Color: A wonderful amber

Louche: Gradual clouding leading up to a nice layer effect at about 2:1. Ends with a gorgeous caramel color with hints of pink and green.

Aroma: Sweet anise plays well with the minty wormwood. A touch of spice and a lot of cognac and old books.

Flavor: The anise is a bit less pronounced than in the 1914 bottle I tried, but still noticable. The wormwood is more at the forefront than I'm used to as well. Not as balanced as some of the other vintage Pernod Fils I've had, but still delicious.

Finish: A little heat and a little bit of bitterness from the wormwood, but it is incredibly smooth and velvety when a touch more water is added (about 3:1).

Overall: It's always a treat to taste 100 year old absinthe. As always, I'm left wanting more. MUCH more.
