While there are some lovely aspects to this absinthe, such as the thick, and gradually unfolding louche, and the unusually fruity anise, there is, unfortunately, an overbearing grassy (vegetal) presence (in both the nose, and the flavor) that has caused me to sink more than one glass.

I suspect this is due to the assemblage method, since I can detect it in all of the Devoille absinthes. The color is somewhat on the darkish side, but I don't believe La Coquette was over-colored to such an extent as to cause this strong a flavor. Perhaps the veronica is also a factor, and I'm not a big fan of that particular herb.
