50° alcohol...musty wormwood/lemon smell...not shockingly anisey but stuns the senses, regardless...found in a barcelona liquor/convenience store near old town, where i saw it last year...appears to have remained on the shelf(there were two bottles)from the beginning, maybe from the 1970's-80's...

translation...
typical ibiza aperitif from a base of absenta and lemon syrup...mix with very cold water, one part suissé and four parts water...made and bottled in ibiza

i like my absinthe 'swissay' ! in ibiza, i'm going back to ibiza ,i'm going back to the island, island in the sun...lalala, etc.etc.etc...
suisse
