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

LOUCHE ACTION 8/10
Quick, as expected, and swirls to a nice thick louche.

COLOR AFTER WATER 7/10
White with a blueish tint. It's got a short way to reach the creamy goodness of the Zürcher Fée which is my definite La Bleue-louche benchmark.

AROMA 19/30
There is a rather nice herbal character to this one. With wormwood playing in the back and with fennel up front. There's a minty touch to it in there but sadly it is easily overpowered by alcohol.
After adding water it tries to keep up but ends a bit flat somehow.

MOUTH-FEEL 6/10
It's pretty ok and full at first but the alcohol once again catches up and ruins the richness. More water added mellows this but it's still noticable.

TASTE 15/20
Very ordinary La Bleue style but with a stronger alcohol bite, of course. The wormwood does come back here after it's gone missing a bit in the aroma after adding water. Over all the taste is what you'd expect to find in a La Bleue with little surprise but the higher proof manages to make it taste less clean than an ordinary 50-55% La Bleue, even though there's no actual flaw in process noticable here.

OVERALL IMPRESSION 6/10
This is nothing but a crowd pleaser for a specific market in my opinion. This is from the same maker as the La Ptite, which I find a notch better.
