Sampled on 06/12/2010
(Bottle No. 869 of 1182, group 0106F) Pale milky green, louches when water is added.
Initial strong anise flavour is quickly joined by bitter wormwood and spice notes.
Sampled with the addition of three parts water, this makes a lightly aniseedy drink with spice and vegetable notes. The addition of sugar greatly improves the experience and magnifies the more subtle camomile notes.
Very clean and fresh compared to lesser absinthes.
