Le Tourment Vert, the high-flying absinthe brand has updated their formula to mix even better in cocktails. The color is no longer a Listerine blue, which is comforting. It is now a pale green, as you can see above. The new formula reveals greater hints of anise and they removed the sugar. This was a good call, Le Tourment is now much smoother, highlighting the pleasant characteristics of anise & hints of citrus. The aftertaste is clean on the palate without the sugary residue. Overall, the changes make Le Tourment a less harsh, more flavorful version of its predecessor.
Although, Le Tourment Vert is meant for cocktails, it is getting closer to being an absinthe that can be enjoyed the traditional way with sugar and water.
