Color: I had to give this a 1.5 because the color is artificial.

Louche: It actually has a nice louche, but again, because of the artificial coloring, I can't justify giving it a high mark.

Aroma: It comes and goes and not too impressive. It has mostly an anise type aroma. It definitely doesn't fill the room.

Flavor/Mouthfeel: Flavor is just average. Nothing to write home about.

Finish: There is no lingering sensations. It hits after a sip and then is gone like a flash. The numbing sensation just barely sticks for a very tiny bit and then it's gone.

Overall: It's just an okay absinthe. Nothing special at all. Best description would be it's a beginner absinthe, but there are better beginner absinthes out there such as Lucid. I was not impressed at all and for the price I paid at the store, I could have bought a much better bottle of absinthe!
