Colour is beautiful and flawless. Sadly, L'Italienne belongs to small minority of absinthes being so properly coloured and having such a traditional tinge.

It contains enough of anethole buddies to louche in a nice semi-translucent manner, so let it be.

Aroma is really intense, both neat and louche, very fragrant, strong, assertive but delicate at the same time. And it smells of herbs, not of anise foremost.

Flavour is very complex, at 1:2.5 (the perfect ratio for that batch), builds gradually and everythings is slowly revealing its charm.

Finish is long, spicy, wormwoody and citrusy.

Overall, that particular batch needs neither critique nor feedback. Those who happen to have it, should re-think why absinthes they had in such a high regard previously, are simply weak when compared to L'Italienne #2
