St. George's Absinthe Verte is 120 proof and is a lovely, darkish yellow in hue. The hue changes to an emerald green, immediately following the secondary infusion. However, by the time the absinthe is bottled, sent out and exposed to light, the color changes to this darkish yellow.
Your illustrious Pop Culture Examiner sipped it neat, following a brief sniff. We had not done our homework before this initial taste. We didn't know that absinthe tastes like anise, which tastes like black licorice. The brandy is barely discernible.
If it were possible to create an absinthe which tastes like red licorice, then, we would be a more exuberant participant. Since this is not the case, we didn't one-up the experience by dropping an ice cube into our glass.
This would have brought out another level of flavors, which are described as vivid. It also gives the drink a pretty louche, which is a milky cloudiness. Sounds enchanting!
