This sucker advertised itself as having upwards of 250 mg/l of thujone when I got it. Surprisingly, now it's advertising itself as 20mg/l. I highly doubt that their production methods have changed...

Appearance: like green scope

Louche: Nope.

Aroma: Minty fresh. If you're wondering, that's not a good thing.

Flavor: yeah, this is definitely green scope.

Finish: Should I gargle and spit?

Overall: I really don't know what this is. It's the mint version of Zele apparently. And you should avoid it just as much.
