    Sweet grain on the nose. Sweet cereal, raisins, and vanilla, then wood comes on in the finish. Tannic aftertaste. Lighter body and color. Smooth wheated whiskey, but average at the price.

    Full flavor of lightly toasted nuts, hazelnut specifically, but sweet sweet sweet. Rich creamy body, mouth-coating. An old standby liquour, last popular in the 1970s-80s. Mixes well with coffee and chocolate.

    4.0 out of 5 stars
    Sweet anise liquor, with some astringent herbal depth and a good alcohol whoosh mouth to nose. Louches with water-- the way to drink it -- but also good as a sweeter substitute for Pernod or absinthe in cocktails.
  7. Kübler Swiss Absinthe

    Other Liqueurs — Switzerland

    Tasted

    5.0 out of 5 stars
    Light licorice and floral on the nose. Explodes in the mouth with anise, spicy and bitter/astringent herbs, eucalyptus, mint, and alcohol carries all that from the tongue up through the nose. Thick mouthfeel and licorice sweetness lingers a long time. Clear liquid, louches with water. A beautiful and robust absinthe for any use, particularly in classic cocktails. If you don't care whether it's green or not, this is the one absinthe to have.
