Very nice stuff, indeed.
Overall rating
 
4.3
Color: I LOVE the color of this absinthe. A nice, dark, peridot. Very inviting.



Louche: The louche builds nice and thick with great trails. Not quite opalescent, but so so close.



Aroma: Clean and refreshing with floral and earth notes. Reminiscent of a forest after a spring rain. High quality anise comes through well.



Flavor: Vegetal and sweet rounded out with nice anise and minty wormwood. Herbaceous.



Finish: A tad bit hot, but I think that might be due more to underwatering than anything else. The refreshing bitterness from the wormwood stays on the tongue for a while. The sweetness of the anise recedes rather quickly, leaving only the wormwood.



Overall: I was very pleasantly surprised with this absinthe. Not having heard much about it, I think it's worthy of being in ANY absinthe collection.

The colour is deep, clear fuille morte olive, more green than brown. It smells herbal, floral, and fruity at once. Lemony. Great balance. Absinthey but with a twist.

The louche is slightly thin but with good colour. Soft golden green, well textured. Water brings out the aroma of fruity anise backed with minty wormwood. Earthy, lemony, and foresty.

The flavour is very sweet. Good wormwood profile: woodsy, minty and bright. I started to detect a hint of funk but now I can't find it. Citrusy and slightly grassy. Very crisp and with a light, bitter undertone.

The lemony flavour and anise are prevalent at first in the finish, then the wormwood becomes spicy and weaves with earthy fennel for a lasting impression.

Very nice, very refreshing. I'd drink this any day.
