Copper & Kings "Zmaj" Serbian Juniper Barrel Aged Absinthe Serbia (750ml) (Previously $70)

SKU #1304956

Named after the mythical Balkan dragon Zmaj, this Serbian juniper barrel-aged absinthe is an absolute thing of beauty. Typically the leaky, difficult-to-cooper Balkan wood is used for aging balsamic vinegar, but in this case it adds pepper, spice, and lift to all the botanicals present in the spirit. Using a pot-distilled muscat brandy base, classic botanicals like wormwood and fennel are used to add bold flavors of anise and licorice, bolstered by a Chartreuse VEP-like herbaceous backbone. At 65%, the absinthe is massive in its intensity, but never does the alcohol overpower the intricate flavors. Put simply, this is one of the best American absinthes we've tasted since the ban was lifted a number of years back.

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
