The colour is a deep, artificial green. It's attractive but definitely not natural. The aroma is very spicy. There's lots of star anise, but there's also oregano, mint, and citrus. Call me crazy but I think some fresh chili pepper flavour would meld well with it.

The louche is whitish green, quite nice but very thick. Now the aroma is still very anise-heavy but the mint has come forward and replaced the oregano. The aroma is less complex than before.

The taste is dominantly very sweet star anise with a pinch of oregano. Wormwood is present but reserved. Notes of lemon peel and leafy greens. The finish is numbing, but long and surprisingly complex with a mingling of flavours. It unfortunately devolves into sugariness at the very end.

As star anise-intensive oil mixes go this is impressive. It branches out into some unusual flavours and integrates them well. It can't hold a candle to a well-crafted, distilled absinthe but it's one of the better examples of its style.
