COLOR BEFORE WATER 1/10
An ugly, clear, artificial, fluorescent light green color.
LOUCHE ACTION 0/10
No louche whatsoever.
COLOR AFTER WATER 0/10
It remains as clear as before, completely transparent.
Before water: Very prominent alcohol, a nasty chemical smell, yet fresh and a bit minty.
After water: The aromas (if one can call them like that) become a bit more prominent but basically remain as uninteresting as before. An artificial minty flavour mixed with alcohol invades the nostrils.
The alcohol has a bad taste and immediately numbs the tongue. Fresh, minty, a slightly bitter taste appears to remain in the end. The chemical taste prevails however. Yuk.
Terrible. The alcohol is very prominent (to be expected), mixed with an unpleasant chemical taste, perhaps in a failed attempt to be considered as herbal. Its fresh, minty taste is about the only reason why I still give it a few points.
OVERALL IMPRESSION 1/10
The alcohol is much too prominent and the unnatural, artificial taste prevails. Apart from that, it has a fresh, minty taste which quickly disappears to reveal a (very slight) bitterness. To be avoided…
Brought back from Spain in a special box with the four other Le Diables (Vert, Jaune, Bleu, Noir), each a 4 cl bottle, for almost no money.
