COLOR: Absolutely crystal-clear.

LOUCHE: Actually more of a louche than I expected, considering the sparsity of the usual herb bill.

AROMA: Wormwood with a bit of mint underneath. None of the typical blanche "sweet" scent.

FLAVOR: Once again, mostly wormwood. Less bitter than you might think, with the lack of significant anise & fennel to counter the A.A.

FINISH: Warm and numbing, with a pleasant "bite".

OVERALL: This was a tricky one to score, as it is so purposely skewed toward the wormwood characteristic. My ratings, for aroma and flavor especially, take this into consideration. (What would be "unbalanced" in a more traditional formula is not necessarily so in this case.)
That being said, I enjoyed this unique sample, and I appreciate getting the chance to further "educate" my palate.
