A very nice offering from Duplais.



Color is perfectly clear. No visible sediment.



Louche forms very nicely with beautiful trails and great layering.



The aroma brings forth a lot of fennel and coriander along with a nice hint of wormwood. The coriander has come forth quite a bit as it has aged.



The flavor is quite sweet, with a nice balance between the trinity. Very enjoyable. There's just a hint of dryness that balances out the anise nicely.



All in all, definitely in my top 5 blanches. A worthy addition to any liquor cabinet.

Being a blanche, it's perfectly clear. No errors, particles, or colours. The louche is very attractive. Slow to startm pretty contrails swirl with increasing speed. Separate tiers remain distinct for a long time and then quickly blend together. The louched drink is thick, perhaps a bit too much so. It's a nice enough white with some grey shades but nothing special. The aroma has a lot of wormwood. Anise is also quite present and tastes somewhat like star anise. Fennel and hyssop round it out. Wormwood asserts itself in the flavour from the beginning, followed by tangy anise and then fennel. Slightly minty and medicinal with a medium, wormwood-dominated finish. The mouth-feel is kinda of creamy but leaves something to be desired. It's a solid blanche with a unique character that is difficult to pinpoint, but I find it enjoyable.
