Appearance: Pale yellow that looks like an off color blanche. Natural though.

Louche: Nice oil trails with a smooth gradient. When finished it is a very thick louche. The color is nice and the formulation is good.

Aroma: Good anise forward smell. Not much wormwood and not much balance. No odd or exceptional aromas.

Flavor: Simple and like the smell this is very anise forward with maybe some lemon balm easily detectable as well. A very sweet absinthe on by itself, maybe overly so. It is smooth though. Nothing here that I would shun but nothing remarkable either.

Finish: The finish maintains the flavor for a decent amount of time but it doesn't do much else.

Overall: It is almost as if the producers were aiming for average. This is nothing that would go into my rotation but it is a very acceptable gatekeeper to the world of real absinthe. My only concern in marketing this towards newcomers is the pricepoint now that much stiffer competition is available for the same price. This is decent stuff but it is not really worth the pricetag that it is currently at.
