Overall, a decent absinthe. One that can be used to introduce people to absinthe as a basic brand.



The color is clear and natural, but not really green. More of a hay/straw color. No visible sediment.



The louche seems a bit unnaturally slow, really only starting after close to a full measure of water is added. It does show as very thick and oily after that point.



The aroma is average before water, but the boquet definitely opens up after louching. A bit medicinal, with wormwood and anise.



The taste is decent but unremarkable, but tends to burn a bit on the way down. A tad too astringent.



Overall, nothing bad, but nothing great. A decent beginner's absinthe.

It's OK. Not great, but not bad.
