*Edited over my first review. Enjoyed best at 4:1 with 1 sugar

The color is a clear, natural medium green. Louched, it was a very pretty shade of light green.

The louche was slow and even forming, lovely thick trails with nice color and opalescence. An attractive color and good thickness.

The aroma was enjoyable and delicate, yet at the same time had a lot going on.. It was clean, fresh and inviting.

Flavor is a bit lighter than the other Jades, yet mildly woody and earthy. Quality anise and fennel are up front, with wormwood just behind. There is a soft spiciness and creaminess that I enjoyed. Again, there was an undertone of wood and earth that seems to be present in all the Jades. Some seem to notice this more than others.

The finish was very reflective of the flavor. Balanced elements, a light pull lingering into a nice powder. I'd rate this just a tad behind the 1901 and VS for my taste.
