Appearance: Really pleasant. Not too dark, not too light; a lovely clear and unblemished peridot green.

Louche: Builds slowly and thinly at first, but ends up right where it should be. Very pretty, with a combination of milk and greenness, with opalescent orange at the bottom. With my face near the glass while judging the aroma, lots of prismatic effects can be seen.

Aroma: Really nicely balanced. I can detect the sweet anise, wormwood AND fennel readily, with hints of a grassy meadow, citrus, and maybe a hint of star anise...very complex.

Flavor: Not quite as complex as I was expecting from the aroma, but it's pleasantly sweet and light with a nice wormwood profile.

Finish: The finish gets a bit overwhelmed by star anise, and becomes a bit to jelly beany for me.

Overall: This is a really lovely absinthe, especially considering what was available when this was released...yet it still holds up against many of the current commercial absinthes available today.
