Color: For a guy who mainly makes Le Bleus, this is colored very nicely. An attractive peridot.

Louche: I was impressed by the louche. It builds well and ends up being thicker than most CAB offerings. Ends light green with touches of yellow and blue.

Aroma: Nice herbal notes with anise, angelica and wormwood. I almost get hints of violette.

Flavor: Whoa. Lots of macerated grand wormwood from the beginning. It's well beyond the bitterness level that I enjoy. I can't drink much of it. NOTE: This sample is from AbsinthExplore, so I'm not sure if it was the first or second version.

Finish: The macerated wormwood used in the coloration just sits on your tongue and in the back of your throat forever. I can't review any more absinthes in this sitting because of it.

Overall: All of the other qualities of this brand are enjoyable, but the flavor and finish (the most important qualities IMO) just are not acceptable to me.
