Before water the absinthe is a vibrant, mossy green. Foresty. The aroma is rounded, honeyed. Anise is the only discernable herb. Purfumey.

The louche is a tad tin but nice. It ends a pale, opalescent sea green. With water the aroma becomes much more anise-heavy, but still has notes of honey. Not much wormwood.

The flavour is smooth and balanced, very sweet. Finally on the palate there's a good wormwood presence. Earthy with a cedar note or two, perhaps some powder. Not very complex but tasty.

The finish is long and sweet, but lacks complexity. A bit candyish.

I think there's room for improvement but it's a very enjoyable, albeit dark, absinthe. I did expect something a bit more idiosyncratic and adventurous based on its namesake but it's quite good anyway.
