I received some of this essence from a gentleman who runs the site that sells it.



The color is definitely artificial looking, but not unattractive. A little over the top on the neon green though.



It louches of pretty quickly, but doesn't turn opalescent. The neon green color gets brighter, so now it looks like a green HUGS drink.



The aroma is heavy on alcohol and anise. That's about it. Not unpleasant, but not too enjoyable either.



Flavor is pretty much all anise. I taste a very faint wormwood bitterness, but it reminds me more of southern wormwood than AA. Not much balance here at all.



I was thinking about giving this a 1 in finish because of the aftertaste of Everclear, which is astringent and not very pleasant, but there is some anise sweetness that makes it a little better than the descriptor for 1 (unpleasant).



Overall, there's no need to buy any of this. At $10 a pop, it's cheap, but then by having to buy a $16 bottle of Everclear, that brings it up to close to $30. Consumers would be better served throwing in another $20 and buying a bottle of Lucid or Kubler or even Absente.
