If you think you’ve tried Herbsaint before, think again. Unless you were drinking Sazeracs in the thirties, Herbsaint Original Liqueur is a new/old animal. It’s still free of wormwood, though comparisons to Absinthe abound and the licorice flavor is clear and abundant. Herbsaint Original boasts a little more alcohol that the Herbsaint we’ve become accustomed to, but that boost doesn’t show on the deep, rich palate. If anything, Herbsaint Original is even smoother. This old recipe is new again and well worth a taste – compare and contrast with your next batch of Sazeracs and you’ll find everyone wins.
