One of the most undercoloured absinthes I have ever seen. A total letdown.

On the other hand, the louche is spectacular and pleasant to look at. Because of skrewed colouration, the colour of a louched absinthe is very grim, unpleasant, whitened Payne's grey.

Aroma is resinous if that is the right word, whereas the flavour builds upon bitterness and lightness the same time, taste is, in fact, a great mystery whether to be that wrong or just that not bad, to put it simply.

Bitterness is too long lingering on the palate, whilst the rest of the herbs seem to be limited somehow.
