Simple and strong. The green anise remains accompanied by notes of fennel and an impressive bitterness.Finish :
Good length. Marked by bitterness and green anise, both of them spectacular.

Perhaps I need to try this one again because I have not found it be a good absinthe as other contributors here.
Not very balanced, not complex, bitter.
Apart from the higher alcohol content and great price point it was a big dissapointment to me.
