Better love anise!
Overall rating
 
2.1
Appearance:
One of the best looking bottles, in my opinion, though the absinthe is a little darker than most.

Louche:
It really does not have any louche effect. When diluting the dark green turns slightly more clouded, but nothing near the normal louche. Not a major loss to the product, but takes away from the traditional absinthe feel.

Aroma:
ANISE! Very strong anise aroma, if you don't like the strong smell, you wont like this.

Flavor:
ANISE! Very, very strong anise taste. Not my preference, which kills this product for me. I have tried several different ratios but none were to my liking. One must really love the anise taste to like this product.

Finish:
Again, anise. Vieux is drowned in anise. Not my taste.

Overall:
This is a poor example of absinthe. The flavor and smell are drowned in anise and there is not that certain absinthe feel when drinking it. In my opinion this is a beverage drowned in anise and called absinthe. Its one redeeming quality is; it is a very handsome bottle to put on the shelf, though if anyone wants to try it it may ruin absinthe for them!
