COLOR BEFORE WATER 10/10
It's perfectly clear.

LOUCHE ACTION 8/10
Heavy white thick louche.

COLOR AFTER WATER 10/10
Very nice white milky totally opaque.

AROMA 19/30
Mainly fennel and a touch of wormwood and of course anise. Nice and rich. A bit thin after adding water.

MOUTH-FEEL 7/10
Slightly numbing but quite full and smooth. Lacks a little something though.

TASTE 15/20
Nice but nothing extremely special. It's a decent La Bleue. Nothing particularly wrong either though.

OVERALL IMPRESSION 7/10
Ordinary La Bleue but well made and very drinkable.

COLOR 10/10
Clear

LOUCHE ACTION 7/10
Clouds quickly, nothing special.

COLOR AFTER WATER 8/10
Opaque, white.

AROMA 20/30
Predominantly anise.

MOUTHFEEL 7/10
Fairly nice but lacks the creaminess of the La Bleue Clandestine.

Taste 14/20
Anise and fennel sweetness followed by some mild lingering wormwood bitterness.

IMPRESSION 7/10
Average La Bleue. Like the other La Valote offerings, it needs a boost in the flavor department.

COLOR BEFORE WATER 10/10
Clear, it is la bleue after all.

LOUCHE ACTION 9/10
Quick and tremendous

COLOR AFTER WATER 9/10
Titanium white

AROMA 23/30
Star anise and fruit. Clean base.

MOUTH-FEEL 7/10
Spicy and rounded.

TASTE 18/20
Typical, fennel is the predominant note, then anise, herbs, licorice and mint in the very back. Not weird. Wormwood is very crisp and shines through.

OVERALL IMPRESSION 8/10
Watching and reading about Willy Bovet I had an impression he is an Artist and that artistry shines in his booze. Me likes.

My now empty bottle of Bovet was good enough for me to order some more.



I never got an absinthe that was so bold on fennel. It is also very crisp and clean. I like it.
