Color: a very very light peridot green, clear and without any visible sediment.

Louche: slow to develop, and very thin, with some nice orange reflexes. At 1:3 it’s almost completely gone.

Aroma: before adding water alcohol is by far the dominant note. With water other aromas appear, mostly verbena, that are not the usual expected one.

Taste: very little anise is found here, that may explain the weak louche. A rather strong bitterness from arthemisia and verbena. Other herbs I can’t really trace. A general taste of wild herbs.

Finish: bitterness lingers in the mouth pretty long.

Overall: this is an absinthe on its own, definitely not a traditional one. It seems to me more a bold experiment in wild and organic herbs rather than the product of a distiller interested in traditional absinthe and its history. It can’t be diluted further than 1:3 without becoming tasteless, and having that little anise it seems designed to have sugar added (something I never do). Compared to its sister products, the Safran (yellow with saffron) and Rouge, it is far less interesting as it is inevitably compared with the very many Vertes available.
