It’s like regular Hendrick’s cranked up to eleven! All subtleties are gone. Right from the beginning, you taste more bitterness and more floral notes without losing any sense of refreshment. The wormwood doesn’t taste like absinthe so much as just earthiness. I don’t do a ton of sweet gin cocktails, so this works perfect in martinis, g&t’s, and Negronis. Would definitely get again.
