Hands down my favorite all around Absinthe. I don't know if it's the different herbs used than with other Absinthe's, but this drink is a thing of beauty. It's warm yet cooling, with a little spice/bite, but without the heavy licorice flavor. It's still there, but not as strong and Good and Plenty-esque as some other Absinthe brands.  I've found with all the other Absinthe's I've tried it was either sickly licoricey, or licorice and with a bitter aftertaste, or just a faint licorice/peppermint flavor - like watered down Scope.

St. George Absinthe Verte has a whole other level flavor.  It's a glass of nothing but goodness.  Maybe it's because the base spirit is brandy and I'm a brown liquor kind of guy (whiskey/bourbon, aged rum, cognac/brandy).  I have no idea, but what I do know is that I now have a go to Absinthe and after testing the waters (5 brands down - Lucid, Pacifique, Sirene, Kubler, Vieux Carre) I'm pretty much done searching.  I'm so sad it took me so long to get to try St. George.

From now on I won't be chasing the green fairy, I'll be following the Monkey!
