Perfectly clear like water. The aroma is strong floral wormwood, a little chalky. Very light anise profile. The louche is attractive but pretty thin.

After water the wormwood aroma has transitioned from floral to more minty. As for the flavour, the wormwood is obviously completely dominating. This is a really good thing in my opinion, as not every absinthe should be perfectly balanced or attempt to clone each other. A bit on the bitter side. Lots of mintiness. The floral character of the wormwood comes through on the palate more than in most absinthes. Again, anise is very light and I'm having trouble even tasting it. It's crisp and clean with no trace of funk.

It has a very long wormwood finish, becoming fruity as it fades; I'm guess this is the anise but it's so light by that point it's hard to tell.

I'm very fond of this absinthe. I wish it were made available again.
