COLOR BEFORE WATER 10/10
It's a blanche, and it's clear...
LOUCHE ACTION 7/10
A nice louche is slowly being built up. It's not quite as thick as I'd want it, but it's very nice.
COLOR AFTER WATER 9/10
A slight yellowish hue is present, just very little, but still there. Should be without that...
Before adding water: It's a nice smell coming from the glass, but it's nothing very complex or intense. It's ordinary but not bad. After adding water: It's promising but it just won't come out of the glass. It never reaches a point where it's really good. It's just plain ordinary.
It's rather nice but it could be fuller. It leaves a spicy form of after taste. I'm not saying it's bad, it's actually rather interesting. But the mouth-feel is nothing special.
The taste is actually very nice. It's a bit unusual of sorts. It's that spiciness that keeps coming out. I think I recall something like that in the Kübler 57 as well. I do enjoy it, but it lacks some herbal complexity and that really smooth taste that many others present. Still, it's a decent drink.
OVERALL IMPRESSION 5/10
There is really nothing special about it. Nothing that is terribly bad but nothing that makes it stand out of the crowd, at least nothing that has anything to do with this score-sheet.
