Don’t know where to start? Here are some of my favorite absinthes on the market:
Obsello – Spanish. Fragrant, silky, and lush. 100 proof.
La Clandestine – Swiss. Blanche style (that is, not green). Lovely lavender tint to it, needs minimal doctoring to be pleasant. 106 proof.
Vieux Carre – American. Light and pleasant. 120 proof.
St. George – American. Peppery and lemon character make this one a little unique. Hot. 120 proof.
