Color: clear transparent, no coloration or sediment.
Louche: gorgeous; true opalescence; white clouds piling up to a very pale bluish grey.
Aroma: very inviting; finely anised; no dirt.
Taste: my god... just right; everything is just about right; mild but creamy; the gentle version of the same distinct wormwood that I tasted in Angélique with a delicate true anise overtone.
Finish: barely none, other than a refreshing feel that makes you long for more (no numbing whatsoever).
Effect: very calming, soothing but not typically alcoholic (i.e. idiotizing) at all.
Perfect. Absolutely lovely. This is the first bleu I've ever tasted and this is the first 5 star rate I've ever given here. I said before about Angélique that it was the finest mid-range vert I had tasted but I that couldn't possibly take it daily cause it was too wild; well, this one I can: it's truly a caress from beginning to end. Claude-Alain is a brilliant and sensitive distiller, no doubt about it. Count me in for a long-term relationship with this blue lady too.

Wow! This one is nice! It has many great flavors through and through. Creates a nice louche. I had never tried a "clear" absinthe before, but if they all have similar characteristics, count me in! I would definitely recommend this one to newbies and veterans. For those seeking rich flavor without having to dilute too much, this is for you. Because the alcohol is at 53% and not a typical 65-68%, you can drink this with a mere 2 parts water and 1 part absinthe and still not be overly concerned about the alcohol being too strong and you'll get such a rich flavor.

In a word: AMAZING! The taste is rich and yet delicate, suitable for drinking in every hour. The colour gives a sense of peace and the packaging is a true piece of art. The shipment was fast and safe and at a really fair price.
VERY GOOD !!
