Color: Clear with no visible defect

Louche: very quick to form. Attractive.

Aroma: Mainly anise and wormwood with hints of earthiness.

Flavor: Light and refreshing, but kind of like most of the other La Bleues. Really nothing stands out. Kind of is what it is.

Finish: Lingers nicely. Refreshing with mainly anise.

Overall: It really doesn't stand out much from the other Swiss La Bleues I have in the bar, but it's good, like most of the others. Refreshing and pleasant.

A typical la bleue, having nothing to do with a first class les bleues, but being a some sort of clandestine absinthe one would get in the years 1940-1970.

The herb-bill is not very complex, yet what strikes the most is the good measure of wormwood upfront and not irritating anethole, despite the use of badiane what contributes to the quite a quick louche.

Taste is herbaceous, so is finish. Drier than in others and not that heavy.

Amongst other les bleues I would put it together with Jean Jacquet. Definitely not an anisette.
