Just like original Absente, but worse.

Color - Atomic candy-apple green, like Pernod Anis, brighter than the original. Vivid yet spooky.



Louche - Not alot of action here, just seemed to cloud up. And yet, it was still what I would call a thin louche, that took along time to get there.



Aroma - Awful. Alcohol, followed by a little what, star anise maybe? Not at all candy-like or anything, just bad vodka-like.



Flavor - Cheap vodka mixed with a little good n'plenty. Maybe I haven't enough bad absinthe, but this was the worst I've ever tasted.



Finish - Some bitterness stays with you, more so than in the original Absente, of course.



Overall, this is the most awful tasting thing I've ever had the misfortune of drinking. Holds the distinction of being the first absinthe I've ever sinked.
