Wow...lovely color, somewhere between peridot, and emerald, but it could be more vivid.

The louche was the creamiest I've ever experienced with ANY absinthe, and was lovely, and languid, reminiscent of a Belle Epoque snow globe.

The aroma was minty, and slighty fruity from the wondrous, generous Pontarlier wormwood, great fennel, and fine anise.

The flavor was tightly bound, and yet the individual components were also quite discernible, a truly remarkable feat. My only complaint was that there was a bit too much alcoholic heat, which slightly detracted from the great finish.

All Commercial Absinthes Should Be This Good!
