Absinthe is terribly undercoloured with just a small point of green tinge.

The louche is too rapid and one-dimensional, badiane presence is evident.

Scent is relatively pleasant, if not exceptional, a good measure of coriander, followed by fennel and helluva of badiane.

Upon tasting, pontica note comes over and saves the disaster started by colour and aroma. As a result the taste is spicy and bitter, giving more body to overanetholated texture.

Compared to Libertine Amer, it is much, much better, but still not anything one would be grabbing all the time.

This was purchased at my local Vom Fass, which doesn't sell Libertine in the standard pre-packaged bottle, but in their own generic packaging; however the label clearly indicates that it is indeed Libertine 72.

Appearance: clear green-yellow, appears naturally colored, louches to a very pale white-peridot color

Louche: Turns very thick almost immediately indicating significant amounts of star anise present

Aroma: There is a significant amount of clean dirt smell present along with a lot of anise and herb components. It reminds me very much of original Doubs.

Flavor: Again I taste lots of clean dirt, prominent star anise, and artificial-tasting herbs along with some bitterness.

Finish: Tongue-numbing anise followed by bitterness and a hint of sweetness after the bitterness has dissipated.

Overall: Too much star anise, bitterness, and fake herbal flavor for my taste.
