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

Louche: beautiful oily swirls with the very first drops. The louche then develops very quickly and remains thick, almost completely opaque even at 1:5, in a lovely greenish white.

Aroma: the typical Libertine aroma that somehow reminds of Italian grappa, and is usually either love or hate. Some anise sweetness, but not too much. Absinthe is clearly perceived. A herbaceous background with a light and pleasant pleasant note of alcohol.

Taste: The sweetness of anise is there, but restrained. Then the intriguing bitterness of absinthe. Not spicy like its sister Libertine Amer. This is not a complex absinthe, but it’s interesting that its taste remains intense even at dilutions higher than 1:5, making it an ideal drink for summers when it can be a refreshing drink light in alcohol.

Finish: wormwood lingers in the mouth pretty long.

Overall: I really appreciate an absinthe that can be diluted this much, and still remain tasteful, at an alcoholic grade of only 55. It has a very specific personality, like the other Libertine products. Its quality/price ratio is compelling, making it an ideal choice for regular daily use or as a present.
