Previous to this Blanche Neige, the only other blanche absinthes I've tasted were Kubler and La Clandestine. I'll say that this is a "full-bodied" blanche with a complexity all its own. Perhaps this is due to the génépi - but I found it quite a bit more aggressive (in a good way) than my previous encounters. Really quite promising - even with my preference for vertes... I enjoyed it thoroughly!

Appearance: Perfectly clear, as it is typical for this type of absinthe.

Louche: Lovely bluish trails with the very first drops. Then a medium thick louche, bluish with some hints of orange. Opalescent.

Aroma: A mild aroma but luscious, not too strong and well balanced. Little anise, some wormwood, a little bit of alcohol. Knowing it contains some genepi I went looking for it. It is there, but not overpowering at all. Mountains, it really reminds of mountains in summer. It is a pleasure to breath in deeply.

Flavor/Mouthfeel: surprisingly rich. Anise is well controlled, and wormwood is there with a lovely and light bitterness. Genepi is a lovely addition. A little almonds and cinnamon.

Finish: the complex aroma lingers long in the mouth and nose, with a taste of almonds.

Overall: I almost exclusively drink vertes, but I was curious of this one because of genepi. This may be the first Bleue I really enjoy. Its aroma really deserves careful attention.
