Editor reviews

Appearance: Inviting pale peridot; clear with no visible sediment. I'd like to see it a tad bit darker. The color seems more pale when it's in the glass.

Louche: light and inviting. Not as thick as some, but still very well formed and attractive.

Aroma: Wonderful aromas of fennel and anise with hints of alpine roots and herbs. While I don't believe genepi is used, one could be led to believe that it was, as the aroma is very similar.

Flavor: Very powerful flavors that you wouldn't expect, given the light louche. And I mean powerful in a good way. Strong flavors of alpine herbs accompanied by confectioner's sugar. A nice brisk quaff. Like a splash of ice-cold water on your face on a hot day. No real bitterness, but a pleasant dryness. Touches of honeysuckle and lavender.

Finish: Anise plays well with the spearmint and melissa to create a sweet yet dry lingering flavor. It invites you to drink more.

Overall: A very nice offering that will be a great intro into the category for an area that doesn't have a lot of choice on the shelves. Well done.
