Appearance: An attractive light peridot. No sediment.

Louche: Some people have complained about a lack of louche. I did not have any problems coaxing an opalescent louche with a simple drip from my fountain. It's certainly thinner than some, but not to the point of being an outlier.

Aroma: Sweet and inviting with top notch Spanish anise and prominent fennel that gives it a touch of a vegetal note. Very enticing.

Flavor/Mouthfeel: At 3:1, which is my typical preparation, the mouthfeel is pleasant. Not thick or tongue-coating, but present enough to know you're drinking some quality herbs. Lots of wonderful anise and, as with the aroma, fennel. Wormwood adds a crisp break from all the sweetness.

Finish: A touch hot, but nothing offputting. The flavors linger on the tongue without being obtrusive. No real numbing effect, which is a nice departure from some other brands that kill your tastebuds after a while.

Overall: There is nothing here to complain about. This is a very nice absinthe. An easy drinker that will please any absintheur.
