Appearance: Very bright and natural peridot.

Louche: Not quite opalescent, but attractive. Maybe a touch too thick. Star anise possibly?

Aroma: Inviting. Minty sweet with nice balance between the holy trinity of wormwood, fennel and anise.

Flavor: Thick mouthfeel with a good deal of numbing. Pretty sure that's the star anise talking. Tasty, but a bit heavy. Not quite as complex as I'd like.

Finish: Herbaceous and strong. Lingers for quite some time.

Overall: A sold effort for Sweden. This is a nice drink. If they toned down on the star anise just a bit, it might give it a little more complexity and let the other herbs shine through. Still good though.
