Mansinthe from Marilyn Manson

Mansinthe by Marilyn Manson...$55.99
66.6% (133.2 proof)
Mansinthe is a traditionally-made, Swiss-distilled absinthe commissioned and co-created by the experienced absinthe drinker and artist, Marilyn Manson. Absinthe has always been associated with controversial artists whose masterpieces were often considered shocking and scandalous at the time – those who pushed the bounds of 'normal' society. The artwork for the label is a watercolour painted by Marilyn Manson himself; a self-portrait entitled 'When I Get Old'. Its classic, traditional protocol and interesting color makes it a great introductory absinthe and it also shines in the Brunelle cocktail.

Tasting Notes:
Unusual, yet natural green tint with light blue reflections. Slow forming louche giving way to a thick green/white opalescence. Earthy, musky aromas combine with alpine herbs and flowers. Initial flavors are round and savory with a full, buttery palate giving way to a balanced, refreshing and complex finish.
