brand of 'Absinthe' from the LaFee company targeting the mixed drinks market. Unfortunately, it comprehensively failed to impress the team at www.wormwoodsociety.org
We'll post our own review as soon as a sample hits the desk.
Other reviews... Why bother? This is so unlike genuine absinthe that it's hard to understand why anyone would voluntarily buy it (my bottle was given to me), unless they just wanted to appear to be drinking absinthe. It's no bargain, either, since what you essentially have here is a partially pre-louched absinthe (the first approximately .8:1 of dilution has been done for you to make it 38% abv). In my market, this costs $25.00 to $28.00. If you work the math backwards, to account for the extra water, this would be $45.00 to $50.00, bottled at 68% abv. At slightly above this price there are plenty of authentic alternative choices. I really struggled here between 1, Unacceptable, or 2, Barely Acceptable. I landed on 1, because of the combination of low quality, and the strange vanilla dominance. Honestly, if I were tasted on this blindfolded, I might not even guess that it is supposed to be absinthe. - www.wormwoodsociety.org
