Mata Hari Absinthe (750ml)

SKU #1046859

90-95 points and one of the Wine Enthusiast's Top 50 Spirits of 2009: "The nosing passes find prickly but pleasant, highly spirited buttery, oily, grassy, vegetal aromas. Palate entry is sweet, fruity and herbal; anise enters at the midpalate and blends well with the fruitiness. Concludes sweeter than most absinthes, nicely herbal and a touch honeyed." (10/09) From the importer: Mata Hari is an authentic absinthe from Vienna, Austria that has been made continuously since 1881 by the Fischer family. Classified as a “Bohemian” absinthe, Mata Hari is currently the only absinthe sold in the United States to be made in this style. Pale green in color and with less anise bite than its Swiss or French-style counterparts, Bohemian absinthe is made to offer more versatility in cocktailing than simply as a rinse or finishing spritz. Named after the famed exotic dancer who was executed as an international spy in the early 1900’s, the Fischer family selected Mata Hari as their brand name feeling that it appropriately captured the mystery and intrigue of absinthe, along with the sense of exoticism that the spirit’s namesake so masterfully embodied in her lifetime. In keeping with the Bohemian absinthe style, the anise in Mata Hari is prominent enough to supply that famous absinthe louche when combined with water but is restrained enough to allow other botanicals to share the stage. Some of these ingredients include cinnamon bark, orange peel, and peppermint leaves. 60% ABV.

A complex and heady aroma of anise, fresh cut grass, chocolate, a full cabinet of spices, and a beautiful louche with water to boot. This is a perfect absinthe for sipping on its own or in a cocktail where you want it to be a featured ingredient, not just a casual rinse (although it's perfectly good at that too).
