Louche: Nothing grabbed me, but it louched. It's different from the others I've tried because it didn't have that swirly cloud effect, it gradually clouded up equally throughout the glass.



Aroma: Peculiar is fitting, and the aroma matches the flavor.



Flavor: There's definitely a spiciness with a hint of mustiness to it, like an old abandoned house.



Finish: Definitely present, but unremarkable. Not sure if the batch I had was different from the one mentioned in the other thread inquiring if Ted changed the formula, but mine, dated Oct 06, has a prominent alcohol burn - which doesn't compliment the musty flavor and aroma.



Overall: Acceptable, but that rustic taste and aroma isn't for me.
