Color (3 points): My bottle is a deep green, not unpleasant, and free of sediment, but slightly darker and more amber than I would expect from a relatively new absinthe.

Louche (5 points): Louche action was fantastic, thick, full, strong.

Aroma (4 points): A lovely balance of herbal aromas with an earthy component

Flavor (4 points): Robust and herbal, with an earthy undertone that makes this a very meaty flavor profile.

Finish (4 points): Finish is a nice continuation of the flavor, tingling the tongue slightly, with the strong herbal notes remaining on the throat.

Overall (4 points): Vieux Carré is a wonderful addition to the domestic absinthe market, and is most certainly one of the best values out there at under $60 a bottle. The strong louche and flavor profile make it perfect when seeking something substantive.

Presentation (no points): Beautiful decanter-style bottle looks impressive on any bar, unfortunately the clear glass means keeping it displayed where light can degrade its color is problematic.
