Tualatin Valley Distilling Oberon Absinthe Superieure
Bottle size: 750 ml
The name, taken from William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, pays homage to Oberon the King of the Faeries; a tribute, also, to the magical green fairy (la fée verte) of absinthe lore.
Oberon Absinthe Superieure is designed to allow you to dilute to your personal preference; supporting a big, concentrated profile, or a much more subdued and subtle impression of complexities. With its distinctive black-licorice flavor imparted by the use of anise seed and fennel, the wormwood imparts a mild bitterness that is balanced by the sweetness and citric notes of the lemon balm. As a result of backing off on the heavy anise notes of some more commercial absinthes on the market today, the louche effect is also reduced to a mild clouding, but with the benefit of the deeper botanical and floral notes coming more forward on the palate and nose.
