Color: Inviting and clear emerald. No sediment in the pour or bottom of the bottle.

Louche: Attractive louche when completed. Decent opalescence and oil trails when louching.

Aroma: Prominent fennel anise & hyssop. Nicely rounded and fresh smelling. The aroma actually reminds me of Meadow of Love but without the flowery overtones.

Flavor: Bright cheery and crisp that is heavy on the lemon balm. Hyssop and crisp wormwood round out the flavors. I think the lemon was a tad too aggressive for my taste.

Finish: Lemony and crisp finish reminded me of the flavor.

Overall: Another quality offering from Delaware Phoenix. I guess I’m a little spoiled with the Meadow of Love but this is still a well-constructed absinthe; you can taste the quality in every sip.

Note: I noticed that this absinthe is quite ‘durable.’ The herbal complexities are still especially present when louched with 5+ parts water.
