My gracious thanks for the Sample so generously provided, as it was actually a pleasure to put my tastebuds to work on this one.



the Color is a bit dark.



the Louche is actually pretty nice, given the initial color, but could be a bit nicer if it started a bit lighter.



the Aroma is for me one of the strong suits of this particular offering. A decided citrusy element that is not at all unpleasant and invites additional sniffery. Smells lemony/tangeriney to me; my Wyfe and a friend said Orange Peel so I'll just say Citrus, in a strangely harmonic and not overpowering way.



the Flavor is in keeping with the Aroma (although the citrus element is mostly a nose thing), but maybe a lil' bit more Wormwood would help it along. Got a bit of the Juicy Fruit/Big Red thing, but not enough to put me off. Still quite nice.



the Finish wasn't unplesant, it could have lasted longer though.



Overall, I'd say go out and buy a bottle. It's the first domestic absinthe I've had that actually gets me there without any qualifiers thrown in. A nice traditional product but still individual, and I'm a guy who likes that.
