Description: A long time ago there was a very nice, typical Spanish style, absenta which was complex, fresh and mighty tasty. That was in the 50's and 60's. The Montana of that time was much different than the modern incarnation which doesn't live up to it's ancestor.

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.
Before water, lemon balm, hint of wormwood, little anise, very little alcohol. After water, mostly lemon balm.
Oily, missing creaminess and other nice features but nevertheless of a drinkable kind.
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.
