I have had the opportunity of tasting 1st batch of that absinthe as well as the newest one that is not for sale so far.

Colour is deep enough and nice

Louche is gradual, desirable

Aroma is superb with very strong pontica, wormwood notes, some coriander with aniseed swirling around.

Flavour is bold, pontica goodness at its best, not heavy on the palate, refreshing and crisp. Finish is long with well-placed wormwood.

I really liked it. Although from the label and aura that surrounds it, it might have ended like Mansinthe or Duplais Balance, this one is a good, even very good, nicely-crafted traditional absinthe. Good work, Oliver!
