Review:

Reviewed by Hartsmar 8/30/2005

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

LOUCHE ACTION 8/10
Heavy white thick louche.

COLOR AFTER WATER 10/10
Very nice white milky totally opaque.

AROMA 19/30
Mainly fennel and a touch of wormwood and of course anise. Nice and rich. A bit thin after adding water.

MOUTH-FEEL 7/10
Slightly numbing but quite full and smooth. Lacks a little something though.

TASTE 15/20
Nice but nothing extremely special. It's a decent La Bleue. Nothing particularly wrong either though.

OVERALL IMPRESSION 7/10
Ordinary La Bleue but well made and very drinkable.

Hartsmar scores La Valote Bovet 76 out of 100

COLOR 10/10
Clear

LOUCHE ACTION 7/10
Clouds quickly, nothing special.

COLOR AFTER WATER 8/10
Opaque, white.

AROMA 20/30
Predominantly anise.

MOUTHFEEL 7/10
Fairly nice but lacks the creaminess of the La Bleue Clandestine.

Taste 14/20
Anise and fennel sweetness followed by some mild lingering wormwood bitterness.

IMPRESSION 7/10
Average La Bleue. Like the other La Valote offerings, it needs a boost in the flavor department.

COLOR BEFORE WATER 10/10
Clear, it is la bleue after all.

LOUCHE ACTION 9/10
Quick and tremendous

COLOR AFTER WATER 9/10
Titanium white

AROMA 23/30
Star anise and fruit. Clean base.

MOUTH-FEEL 7/10
Spicy and rounded.

TASTE 18/20
Typical, fennel is the predominant note, then anise, herbs, licorice and mint in the very back. Not weird. Wormwood is very crisp and shines through.

OVERALL IMPRESSION 8/10
Watching and reading about Willy Bovet I had an impression he is an Artist and that artistry shines in his booze. Me likes.
