Appearance: clear, bright and natural. No visible sediment.
Louche: quick and lovely. milky yet opalescent. Attractive.
Aroma: redolent of wormwood with complimentary anise aroma. Minty with hints of baby powder (hyssop) and citrus (melissa).
Flavor: smooth and silky. Anise hits you right away, but is mild and not overpowering. The wormwood is flavor-forward as well, but also not overpowering. Instead, you get the refreshing dryness, but no astringence.
Finish: smooth with anise, wormwood and mint. mild numbing sensation from the anise. Long lasting.
Overall: A solid blanche offering. Complex and tasty. A very traditional profile.
