This is one of my favorites. Although I had to detract some points in the color and louche categories, this product more than makes up for it in flavor. While the color approaches that medicine green you see in a few other brands, it doesn't look artificial (or minimally so). The louche is slightly more sophisticated than average and although the aroma is nice, it doesn't fill the room with a bouquet of scents. The flavor is superior. It is complex, but not overly so. It is rather sweet, with a dominant anise flavor, completed by a subtle bitterness of wormwood. And the finish is very clean. In many ways, it's difficult to even taste the alcohol and no aftertaste is left behind.



All this, and it comes in a really nice bottle. This is one brand I intend to keep stocked.
