ABSINTHE BRUN LSO-M0013
This barrel-aged absinthe has the traditional luscious, mouth-tingling anise flavor you'd expect, but with a warm toasty edge, revealing layers of flowers and spice. Plus, a six-month age in oak barrels adds a hint of vanilla and caramel and turns this absinthe from clear to brown (fun fact for your blown-away friends).
The folks at Letherbee excel in creating twists on old classics, and this bottle doesn't disappoint. It’s the smoothest absinthe we’ve ever tried – but at 126 proof, it still packs a punch.
TIP OF THE TONGUE
Revel in the rich anise flavor with a variation on a classic abinsthe cocktail: Combine 1 1/2 oz Absinthe Brun, 1 oz water and a dash of Angostura bitters in a cocktail shaker with lots of ice. Shake until very cold and strain into a chilled cocktail glass
