Appearance: Damn near green, with a slight topaz hue. There's some slight haziness.

Louche: Translucent fire opal glow, creamy yet reflective. It's still clearly a verte, as the louche maintains a beautiful color.

Aroma: Pre-louched it smells wonderful and near-drinkable. Sweet and sour, vanilla, anise, candied orange zest, wormwood, and mild fennel notes.

Flavor/Mouthfeel: The anise is perfectly bold and spicy, the fennel perfectly balanced, and the wormwood is velvety smooth...there's a tingly euphoric warmth filling my mouth and throat.

Finish: Goes on forever but not long enough...peppery, juicy, warm, a whisper of earthiness, some sort of spice (perhaps allspice?) and candied orange again.

Overall: Mindblowing. Even the best modern reproductions are still a shadow of what this absinthe is.
