Color: Clear with no visible defect.

Louche: Nicely formed. Deep and opaque.

Aroma: Very nicely balanced with lots of wormwood. A great alpine freshness.

Flavor: A refreshing bitterness at the beginning, then anise, then a pleasant dryness with a touch of heat at 4:1. Unlike many Swiss Le Bleues which are more anise forward, this absinthe is noticeably drier and wormwood forward. Just how I like them!

Finish: A bit hot, but nicely balanced between anise and wormwood that lingers pleasantly.

Overall: Quite enjoyable. This would certainly be something that I'd like to encounter in a secret box in a mountain pass.

Absinthe appears as a crystal lake liquid that transforms slowly into a milk upon the addition of water.

The aroma is herbal, not herbaceous with present anisy undertones. Sadly, the taste is harsh and even acrid, despite the good measure of wormwood and nicely balanced bouquet.

The regular Bovet is better and smoother. Willy has gone a step further and released two more absinthes, so definitely he is developing, but is it in the right direction?
