Color: An attractive, natural emerald hue.

Louche: Developes well. It ends up a tad thin, but still attractive. Still retains a greenish hue.

Aroma: Some anise and a uniquely distinctive black pepper aroma. Also a touch of alcohol heat at 3:1.

Flavor: It falls apart here. The anise starts of sweet and pleasant, but then you are assailed with the aggressive bitterness of what I can only take for macerated wormwood.

Finish: The same wormwood bitterness sticks at the back of the throat for longer than you'd like.

Overall: If Kyle would ever decide to start distilling his wormwood instead of macerating it, he could end up making some pretty decent stuff. Until then, I'll pass.
