Description
 
Marteau Master's Reserve Extrait D'Absinthe is a faithful reproduction of the finest 19th Century absinthe. Made only with fine grape spirits and whole botanicals, Marteau is an exceptional American absinthe which embodies the true historical character of absinthe. These botanicals - Grande Wormwood, Anise, Fennel, Angelica, Iris, Petite Wormwood and Melissa - lend color, complex flavor, and a beautiful, opalescent louche.

Marteau Absinthe was created and is personally distilled by renowned absinthe specialist Gwydion Stone, the founder of The Wormwood Society. Dedicated to absinthe education, Stone studied 18th and 19th century distilling texts and recipes, and has had the unique opportunity to sample pre-ban absinthes. Faced with a market saturated by imitations and substandard bottlings, he was uniquely qualified to create a truly fine traditional absinthe.

Spicey, complex, and sexy December 22, 2010
Reviewer: Michael McCullough from Oakley, CA United States  
Green chilies on the nose, very jalapeno like. Like a spicy ethnic meal. This is wonderful, one of the best noses I have witnessed in an absinthe. If you like complex and savory this is a must try. One of my all time favorites and a must have in my opinion.

4-5 stars depending on taste December 11, 2010
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
Hate saying I find this less steller then everyone else. Obviously this product is the result of hard dedicated work & research. I prefer something where the wormwood flavor is more pronounced, maybe something a little more standard. This is very nice, but just not my personal favorite.
I've seen prettyier louche in other brands, but what counts is effect & taste.
However, I found this one more appealing with a little added sugar. This one has complexity!  The mintyness does not come across as mouthwashy. I would consider this the most versatile brand I have had, as with varying the amount of water or sugar different  flavors become more apparent, making this a  very fun one to explore. This one costs  more, but goes farther too.I'd reccomend trying this,particularly to those who may not like absinthe.

I guess I'm in the minority here October 2, 2009
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
I was extremely disappointed by this offering.  There was a very distracting taste in there I can only describe as metallic.  It was so distracting that I couldn't really focus on much else.  This is a perfect example of why one must try a product themselves instead of taking the word of others as gospel.  I know that some have motives for giving favorable reviews of certain products.  I give it 2 stars because I know it's a quality product, though I personally find it undrinkable.

A tossup between this and the Pacifique July 5, 2009
Reviewer: atom from VA, United States  
Hmmm, if I had to choose, I would say this is only a *TAD* bit better than the Pacifique.

There is a bit of a rivalry between the two brands.........
