To me, this absinthe is as perfect as it gets. The only reason that I deducted a point for color was that it wasn't particularly attractive in the louched state, although it was a beautiful medium feuille mort, with a tinge of green still visible.



The louche was spectular with much volcanic swirling action, and wonderfully opalescent.



The aroma, both neat, and post louche was amazingly spicy, floral, and complex, and it was nearly impossible to pick up individual scents, expect perhaps for the outstanding quality hyssop that was redolent of baby powder.



The flavor was equally amazing, and interwoven, and was augmented by that incredible "Rolls Royce leather" component that only many decades of aging can add to an absinthe.



The finish literally lasted for hours, and the entire experience (every time I louche a glass) is a trip to Absinthe Nirvana.
