Color: a nice cognac color, more orange than pink. No sediment.

Louche: A very thin louche, in line with the very low content of anise that is evident to the nose. Mostly solid pink and orange, at 1:3 it’s almost completely gone.

Aroma: alcohol, the flowery acid notes of hibiscus, apples, spices. Virtually no anise or fennel in the beginning. As minutes go by the flowery notes fade away a little and something reminiscent of the holy trinity can be perceived.

Taste: mostly hibiscus with its flowery but harsh taste. Some bitterness due to hibiscus and wormwood, this might be better with sugar. Some anise is there, I guess it’s star anise.

Finish: an unusual bitterness lingers in the mouth pretty long.

Overall: there is so little here of the usual and traditional absinthes that it is difficult to classify it as an absinthe. Unlike the descriptions I read, I could find very little of the holy trinity. This is definitely not the average absinthe, but I can’t say it has an interesting personality of its own.
