I am quite grateful for the sample graciously provided me so as to keep my tastebuds busy, working for you.



The Color is bluey and a bit pale for me. The word is Verte, right? Not incorrect, but seems a bit weak to me.

The Louche is pretty quick to form. I got a lot less blueness than I expected from the color.

The Aroma before water is not unpleasant but a bit alcoholic and medicinal. After water it is actually more so, at least till 2:1.

The Flavor is not as sweet as I had been led to believe, but still....I can see where people are getting the Juicy Fruitâ„¢ flavor, especially in the finish, but I'm not quite there.

The Finish is persistent with a strange over or undertone that I'm not sure I want to identify.

Overall, it's not the fruity onslaught I expected, but that said, it's not really my style either. I am not sure what it is, the magic just ain't there when compared some other vertes I regularly consume.
