|Flavor / Mouthfeel||5.0|
I've been sent to the Meadow of Love!
Appearance: The coloring of this absinthe is absolutely beautiful! It has a beautiful green color that is achieved without looking artificial nor does it have any artificial ingredients in it
Louche: Excellent louche that comes in like billowing clouds. It reminds me of a summer day and laying out in the grass and watching the clouds rolling by in the sky (not storm clouds mind you)
Aroma: A very heavenly aroma that fills the room and very fragrant, closing my eyes while the water is dripping and the aroma is being released sends me off into a relaxing place
Flavor/Mouthfeel: It has such an excellent taste to it. There's a tiny hint of anise to it with the herbs taking center stage making it a very pleasant taste experience.
Finish: It leaves a tingling sensation in the roof of my mouth and on my tongue. It's note too much of a tingle and not too small of one, it's just right. The tingle doesn't fad real quickly either, it pleasantly lingers
Overall: This is a very excellent and sophisticated absinthe! I take my hat off to Cheryl Lins for making such a wonderful absinthe! It is great to have such a great absinthe here in the US market and not have to deal with mediocre absinthes that you get at a large liquor store chain.

|Flavor / Mouthfeel||2.5|
Worse than Lucid
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!
