A label in German on the back of the bottle states the following (roughly translated to bad English):

"Bitter spirit 68% Vol., contains coloring agents E-133 and E-110. Montana Perucchi, S.A., founded 1877, manufactures this absinth according to a new recipe with more wormwood. This enhances its taste and effect and the anise adds to balance making it digestible [?]. Manufactured in Spain by Destilerias Montana Perucchi, S.A. Joaquim Vayreda 12 - Badalona (Barcelona)"

AVERAGE SCORE 55

COLOR BEFORE WATER 6/10
Transparent darkish matte (no brilliance, neither gimmicky effects) mid green.

LOUCHE ACTION 7/10
Quite a good louche, turbulent clouds are easily achieved by pouring slow.
Some flakes can be seen forming in mid-louche which is nice.

COLOR AFTER WATER 6/10
Light green, translucent. Could be thicker.

AROMA 11/30
Before water, lemon balm, hint of wormwood, little anise, very little alcohol. After water, mostly lemon balm.

MOUTH-FEEL 5/10
Oily, missing creaminess and other nice features but nevertheless of a drinkable kind.

TASTE 13/20
Wormwood is in the front, anise behind. Dry, not sweet.

OVERALL IMPRESSION 7/10
For me, it went down well. I have had some other Spanish brands and this is the best so far.
