the Color is lookin' pretty fake to me.

the Louche is there, but not especially intriguing. No opalescence here.

the Aroma is a bit Alcoholic, not a lot going on. After water it opens up a little bit. Faintly herbal, medicinal undertone. Weak.

the Flavor is a bit too sweet for me right off the bat. The more water is added, the more candylike it becomes. All the depth and complexity of a licorice jellybean..

the Finish is like having said jellybean in the back of my nose whilst all else but alcohol fades quickly.

Overall, I'd say it's not as bad as I've heard. On the other hand I wouldn't say this was good.
