Ideally green feuille morte on the rise.

The louche is too quick, at 1:2 is totally opaque. The finished colour is green and creamy.

The aroma, albeit deprived of wormwood note, reveals a pleasant nose of mint, veronica and anise.

Upon tasting, 1:3 is the best, absinthe is spicy and anisy, slightly heavy but not as much as a blanche. Wormwood well-pronounced, base is not obtrusive, fennel in the back, veronica prominent but not silencing the others.

It is almost an exemplary French verte, but I have no idea what has happened to the absinthe as of now and since they started filtering it.
