Essai #5 from 2009.

Appearance is of course crystal clear neat. With the addition of water, opaque and slightly translucent with gold and amber highlights and the occasional blue tinges around the edges.

Louche layered nicely starting slowly from the bottom with beautiful curling trails with each drip of water.

Aroma Fills the room. Amazingly robust and beautifully floral. I could sit and enjoy the aroma in the glass for hours.

Flavor in this five year old bottle at 4/1 reminded me of lemon cake and hot liquor.
At 5/1 an easy drink that you can savor every sip. Succulent, powerful and delicious.

Finish is quite dry and long lasting.

Overall this is one blanche that stands out in a crowd of monotony and is thoroughly an enjoyable experience.
