This absinthe pours very light in color - though you can tell it is a verte, distinctly.
I found it holds what I consider a strange louche action - kind of flat...
The louche itself is acceptable - could be a bit thicker but I wouldn't consider it thin.
At 72% I found it can take 5:1 easily. -Good mouthfeel overall but an odd, odd taste is present that I cannot identify. This same taste lingers in the finish making it a bit difficult to finish the glass.
Overall this doesn't really have much of what I look for in an absinthe. Perhaps a good fit for others though.
