Color- Crystal clear forest green with no sediment. Natural and bright.

Louche- Oil trails billowing down then back up after hitting the bottom of my glass. Perfect opalescence at around 3.5 parts water to 1 part absinthe.

Aroma- The anise combines with some flowery overtones when louching. I get some vanilla notes too. I would have liked it to be stronger.

Flavor- Flavor is soft and powdery. Hyssop nicely cradles the holy trinity of herbs. The wormwood is assertive but soft/floral notes take over. It reminds me of a quality blanche in some ways. I think mouth feel is just a tad thin but the addition of sugar helps round things out.

Finish- It tastes like a mixture of mint and Juicey Fruit gum then leads to a more straightforward anise/fennel taste.

Overall- Awesome absinthe. I’ll have to agree with others that this is a ‘dessert’ absinthe. More floral then herbaceous. More soft then pungent. I’m looking forward to trying the Walton Waters next.

Notes- I liked this most with 3.5 parts water and a bit of sugar.
