A typical la bleue, having nothing to do with a first class les bleues, but being a some sort of clandestine absinthe one would get in the years 1940-1970.

The herb-bill is not very complex, yet what strikes the most is the good measure of wormwood upfront and not irritating anethole, despite the use of badiane what contributes to the quite a quick louche.

Taste is herbaceous, so is finish. Drier than in others and not that heavy.

Amongst other les bleues I would put it together with Jean Jacquet. Definitely not an anisette.
